OBM 2.5 – Online Boxing Manager (www.onlineboxingmanager.com) – the boxing manager game goes international

Würzburg, 30 October 2013, Germany

Onlineboxingmanager.com – Online Boxing Manager (OBM) – the boxing sport simulation browser game has been released for version 2.5. The most important updates include the complete translation of the game into the English language and the integration of the United States as possible starting country for the manager's boxing club.

In the OBM, the user leads a boxing club and starts the training of young talents. His career starts with only a shabby backyard hall and some seedy guys supporting him. But with a clever training strategy, good fight planning and intensive promotion, he can quickly climb up the career ladder and become one of the world's most famous boxing managers, hosting several box champions instructed by the best trainers and most qualified doctors a boxing club can have.

Then the managers can compete against other players worldwide in this browser game. Hundreds of players have already been registered for the previous beta version. Several fight types, such as ranking, league, friendly and tournament fights are available. The game is completely free of charge and can be played just by using a regular web browser. Developer Mario Kaufmann would like to attract more international players with this current release. The 30-years old creator of the boxing game declares: “When we started to collect the first ideas for development back in 2009, we already thought about providing an international version of the boxing manager. With the now released English language pack, we put that idea into practice and hope to attract more people in other countries than Germany, where boxing is even more popular.”

Several updates are already planned for 2014: Upcoming features include animated livematches for all boxing managers, more strategy-based game components and guided beginner tutorials.
