OK so all I see on the web is that Kid Quick is easier than Glass Joe and should go down in 0:30-1:00. I do not get this. Maybe I'm an R-tard here but I have never had it easy with this guy.

 

Punch-Out Strategy wiki page:

 

 

Alternate method: This guy is actually the easiest person to beat in the game. Throw a right to his head and it will force him to retaliate with a hook. Dodge to the right and then follow with 3 left jabs to the face. Repeat this pattern and he goes down in about 30 seconds. 2 left jabs and a right to the face will force the hook retaliation, speeding up this process if Quick is not as full strength. This is touched on above, but with this method you are forcing him to throw a hook at you vs waiting for him to do it on his own.

 

Punch-Out FANDOM wiki page:

 

 

In the arcade version of Punch-Out!!, the trick to knocking out Kid Quick is to do the pattern "left, left, right, right" to his head. On the last right, he will throw a low body punch, which requires the player to dodge it and repeat.

 

These don't ever give me love. When I have beaten him it has been pure luck. I play in MAME, on my Switch and on actual hardware when I go to Funspot. This guy is always a pain in my ass. How does everyone beat him so easily?

The last paragraph in the first link is how I've always done it, but it takes way longer than the 30 seconds they claim.

Just watch a long play of it to get some idea.. e.g.  https://www.youtube....oeVpdV0#t=3m42s  it looks like initially you throw a right punch to the head which he dodges, then you dodge his punch, then 3x to the head. Repeat?

 

I tend to prefer the standard longplays over the "speed runs" which lots of times use tricks, etc.

I didn't read the above explanations.  The method that has ALWAYS worked for me is:

 

Throw rights only.  Occasionally dodge right when he's punching.  Otherwise keep throwing rights.  Nothing else.

Yup, that's pretty much it.  Maybe it does only take 30 seconds or so...  My gametime perception must be off.  :)
