Take a ringside seat for Tyson, based on the life story of the former World Heavyweight Champion. Born in poverty in Brooklyn, New York, Mike Tyson (Michael Jay White) has been arrested 38 times by the age of 13. In and out of detention centers, he's a young man going nowhere in life, until he is discovered in a small, dingy ring by legendary trainer Cus D'Amato (George C. Scott). Under D'Amato's care and training, Tyson soon becomes the most popular star of the boxing world, skyrocketing to grab the most coveted and prestigious prize in sports when he becomes boxing's World Heavyweight Champion. His rise is legendary - but so is his fall. From a multi-million dollar mansion to a small prison cell, through his turbulent relationships with wife Robin Givens and promoter Don King, the story of Mike Tyson is gripping and sensational. Tyson is as powerful and unforgettable as the knockout punch that made the man a star.
