Mike Tyson Documentary (Full)

So I finished watching the Mike Tyson documentary last night with my dude Briinx and Frodo Da Don. The auto biopic of one of boxings greatest controversy filled athletes shows so many layers of “Iron Mike” Tyson. Listening to Mike talk about his rough upbringings filled me with empathy for him. This was clearly a young man who was a gentle giant who ended up on a road to being a product of his environment. After being saved by his trainer the late Cus D’Amato, his life soon turned around. While Mikes story is well known it becomes more colorful when you hear it from the man himself. The pride, pain, happiness and disappointment coming from his gives me a new found respect for tone of the greatest boxers to ever step in the ring. It makes me realize how easy we (Black) toss our heroes to the side when they stumble. At the end of the day they are onle extraordinary to some degree. Enough of my yapping my Dukes, enjoy the film.

    this documentary was crazy. I couldnt stop watching. Definitely one of the illest sports related documentaries I’ve ever seen. It puts the whole theme of Boxers as modern day gladiators into perspective. Damn shame Cus never got to see him get to the top. I think things wouldve turned out differently for Mike had he had Cus there thru most of his life.

    Just been blessed with this doc.(good lookin Evil Genius), which I look forward to watching soon. Knowing what I do about Mike’s career, it seems that the irony of his life is that the people who could have looked out for his best interest are all the ones he pushed away – His championship trainer ROONEY, and his wife ROBIN GIVENS (she wouldnt have let him get ripped off).
