As a young British
boxer enjoying his run as the world middleweight champ, Steve Fox was at
the top of his game. He had everything he wanted, except for one thing
- his past. Adopted in his infancy, Steve never knew the identity of his
biological parents or the origin of the scar on his arm. One day, Steve
is ordered to throw a fight by a Mafia betting high stakes on the fight.
Steve refused to cooperate and won the fight regardless of the threats
made against him. Unfortunately, the Mafia made good on their threats and
put a price on Steve's head. With the Mafia in hot pursuit, Steve fled
England for the United States to lead the life of a marked man. But no
matter where he hid, he could not completely shake the Mafia henchmen.
Steve realized that no matter what he did, the Mafia would eventually catch
up and kill him. No one would ever know that he was killed, nor would he
ever learn the truth about his past. With this realization, Steve decides
to put himself in the limelight again and enters The King of Iron Fist
At the end of The
King of Iron Fist Tournament 5, Steve Fox had destroyed the research institute
of the Mishima Zaibatsu, and finally settled a long-time feeling of resentment.
Steve was intent on returning to the world of the boxing again, but the
majority of major boxing meets are canceled by the war that broke out all
over the world. Steve, who knew no other trade than the boxing ring, had
effectively lost his job and his passion, and went into depression. Soon
after, he received an invitation to train together with Marshall
Law and Paul Phoenix. Steve, who liked the
idea of training in a martial art other than boxing, accepted.

It seems like Namco realized the
severe lack of Caucasian boxers in fighting games, and thus, Steve Fox was born. The
Tekken series was also strangely lacking a boxer up until Tekken 4, a void which Steve
proudly filled! Steve's debut in Tekken 4 wasn't half bad and he was definitely a fun character to
still needed some time to develop. In Tekken 5, Steve was given
many new moves and maneuvers, and easily became the most "dynamic," and in my
opinion, the most fun boxer
to use in any fighting game (or video game for that matter).
fight like just any traditional boxer... the strength of his design is
his unorthodox and dynamic/dirty boxing style. He's got plenty of low blows, and
even a few cheap kicks & foot stomps. A pro Tekken player can make
Steve look like a beast. ;) No doubt, Steve is a badass fighter, and a force to be
reckoned with in the Tekken series... "Hey you, wanna try me
yeah, he has some pretty impressive hair too.
