The rise and fall of Mike Tyson
20 October 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a great movie. This movie goes into great detail of Mike Tyson life. This movie shows Mike Tyson at his best. It shows Mike Tyson every fight. His two best fights of the movie I think are Mike Tyson fighting Trevor Berbick for the WBC heavyweight championship of the world and his great fight with Micheal Spinks. It also goes into great detail of his rocky marriage with Robin Givens and his rape case. A must see for all Mike Tyson fans.
