From beloved global athlete to pariah and back again – Mike Tyson's extraordinary life is one twisted tale. But who created Mike Tyson? Who discovered him aged 13, gave the shy kid an ego, and turned him into the youngest Heavyweight Champion of all time? And what part did the public play in the creation of the ring's ultimate baddie?
Creator/screenwriter Steven Rogers and the team behind the brilliant I, Tonya attempt to answer those questions in Mike. The show stars Trevante Rhodes (Moonlight) as Mike and is completely unauthorised, which has attracted the ire of the man himself...
"Hulu is the streaming version of the slave master," the boxer raged on Instagram. "Don’t let Hulu fool you. I don’t support their story about my life... It’s not 1822. It’s 2022. They stole my life story and didn’t pay me. To Hulu executives I’m just a ****** they can sell on the auction block."
Episodes 1 and 2 of Mike land on Hulu on 25th August. UK viewers will have to wait until 8th September to watch Mike on Disney Plus. Travelling outside the US? Make sure you know how to watch Mike from wherever you are.
