Having led a roller coaster life full of ups and downs, Tyson’s story will now be replicated in a tv series, directed by award-winning filmmaker, Martin Scorsese.

Hollywood actor Jamie Foxx will reportedly play Tyson’s role, and he shared his first telephonic conversation with the boxer prior to shooting.

He said, “I said Mike, that’s who we play. That guy, the redemptive guy, who’s gone through everything. Who now is reflective, reflective on the fact that you can say you don’t have any more money. And that’s what makes you happy. That’s the American story”.
