Mike is a boxer who entered the first World Warrior tournament. He enters in the first World Warrior Tournament simply to make some money and also help his little sister in the hospital. Unfortunately, Mike was defeated by Ryu int he tournament and hasn't been seen since.

Due to the fact that Balrog's name is also "Mike" in Japan, fans were lead to believe that Mike and Balrog are the same person. However, the official artbook All About Capcom confirms that Mike is not the same person as Balrog. Some fans speculate that Mike is the African-American fighter seen in the SF2 intro who ends up getting punched by the blond fighter - whom some think could be Joe).

Yes... it's true. The first boxer of the Street Fighter series was pretty much a flop design. Mike sure wasn't trying to win any fashion awards.... A red t-shirt, jeans and tennis shoes? That's it? lol. Mike of SF1 is no doubt one of the most bland and generic boxer designs of all time. He also might have the best creepy face of all time! :o
