Mickey Rogers (ミッキー・ロジャース) is a boxer whose career was destroyed when he accidentally killed an opponent in the ring.
Story (in the Art of Fighting Series)
Mickey 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.
In AOF 1, Mickey is a small time hood who works for Mr. Big so that he can get money as a street hustler. In AOF 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.
Mickey's Burning Upper is similar to Geese Howard's Reppuken.
In AOF2, Mickey is modeled after both Cassius "Muhammad Ali" Clay by appearance, and also Michael "Iron Mike" Tyson by likenesses. Both being real-world champion prize fighters.
