Def Jam Games Wiki

"Basement fight club where unproven fighters make a name for themselves"
—In-Game Description

The Foundation is a venue featured in Def Jam Fight For NY and Def Jam Fight for NY: The Takeover.


The Foundation is an appropriate name, because this is where you get your basic and maybe most important training in the game. Here you meet your first four real opponents, who will teach you the meaning of pain if you don't learn to fight with your brain as well as your body. This venue looks like someone's basement, and has numerous dangerous items. First, watch out for the crowd. It's riled up and wants to see you (or the other guy) use everything bottles, baseball bats, brooms, and pipes to spill liquid crimson. Aside from weapons, watch out for physical hazards in the Foundation that can benefit you or your opponents. The room has several wooden posts and two large floor speakers you can throw opponents into for some devastating moves. If the lighting doesn't do it for you, change it up by busting your opponent open on the two destructible droplights.
