reasonably well told story of the boxers life.
14 March 2000 | by legionxx10See all my reviews

This documentary charts the life of Mike Tyson, from when he was born, to when he was convicted of rape. Often slow paced, but nonetheless fairly accurate portrayal of the highs and lows in his life. Contains some interesting, if not rare, footage of Mike boxing at a young age.
