In an interview with doghouseboxing.com, producer of the Fight Night series David Blank stated:
"We're talking about it right now. We're contemplating and we definitely feel there are some exciting things we can do with the Fight Night franchise and the Wii. When you play Wii Boxing it is a very simple experience and I think that is what they designed it to be just to let you know that you can throw punches.
"With Fight Night we have an amazing simulation of Boxing and so we need to take those Wii controls and tailor it to what the Fight Night consumer might want to experience. We are looking at it right now and I am sure you will see something some time in the future on the Wii."
While boxing on Wii Sports was fun at times, Fight Night would have to rely on accurately recreating the movements of the Wii remote and nunchuck to the on screen action, an area in which Wii Boxing fell short.
