    Well, lets look at it logically.  I wrote it.  Its my knowledge, my 
    wording and my time.  So don't sell it.  Don't change it without my 
    permission for your site.  Don't put it in a magazine.  You may use this 
    on your website, but only in full and only with  my consent.  But if you 
    have a chance to make some money off of this thing, let me know. Okay? 
    By the way, the characters and game belong to the company that made the 
    game.  Not me.  
    Championship mode takes the fighting in this game that much further.  To 
    me it adds a lot more 
    replayability to the game.  Especially when your playing by yourself 
    like I tend to do most of the time.  It also makes the game a little 
    more realistic in my opinion. You start with a much weaker boxer than in 
    Arcade mode but quickly get to that level and then beyond.  
    Since your reading the championship mode FAQ I assume you already know 
    how to do all the basic attacks as well as the combos for the Fighter 
    you selected.  Therefore I am going to bypass doing all of that.  And 
    concentrate on Championship alone.  This should also shorten the FAQ up 
    quite a bit.
                   Starting Championship mode:
    Select your boxer.  You can choose from any of the boxers you have 
    unlocked, except for MJ, Shaq, The Clintons and whoever the very last 
    character is.  So basically you can choose anybody that has a picture on 
    the back of the CD case.  After you have selected your boxer the game 
    will go to a short movie.  The game will say something to the effect of 
    finally my own gym.  As you drive past a building that doesn't look all 
    that great, but remember its yours.
    Your character starts at 25% in all of the following stats:
    Strength, stamina, endurance, dexterity.
    As well as those 4 stats you also have your expirence which you start at 
    0%.  That makes sense since you haven't actually had to fight anybody 
    when you first start.
    Strength:  Well, of course this is how much damage you do.  The higher 
    your strength level is the harder your going to hit your opponent with 
    each hit.
    Stamina:  This is basically what it is.  Your stamina level.  The higher 
    it is, the longer your boxer will be able to throw punchs.  The higher 
    the percentage is the more punches he can throw before the stamina bar 
    drains completly.  It also effects how fast you recover the bar.
    Endurance:  This attribute decides how well your boxer can take 
    punishment.  This is the most important attribute for your boxer to be 
    high on.  If he can't take a shot whats the point of being able to hit 
    anything.  Because unfortunatly you will get hit.  
    Dexterity:  This is simply put your boxers speed.  The higher the bar 
    the faster your boxer moves, dodges punches and of course the faster he 
    Expirence:  This is just what it says.  How expirenced is your boxer.  
    Basically everything brings this bar up slightly.  Prize fights, title 
    fights and even training brings it up slightly.  As far as i can tell it 
    doesn't effect how your boxers fights.
    Notes:  Endurance is the hardest to get and it probably the best to have 
    a lot of.  When you first start out you will have trouble getting this 
    but as you improve at the games you will begin to get higher endurance.  
    In my expirence endurance is the last one of your attributes to get 
    above 90%.  So account for that and try to work on it as much as 
    After each fight you gain points in all of your attributes except 
    Endurance.  So you don't need to worry about strength and such as much 
    as endurance.  So train endurance as much as possible and choose things 
    that will up your other attributes as well as Endurance.
                Training your Boxer:
    There are 7 different games you can choose from to train your boxer.  To 
    train your boxer you must select Train on the menu.  From there you will 
    be able to select the game you wish to train with.  Each game trains 
    different attributes.  So choose the one that best trains what you think 
    your boxer needs to improve on.  You will also be able to select how 
    long your boxer trains for.  The long you train the higher your 
    attribute will improve.  You may choose two different ways to train your 
    boxer.  Automatic or Manual.  Personally I prefer Manual, since you do 
    the games yourself and you know how well you do.  Automatic allows the 
    computer to do the training for you.  Which I don't like since you have 
    no control over how well the training goes.  
     And the games are:
    Jump Rope:
    At lower levels of this training game it only raises your Stamina 
    attribute.  But as you reach level five it begins to work on Stamina, 
    endurance and dexterity.  To do this training game you must hit the 
    buttons in the order they are sent down in.  You must hit the buttons 
    when the bottom of the buttons hit the line.  Notice that all four 
    buttons are shown lightly on your screen.  You must hit the button when 
    the bottom of the two bottom buttons reach the line.  Regardless of what 
    button you have to hit.
    Levels 1-10
    Strength       Down
    Stamina        Up
    Endurance   Up
    Dexterity      Up
    Expirence     Up
    Note:  All three that go up, all go up at about the same rate.  So do 
    well on this training and improve your character in three attributes.
    Speed Bag:
    Well, if you've ever watched Rocky you know what this is.  This Game 
    improves your Strength and your Stamina.  Basically you have to hit the 
    bag as fast as you can to get earn points.  You have a limited time to 
    fill your point bar up.  The time bar is the top one, which is blue I 
    believe.  To earn a RumbleMaster level you must fill the point bar 
    completly without running out of time first.  Points are gained by 
    making the bag bounce of the ceiling.  You have 4 punches to throw 
    during this excerise.  Right Jab, Right Hook, Left Jab, and Left Hook.  
    By fair the easist game in my opinion.
    Levels 1-10
    Strength       Up
    Stamina        Down
    Endurance   Up
    Dexterity      Down
    Expirence     Up
    Note:  Once again the two attributes that go up in this one go up at 
    about the same rate.  So if you want to go up more in one area choose 
    something else.
    Heavy Bag:
    Once again a basic boxers training excerise.  In this you must throw the 
    punch that you are instructed to do before the time bar runs out.  You 
    must be able to throw Right and Left Jabs and Body blows, as well as 
    Right and Left Hooks, and of course the Uppercut.  You are told how to 
    throw the punchs prior to starting the game.  This works on your 
    strength mostly.
    Levels 1-10
    Strength       Up
    Stamina        Up
    Endurance   Down
    Dexterity      Down
    Expirence     Up
    Note:  This is good for improving your Strength and Stamina at the same 
    time.  Only one that does that as far as I recall.
    Sway Bag:
    Basically its a bag in the middle of a bungee string.  You punch the bag 
    and then dodge it in the order that you are told to.  You only throw one 
    punch then dodge the bag the rest of the time.  You must be able to 
    dodge quickly left, right and back.  And you must be able to remember 
    the order of the dodges you are told.  The higher the level you get the 
    faster the bag is, the faster the commands are and the most you have to 
    remember.  This works on your dexterity mostly as well as one other 
    attribute mildly.
    Levels 1-10
    Strength       Down
    Stamina        Up
    Endurance   Down
    Dexterity      Up
    Expirence     Up
    Note:  You get the most in the attribute Stamina for doing this one.  
    But this training excerise is also very difficult in the higher levels.  
    Or at least to me.
    Rumble Pads:
    This game is made to improve your Dexterity.  This game makes you knock 
    down the pad that is up as fast as you can by hitting the correct 
    command button.   There are only 6 pads, but the game move as a high 
    rate of speed and is probably on the harder games to do.
    Levels 1-10
    Strength       Down
    Stamina        Down
    Endurance   Up
    Dexterity      Up
    Expirence     Up
    Note:  This is probably the most difficult game.  Or at least to me.  
    You get the most in the attribute Dexterity.  This is a good game to 
    become good at.  Helps your character greatly to have a high dexterity.
    Rumble Aerobics:
    Once again this game mostly works on your Dexterity as well as a little 
    on another attribute.  You must follow the commands of Julie your 
    instructor.  She can get rather annoying but isn't to bad if you just 
    pay attention to the commands you must enter.  The higher the level you 
    train at the more buttons you must use and the longer the chains get.
    Levels 1-10
    Strength       Down
    Stamina        Down
    Endurance   Up
    Dexterity      Up
    Expirence     Up
    Note:  This helps your Endurance the most.  This is probably my favorite 
    one to do.  Just because it improves your Endurance so much when your at 
    a high level. Only problem is Julie can get really, really annoying.
    Weight Lifting:
    This game improves your boxers strength and nothing more.  You must curl 
    the weights by holding either A or B until your bar raises into the 
    green area.  You have to get both bars into the green to gain points.  
    Once you do it once the green bars shrink.  You will alternate between 
    the buttons starting with A then going to B.  And remember the bar moves 
    up slightly longer than you hold the button for.  So you must adjust 
    Levels 1-10
    Strength       Up
    Stamina        Down
    Endurance   Down
    Dexterity      Down
    Expirence     Up
    Note: This is a good one for upping your strength quickly.  I usually do 
    this for a few days after doing something for my Endurance.  It makes up 
    for basically everything you lost on your Strength from that excercise.
    There are also two things you can do to improve your boxer without 
    training.  But these cost money.  Lots of money.  Which you earn by 
    winning prize fights.
    The first the the Vitamin Program which will costs you $10000.  It 
    raises your Stamina and your Dexterity.  Improves your Stamina by 10% 
    and your Dexterity by 5%.
    The second is Rumble Mass which improves your boxers strength an 
    unrealistic amount.  Which isn't much different from the price which is 
    just $25000.  Nothing major right?  Improves your Strength by 30% and 
    your Endurance by 7.5%.
                    The Calander
    You have your calander for all your events.  The months are exactly like 
    a real calander.  When you train you may choose how many days you train 
    for on this calander.  The longer you train for the more points you 
    improve or lose in the areas of responsibility.  Of course you lose at a 
    slower rate than you gain.  Also on this calander are the fights you 
    have scheduled.  Prize Fights will shown by a dollar sign and titile 
    fights are shown by what looks like a championship belt to me.  Not sure 
    though.  TV is a little small.  You have a posted date on your main 
    screen for Championship mode.  So, keep track of when your fights are 
    and make sure you don't skip them.
    You have two different fights you will fight in Championship mode.  Once 
    is the Prize fight and the other is the Title fight.  You begin unranked 
    in Championship mode.  So you basically start as a nobody and become the 
    world champ.  Basically a lot like Rocky.  It just takes you more 
    fights, and your much smarter.
    Prize Fights:  Prize fights are for money.  And to improve your boxers 
    skills, and your skills with that boxer.  They are a good time to rack 
    up wins and to earn money at the sametime.  Each Prize fight is worth 
    $2000.  You are able to skip these fights.  But why would you?  The 
    whole point of the game is to fight.  Not to train.  Or at least those 
    are my thoughts.  Anyways, if you skip the Prize fights you won't be 
    able to buy either the Vitamin Program or the Rumble Mass.
    Title Fights:  These you must fight.  You have no choice.  You may know 
    for a fact your about to get blasted out of the ring, but you still have 
    to fight each and everyone of them.  These are the fights that move you 
    up in the rankings and get you that much closer to RumbleMan.  And so 
    you know all of your opponents are just about even with you in attribute 
    points in the begining.  But you soon just blow them out of the water.  
    And as long as your competent with your fighter you should have no 
    problems.  Except of course against RumbleMan.  Because no matter how 
    much more pumped your character is.  He will still be able to pummel you 
    at times for some reason.
             Through the Ranks
    Starting Championship Mode:  You will drive past your new gym and it 
    will say something like, Finally my own Gym.  This is a short little 
    movie clip that will happen a few more times in the game.
    Rank 10:  You will once again cruise past the your Gym as the building 
    slowly starts to clean up it will say.  Getting ready for the press.  
    Basically  your Gym stops looking like part of the ghetto.
    Rank 7:  You will get an aerial view of your Gym and the surronding 
    area.  A building will get destroyed and your new parking lot will 
    appear.  Saying, a fighter needs somewhere to park. 
    Rank 6:  You will get a Rumble Mass stand in your Gym.  Saying, Now 
    thats Rumble Power.
    Rank 3:  You will have an added glass enclosure to your Gym.  Gotta make 
    room for new customers after all.
    Becoming Champion:  Your character dances around the ring much like in 
    Arcade mode.  Then it will go through the Credits, Save and then send 
    you back to the main menu.  Now make sure you allow the game to go 
    through the credit and then save.  Otherwise you beat RumbleMan for now 
    reason and will have to do it again.
                        What you Get
    Well, your probably wondering what the point of completing Championship 
    mode is.  Well, best I can tell its just two more outfits for each 
    character.  I could be wrong about this though, since I've only 
    completed it with 4 chatacters.  But for the most part the extra outfits 
    are much cooler looking than the ones you start with.  So that for one 
    makes it worth it to me.
    And in my opinion, Championship mode is just more fun to compete in.  It 
    has more variety than Arcade since you have a lot more control over how 
    your character devolps and such.  You are also in charge of how good he 
    is and such.  Championship mode to me adds a lot to the game just 
    because you are in charge of your character and you train.  As well you 
    get to train and do the games yourself.  So thats that much more that 
    you get to do in the game.  And its not just all fighting, although that 
    is the whole point of the game.
