Mike Tyson's Punchout!!

This is a quick and fun little graph of the classic Nintendo game, Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!.

The information for the graph comes directly from the Punchout Wiki. The graph is based off the NES console from 1987 as opposed to the earlier arcade games or the later release for the Wii.

I took the liberty of having Little Mac win all his fights by knockout. But then he went up against Iron Mike...

Notice that the dataset is read in painlessly via Google Docs as outlined here.

``` Query 1

LOAD CSV WITH HEADERS FROM 'https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/u/0/d/1Jr5ABoLMrUPQ3Vm9GTOzVmNucfnWq1ELTxv2WxOYOx0/export?format=csv&id=1Jr5ABoLMrUPQ3Vm9GTOzVmNucfnWq1ELTxv2WxOYOx0&gid=0' AS line MERGE (b1:boxer { boxer_id: line.boxer_id, name: line.name }) MERGE (b2:boxer {boxer_id: line.fought }) MERGE (f:fight { fight_id: line.fight_id, notes: line.notes, outcome: line.outcome }) //CREATE (b1)-[:AGAINST]->(b2) CREATE (b1)-[r:BOXER_STATUS { total_fights: line.total_fights, wins: line.wins, wins_by_KO: line.wins_by_KO, losses: line.losses, weight: line.weight, height: line.height, nationality: line.nationality, age: line.age, rank: line.rank } ]->(f);


Here's what it looks like:

MATCH (n) RETURN n mtpo

Here's some simple queries to practice with:

Query 1: What happened when Little Mac fought opponents ranked #1?

MATCH (result) <-[r:BOXER_STATUS]- (boxer) WHERE toInt(r.rank) = 1 RETURN result.outcome, result.notes

Query 2: Did Little Mac lose twice to anyone? Or win twice against anyone? START n=node(*), m=node(*) WHERE n.outcome=m.outcome AND ID(n) <ID(m) RETURN n, m
