    I've tried to beat Bald Bull 40 times in total in Mike Tyson's Punch-Out! But i can't, i know i gotta uppercut him during his bull charge, but it's so pixel-perfect that i can never ever do it. I even tried saving states before the bull charge, but no matter how many states i load, i can't ever get that pixel-perfect hit. I need help on how i can make that hit please.

    Try timing it a bit quicker.

    Sometimes i'm either too early or too late, i try going in between but nope, no matter what position it goes to, i always miss.
    I've seen gameplay of people doing it, and i go at the same time they do, except they have faster uppercuts, which is something i can't achieve.
    at this point i can assume i got a bad rom rip, but that's impossible nowadays, there's gotta be something i'm missing to beat this guy.

    I'd honestly be careful of input lag with this game, if you're running the game on an emulator there will be a good deal of lag there, and on an HDTV things won't go smoothly. If you need you can try slowing down the game or running it frame-by-frame in an emulator.

    This is highly impossible, i slowed down the game by a bunch and I've tried about 20 times already and he just won't get hit! And the fist is touching his face and everything.
    It's official, i got a bad rom rip.

    I mean I'm not ruling out the possibility but I think you know how unlikely that is. There's a reason people cite this as one of the hardest games ever.

    Welp, i'm a derp. I just realized i had to jab him in the stomach, not uppercut him.
    Thanks for the help anyways.
