eSports Boxing Club Renamed To Undisputed

On 21st September 2022, the developers officially renamed eSports Boxing Club to Undisputed. 

The announcement about the renaming explains: "That’s right, we’ve changed the name of our game. The name eSports Boxing Club has probably been the only constant throughout the development journey of the game, and it’s the name hundreds of thousands of you have grown familiar with.

"The game and the studio have developed and changed over the past two and a half years from a fun side project started by three brothers eager for a new boxing game to a truly authentic boxing game with the likes of Canelo, Fury, and Ali on the roster and a team of 30+ people working to deliver it. We think now is the right time to reflect that with the changing of the name."

The name change was met with largely positive feedback from fans judging by the comments on the YouTube video above.
