The Tekken 8 panel at SDCC will bring together real-world and entertainment fighters to discuss common themes and how combat techniques have evolved, changing how fights are represented in games.

Tekken 8 is bringing these never-before-seen legendary moves like Bryan Fury’s Kickboxing, Hwoarang’s Taekwondo and King’s unique style, a love letter to professional wrestling and Lucha Libre.

Attendees will share their professional career stories by looking at what led them to embrace combat and their experiences in fighting culture in games and entertainment. Known for their distinguished careers, Tyson and Woods bring a greater shine to the panel.
