4.0 out of 5 stars A definite knockout November 23, 2000
If you are looking for a video with alot of action and fight footage, then this is the video for you. This video goes step by step from day one through Tyson's career, even when he was a child. It consists of interviews with anyone who knew Tyson; friends, promoters, and trainers. This is the best hour to spend learning and answering all your questions about Mike Tyson. And the video hits the hi-lights of his fighting career along with some great power-punching and shows why Tyson was to be feared in his prime. An all around great video, worth every penny. This is the video any boxing fan will watch over and over again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting and exciting.. August 13, 2002
By Blurb
I realize that this is Mike Tyson's life story and it wasnt intended to have all of his fights on this short documentary, but damn it, it just was not enough. I actually analyze Tyson's fights and watch them over and over to see for weaknesses and strengths of his style. I just shake my head when I compare him to what he is now and his skills are totally eroded esp. after watching the Lewis fight. Tyson now couldnt hold a candle to the Tyson of the 80's. Overall, I learned alot about Tyson's life and theres a lot of things he did do wrong to make it where he's just not respected anymore (I'm not talking about his mischief with the fighters in the ring, like Hollyfield or biting Lewis's ankle). I'm talking about his personal life and the troubles hes been through. I also think that even if Mike did beat his wife I did not think she was a good person either (Neither one were). I think Mike tries to be a good person but he always finds himself back in trouble.
Side note on the Lewis fight: First, I feel that Mike was not in good shape and he weighed 20 lbs. heavier than usual. What is with overweight fighters fighting Lewis? David Tua weighed in 20 lbs heavier than Lewis too. Fat and slow is not going to beat a Lewis (even though I hate Lewis with a passion). In addition to being extremely slow against Lewis, Tyson did not have his usual dash speed against Lewis to get to the inside. Also, Mike did not move his head that much against a top fighter like Lewis (because he was so tired by round 3). Lewis moved into Mikes punches and jammed them effectively and reduced the power to 1/4. Mike could not find his range and was either lunging in too far away and missing wildy or he was jammed up and tied up by Lewis in close range.

5.0 out of 5 stars tyson in the ring April 14, 2009
I've just recently purchased 'Tyson' DVD (the James toback movie)

but of all the Tyson videos/Bio's out there, I must say this is probably the best pure boxing one. The fights/training footage from the catskill years on this video is something you won't find as much anywhere else. Although it is now dated but for any Tyson/boxing fan it doesn't really matter as the post late 80's/pre 90's Tyson became just a shell of his former glory self.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tyson was the greatest... December 20, 2006
I am a huge Tyson fan. I love watching his fights anytime, anywhere. I do agree entirely with what Blurb has said regarding the Lennox fight. Tyson was not only heavier and slower, but, since Tyson had fired Rooney a long time before, he had lost all he was taught from Cus. Also due to the fact he kept changing trainers which, in return, changed his fighting style. Slower, inable, loss of structure -- all of this was the build-up to the Buster fight and to the Lewis fight. If I were Mike, I'd be calling Rooney. But, I guess he doesn't want to be champ again.
