Mickey Rogers
 

BIO:

Mickey Rogers was a professional boxer, but was expelled from the ranks after he accidentally killed a man in the ring. He currently stalks Southtown seeking opponents to vent his anger and frustration on, and enters the tournament for the same reason. When he debuted, Mickey had long hair, worn in dreadlocks. In AOF2, he has short hair. 

In the first Art of Fighting, Mickey becomes a small time hood who works for Mr. Big so that he can get money as a street hustler. in Art of Fighting 2, Mickey has since reformed, wanting to get back into the professional boxing circuit. In Mickey's AOF2 ending, his trainer Pops (who is visible in Mickey's stage as well) informs him that his time has come, and he has a title bout. We then see Mickey training for the fight, confident that 'Mickey the Mauler' is going to be the next champion of the world. His Burning Upper is similar to Geese Howard's Reppuken.

If you didn't know... Mickey was sporting pink way before it was "cool" for dudes to wear pink. Just kidding. It was never cool for dudes to wear pink. If you wear pink and you're a dude... you're gay. (That's cool and all, but don't come near me please.) Respect the personal bubble, is all. Anyway, Mickey has been an awkward character since day one. When I first fought against him in the early 90's arcades, I pegged him as a drugged-up homeless dude who wore tight-ass pink women's shorts... not to mention the matching pink headband & pink shoes.

It seems Mickey cleaned his shit up in AOF2 (in an attempt to be a Mohammad Ali clone), but I think it was too little too late. Mickey actually has some cool boxing moves and all, but a few punches alone don't save him as a design. Although his second appearance was more appropriate... his AOF2 look is very very boring.
