The legendary boxer is not overly excited about a show about his life that will air on Hulu. Recently, Tyson claimed that the streaming service had stolen his life story for the programme. Mike, a miniseries about the life and career of boxer Mike Tyson, was set to debut on Hulu on August 25. Tyson apparently didn’t approve of the series’ production, and he has frequently expressed disgust at his lack of participation. Tyson most recently claimed in a tweet that Hulu “stole” his tale.
Hulu stole my story. They’re Goliath and I’m David. Heads will roll for this.

“The dramatic ups and downs of Tyson’s boxing career and personal life – from being an adored global athlete to a pariah and back again,” according to the description of the series, which stars Trevante Rhodes as Tyson. Since it was announced, the boxer has had issues with the show. Tyson ripped Hulu in a letter to Entertainment Tonight for leveraging his life to earn money without his consent.

That is blatantly false “In his response to ET, Tyson remarked. “Years ago, my choice on life rights expired. No one from Hulu or their arrogant staff ever attempted to negotiate with this Black man. They still see me as nothing more than an n——r on the auction board, ready to be bought and sold for their own gain, regardless of my value or the welfare of my family.
“They claim that this tale explores a Black man. It resembles the exploitation of a Black man more. It is disgusting that Hulu believes that recruiting Black sacrificial lambs to serve as frontmen for their backdoor robbery will mask their traces. I’ll never forget how blatantly my dignity was violated.”
One of the greatest boxers to ever go into the ring was Tyson. He has a 50-6 career record with 44 knockouts and two no-contest victories. Tyson has a divisive reputation outside of the ring. Tyson was found guilty of rape in 1992 and given a six-year prison term plus four years of probation. He was released in 1995, and later that year, he returned to boxing.
