Here's the first trailer... "I'm going to cry"
This is finally a story about Tyson that looks amazing. Mike had serious demons. I think you're going to see a really emotional documentary. He was so nice to me when I met him here at a gym in Vegas. I was only a kid but we all know the stories. What a sad fall from grace.
He looks like evander holyfield now.
Odd, he used to be eloquent and filled with all kinds of insights, not even bullshitting. Once you got past how crazy he sounded and looked, he always had something potent to say. Now he seems almost punch drunk. I hope the film garners some money for the guy and someone helps him back on the right track, maybe teach kids or to be a trainer. He sounds like a broken soul at this point. He gave his fans everything he had, someone should give a little back to him now that he is down and out
pretty sure his fans gave him $400mil.
he can suck my ass for squandering that much. he's his own man and shouldnt need handouts. Give McClellan a handout, not some shit head.
Mike's story is what happends when you give a child a million dollars. Or a gun. He was uneducated, lacked a moral/ethical foundation and went from street animal to ring animal. He had some realness to him and some genius somewhere inside...but due to the lack of guidance in his youth he evolved into this.
wow, did you smile?!! Thats awesome, were getting somewhere, finally found something that you dont hate !!!
Thx, love the tyson documentaries.
i never get sick of them. and this looks like the best one yet
Tyson is a fascinating guy. I know that his problems were largely self created but he is still a tragic character.
pics of his former mansion
this is up on the tractor now...watching it now
i've seen lots of tyson documentaries...this is one of the better ones.
yeah I guess you were one of the other 66 people that just got 100% on the tracker
I'm going to watch it later
weird... i just saw this thread and i'm watching an old tyson documentary right now
which one? Beyond the Glory: Mike tyson....is the best one out there.
i love tyson. will always be the greatest to me
oh this is out in theaters soon..... im so watching this.
the mike tyson story. it was ok.
my parents actually live right near where he used to in new york. i wish he still lived there. i'd ask him to come out and play.
I wonder how many people tried to tell him that he would eventually be broke if he continued to spend like he was. I guess its hard to see it coming when you have millions in the bank and Don King spending half of it for you.
best tyson documentary...
Very nice documentary. If you listen to what Teddy Atlas tells you he was quite an arrogant prick when he was young, but I think thats understandable when you give a young guy that much power.
You gotta empathise with his demons, and I really like the story of him standing up to protect his pigeons. Any guy that stands up for someone weaker than them has something going RIGHT in their head.
Anybody have any info on how I could get a hold of this?
