Japan's Robo-One tournament for humanoid boxing robots took place last weekend, and Robots Dreams has posted a gallery of the tiny robots duking it out in the ring. Even better, they have full video of the winning match, where reigning champion GAROO knocked out challenger Gargoyle Mini. The Kinect-like control pioneered by Robo-One regular King Kizer isn't yet viable in these fights, but that doesn't make them any less entertaining or — dare we say — adorable.
