- "Lethal melee weapon. Apply to opponents face; repeat."
- — In-game description
The Prizefighters are a melee weapon in Call of Duty: Black Ops III. They are a pair of boxing gloves that the player can use on each hand, similarly to the Brass Knuckles. The weapon was released for everyone for free on August 31st, 2016, after the entire Call of Duty community completed the "Road to Champs" community contract by playing a total of 350,000,000 matches before September 2nd, 2016.
Unlike the Combat Knife, right-clicking with the Prizefighters will throw a right hook instead of performing some sort of guard. This means the player can attack with either their primary fire, secondary fire or melee key. Using primary fire will throw a left double-jab.
- When equipped as the starting weapon at the beginning of a match or picked up during a match, the player will perform a knocking gesture with the left glove accompanied by the sound of a bell similar to that of the start of a boxing match.
- While wielding this, the character's arms appear to have sleeves, as if on a jacket. This is a reference to the popular boxing movie, Rocky.
