Mike Tyson: I was just a kid when I first got to see Muhammad Ali. I saw the way people looked up to him, saw their smiling faces. And I said to myself 'That's what I wanna be, I wanna be champ of the world'.

"Iron Mike" becomes Iron Bars Tyson
31 July 2004 | by (Long Island, New York) – See all my reviews

I do feel a bit sad at the former champion's situation, and how he was led astray by fame and Wealth. It is a point,that if we desire to achieve greatness,we have to earn it by work.The bars are made by the man,Himself;This confused and misunderstood athlete is only to blame, because He refuses to change His World,His Life.In the movie, we see his tough exterior is rough,He does not trust or rely on the guidance of others.He does not move forward when tough times arise(such as death of trainer,surrogate mom)

There is an old fable of a "Phoenix rising out of the ashes it dwells in".As a role model for children, celebrities must dwell on past mistakes and learn what Society requires of them.I believe how they achieve a reputable name, is based on the impressions of others.
