2 versions exist.  Besides the U.S. version, there’s also a Japanese version that announces the fighter’s names in Japanese, but you don’t get any quick ‘endings’ when you beat someone (they always get the full count).

Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr., and Mario are sitting in the audience.

RUMOR: The original had Super Macho Man's location as “Venice Beach, California” (the more common version shows it as “U.S.A.”), Bear Hugger isn’t missing from the 3rd lineup (he is on the common version), and Great Tiger can be immediately knocked out after you first knock him down (allowing for much quicker KO times – a half-minute as opposed to a full minute).
