I admit, I grew up loving and idolizing Mike Tyson for a fair amount of time. It sounds funny to say these days, but the fact is, in the late 80′s and early 90′s, he was a transcendent sports figure. He was to boxing what Michael Jordan was to basketball, before MJ was what he was to basketball. He was that big. He was what Tiger Woods is to golf. Anyway, Tyson eventually unraveled as most know and became the shell of the fighter and man that he once was. (Not that he was ever a stand up guy mind you, but still). There is a new documentary on Tyson’s life, titled Tyson, and after it kicked ass at Cannes, it is now showing at Sundance. An an interview with MTV, Tyson discusses the difficulty in watching himself on screen, and the “emotional quagmires” that show in the film. Yeah, he’s a punchline now, but I still remember what he was. When We Were Kings tackled Ali, but Tyson promises to be very interesting, I think. Here’s the video.
