Watching Ronda Rousey knock out her opponent in under 5 seconds gave some of us the drive to try boxing for ourselves, but it's difficult for most of us to get into an actual ring. Well, the PlayStation VR (PSVR) has changed all of that by introducing a few boxing games that don't require skill or the risk of physical injury to enjoy. Alternatively, if you're looking for a punching game to get you active and moving, we know the best games for that as well. Check them all out here!

★ Featured favorite: Creed: Rise to Glory

Creed: Rise to Glory has the best graphics and gameplay style you can find in a VR boxing game. Not only does it look great, but the mechanics teach you a proper boxing algorithm. It reminds you to take breaks in between punches and each time you land a hit the controller even vibrates for better immersion!

You'll break a sweat, throw punches like the professional, and love every minute of it! Trust me. You want Creed if you're looking for an authentic boxing experience.

Knockout League is a riot with goofy characters, hilarious catchphrases, and silly mini-games. You can fight an octopus wearing a monocle and top hat or punch water balloons out of the air for crying out loud! You'll laugh your way throughout each and every level, I promise.

Don't pull any of your punches

We all love a good fighting game to get us up and moving inside our virtual reality headsets. Creed: Rise to Glory captivated me because of the intense style and real-life lessons on boxing. It's truly phenomenal how you can learn to throw a perfect punch, pace yourself, and get a good workout without having to leave the comfort of your own home. The high-end graphics and 3D sound make it even easier to get immersed in the game for these lessons as well! This boxing game will give you hours of fun and valuable knowledge to keep forever.
