Note: These articles are more for discussion purposes before E3. They'll be short, sweet, and to the point for a brief recap and looking into possible characters/stages for each series in Smash Bros. These also go by a "Don't expect too much" philosophy. Please remember to be civil in the comments discussion.
Punch-Out!! had its first form of representation in Smash in the form of an assist trophy in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. In Super Smash Bros for 3DS and Wii U, Little Mac became a playable character, with a single stage of his own.
Little Mac will probably make a return.
Doc Louis? Glass Joe? Sandman? Honestly, an assist trophy feels more likely than any of them.
The Boxing Ring feels like a likely stage to return.
If the Boxing Ring doesn't return, probably another boxing ring or a training room in some form.
