Mike Tyson: Boxer Mike Tyson slams Walt Disney firm Hulu over ‘Mike’ TV series. here is why


Legendary American boxer Mike Tyson does not seem happy these days with all the controversy surrounding the upcoming web series based on his life story. The fomer heavyweight champion has slammed Hulu once again after he realized they stole his life story, on which the upcoming documentary series
MIKE is based.

Tyson took to social media and slammed Hulu, the Walt Disney-owned streaming service company, captioning that it is the streaming version of the enslaver, and didn’t pay him for depicting his life story in the biopic-cum
TV series.

The boxer wrote on his Instagram wall that he does not support Hulu’s story about his life by wrongly depicting the dates, and they cannot sell him on the auction block like this.

It is the second time the boxer has lambasted Hulu in recent times. Earlier, he called on his fans and everyone to boycott Hulu for its devious tactics by desperately trying to pay UFC President Dana White to promote the TV series. However, according to him, White turned down the offer, honoring the friendship and dignity, which also earned respect from
Mike Tyson.

Talking about the Mike mini-series, it’s set to premiere on
Aug 25with US actors Trevante Rhodes and BJ Minor playing the lead character of Mike Tyson.

The 8-episode series will let the audience explore the troubled personal life and career of one of the biggest athletes.

Mike Tyson, aka Iron Mike, is not new to cinema as he has already appeared in several Hollywood films and in the latest Indian movie ‘Liger’ set to release on August 25, surprisingly on the same day as the release of Mike.

The heavyweight legend will play an extended cameo in the movie, produced by
Karan Johar and directed by
Telugu movie director
Puri Jagannath.
