Description[]

Jackson is a tall member of the Shadow Warriors who in the past was a heavyweight champion. What reason made him change his ways and put himself in service of such a vile organization is never explained, although he more than makes up to it by being one of their strongest members. He appears as the end boss of Mission 2, "The Airport", and then keeps appearing at least once per stage in following missions as a semi-regular enemy.

His attacks consist in a series of quick jabs that he finishes with a strong uppercut. As with most bosses (and being a former boxer himself), he tends to block a lot. Despite his size, he can be grabbed by the hair, although he will break free if he has enough health.

Even if it may not be too obvious, he can be arm-grabbed if the player blocks one of his jabs at the precise moment when he performs it, although there's arguably a benefit in doing so, as the player may sustain unnecessary damage while trying to pull the feat off.
