Tyson: 7 out of 10.
In 1993, I recorded a Tyson documentary entitled "Fallen Champ". I can't tell you how many times I watched that doc. Before the Buster Douglas fight, I thought Tyson was invincible. That was his 38th fight.
We all know what happened next. Buster Douglas, a rape conviction, jail time, the Holyfield fights and this sour conclusion. Through all the drama and mayhem, Tyson always came across as a rather sympathetic figure. This documentary would be exhibit A, and it's mainly just Mike Tyson speaking to the camera.
It's good, but it's not as good as I remember "Fallen Champ" being. I actually think I still have the old VHS cassette that's hosting "Fallen Champ". I'm going to go see if I can dig it up.
