There's nothing funny about animal cruelty or boxing, but we defy you not to raise a smile at this video of Animal Boxing, heading to DSiWare on Monday.

A cartoon-styled first-person boxing game is a new one on us, with the game boasting local wireless multiplayer modes and 50 fuzzy critters to smack around in single-player.

It's worth mentioning this title comes from Akaoni Studio and Gammick Entertainment, the double-team behind WiiWare's Zombie Panic in Wonderland, which found itself a decent fanbase after release.

Will you be putting down your 800 Points to get into the ring with these pugilists next week?
