And this mesmerising documentary from the 30 for 30 series, exploring Evander Holyfield’s quest to get Mike Tyson in the ring, proves this fact. Find out how to stream ESPN’s Chasing Tyson right here.
Chasing Tyson TV Preview
Evander Holyfield dominated the Cruiserweight division before stepping up to the Heavyweight class. But he knew that the only way he would gain respect was to take on a certain ‘Iron’ Mike Tyson. This documentary follows Holyfield’s attempts to get Tyson in the ring and create one of the biggest fights of the century.
Holyfield spent most of his career trying to prove himself to others. Virtually everyone dismissed his achievements as he had never gone toe-to-toe with a man bigger than boxing in the US. In 1996, after Tyson had spent time in prison and Holyfield won and lost world title fights – he got the chance. And the rest, so they say, is history.
