Exclusive Clip from Tyson

April 22nd, 2009 by Rebecca Harper Editor

Hulu has an exclusive clip from the upcoming documentary Tyson, a candid look at the rise and fall of former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson. Tyson holds nothing back in this film as he narrates his life story, from his childhood on the streets of Brooklyn to his training under Cus D’Amato, whom Tyson credits with teaching him the discipline and confidence he needed to become a champ, and then on to the more scandalous years: his divorce from TV star Robin Givens, his rape conviction, and the infamous bout against Evander Holyfield, where Tyson bit off a piece of his competitor’s ear.

Hulu spoke to director James Toback (The Pick-up Artist, Black and White) about the film and how his long-standing friendship with Tyson made it possible. You can read the interview in the discussions area just below the main page for the clip.
