I cant be the only one looking forward to this game

Punch out is the title to the next game in the Punch-Out!! series, and it will be a re-imagining of the NES Punch-Out!!, with new and old characters, new moves and a bit of a deeper storyline. It will be developed by Canadian developer Next Level Games and released on the Wii. It was first revealed at Nintendo's conference on October 2, 2008. It is slated for a May 18, 2009 release. Glass Joe, Von Kaiser, and King Hippo are all shown as opponents of the Minor Circuit, and the boxart shows a new opponent named Disco Kid. In an interview on October 9th, Charlie Scibetta, Senior Director of Corporate Communications for Nintendo of America, confirmed motion control will be used in this game. Nintendo of America announced that NES controls using the Wii Remote on its side will be available. Wii Balance Board support has also been confirmed.
Shigeru Miyamoto, best known for his work in the Mario and Zelda series, will serve as the game's producer

Game of the Year contender. I can already feel my arms hurting. Hopefully the motion-punching is responsive unlike Wii sports boxing. If it is then it will be GOTY for real.
I'm looking forward to this game. I'm very happy the release is planned for May, I didn't expect it that soon :)
I have high hopes. I am hoping its as fun as the original. If nintendo does it right, it will be a sick game with awesome sales/reviews.
2 Wiimotes with MotionPlus would be a knockout!!

But no such news has been announced :(

A game getting a PAL release a week after the US one

Let us hope its not shite then
It looks way too easy. I hope there's difficulty settings, and online play. Mike Tyson's Punch-Out and Super Punch-Out were ridiculously hard but they rewarded the player for better times and such, but the game industry has grown and we need more than a dozen+ matches to keep us on a game.

They better not skimp out on a surprise first-party title like this.
