Friday Night ‘Fro: Mike Tyson Documentary


Mike Tyson is one of the most misunderstood figures in sports (And definitely in boxing). Not to say he didn’t help that; it was a self destruction that the whole world watched from the front row. When I do think about Tyson, I try not to remember the jail time, the ear biting, or even the last few fights in his career. I try remember the beast that was Iron Mike Tyson (Example). So when I heard that a documentary about Tyson direct by James Toback got a standing ovation at last year’s Cannes Film Festival, I was interested. After finally watching it earlier this week, I released how much self hate Tyson actually has. Maybe this is Mike Tyson’s chance to be recognized for his career instead of being branded a monster. Did you hear Nas’ “Legendary” off The Nigger Tape or seen the cover of Fight Night Round 4? What a way to bring back Friday Night ‘Fro huh? Tyson. Enjoy. (Updated: The last one was taken down. Here’s another…)
