TV show “Mike” tells about the formation of the infamous professional boxer Mike Tyson. A cruel childhood left its mark on him, and the guy had to defend his own interests through fights. Black blocks never pleased the boyish eye, and Mike always wanted to escape from the poverty surrounding him. But leaving there, he did not know the most important thing…
“Mike ss 2”: release date, announcement
The continuation of the biographical drama “Mike” has not been officially announced. Judging by the ratings of TV shows based on real events, viewers are very fond of such pictures. Take the sports TV series “Young Rock“, for example, which is about the popular wrestler and actor Dwayne Johnson – season 3 will be released in November 2022! So is the picture “Mike” waiting for a similar success? Probably not. One should not forget about the scandal, since Mike Tyson was against the airing of a TV series about his life.
An amazing world opens before the eyes of the viewer — the world through the eyes of a little boy, forced to change one place of residence after another. As a child, his mother was informed that Mike was mentally retarded, after which the woman stopped placing false hopes on him, but she never stopped loving him. The boy himself grew up a plump and inactive child.
Mike was constantly beaten and there was no point in defending himself, because the more you resist, the more bruises you bring home. The boy adored pigeons and considered them almost a miracle of nature. Once, an unfamiliar tomboy tore off a bird’s head in front of Mike. Then the first duel took place, in which the little defender won.
Feeling impunity for the deed, Mike contacted the older guys. They traded in theft. At first, the thefts were small: things, light objects, and everything that can be easily stolen from another house. At this time, the Tyson family was so impoverished that the mother had to earn extra money by prostitution in order to feed the children and educate them.
Mike’s brother and sister were able to find a worthy place in life. Mike was first caught stealing when he was 10. His judgments were childish, but life proved to him daily that he could not rely on anyone but himself. As he got older, Tyson made a lot of efforts to get to a good coach. The guy from the very first days was able to show his best side.
Mike Tyson’s career is a minefield where adventure never ends. Frequent breakdowns, treatment in a drug rehabilitation clinic — it was not easy for Mike to regain his former glory. He had to deal with his ailments on his own, to seek solace in fleeting relationships. He simply did not know and could not know the good life.
Tyson travels the world, telling the story of his life. Realizing his mistakes, he does not hesitate to talk about it to others. Now he stands in front of the audience and tells the facts from his biography. Will he be able to rely on his former greatness when he talks about the events of the past days, or will his actions remain incomprehensible to the public?..
