Story (in the Fatal Fury Saga)[edit]

FF Michael.png

Born in the slums, Michael Max became a talented heavyweight boxer. He attempted to be the greatest in the sport, but corrupted his own career when he was enticed with money and women. Falling from grace and into misery, Michael headed to Southtown and using his hatred and frustration for the situation to fuel him and his constant battling of Southown thugs, Michael constantly trained to recapture what he had.

He entered the King of Fighters tournament held by Geese Howard in Fatal Fury believing his powerful fists and grueling training will help him win. Sadly, all his training was rendered sub par by the Lonely Wolves (Terry Bogard, his brother Andy and Muay Thai champ Joe Higashi) and he was easily beaten.

Afterwards, Michael was never seen again. He allegedly retired from fighting for good never to do battle again.
