HBO Pictures present Tyson, the story of the talented and troubled boxing champion. Born in poverty in Brooklyn, New York, arrested 38 times by age 13, Mike Tyson’s future was dark. Like many young men who turn to crime, he was sent to a juvenile center. His story might have spiraled down from there if it hadn’t been for his extraordinary talents. At age 14, he became the protégé of one of boxing’s legendary managers, Cus D’Amato. Through rigorous training and dedication, the course set for him turned. He became a champion. A hero. A sports’ icon. The greatest fighter since Ali. He was rich, married to a beautiful actress and living in luxury. The world was at his feet until he fell from an American dream into an American nightmare.
