TRIVIA: PANZA KICK BOXING was in development for over 2 years before release. The French programmers worked very closely with André Panza and the fighting moves of the kickboxers in-game were actually digitised from video footage of Panza himself. The graphics  taking up a "massive" 1.5MB disk space alone at the time of development had to be highly compressed/optimised to fit together with the game code & sound on to 2 floppies.
