ESPN’s 30 for 30 documentary on Mike Tyson is available to stream on Kayo Sports just in time for his grand comeback on November 29.
Who can ever forget about that historic fight between Evander Holyfield and Mike Tyson back in 1996? Way before that match, Mike Tyson was already known to own the heavyweight division, casting a commanding shadow over boxing during the 80s and 90s. Evander Holyfield, on the other hand, was patiently waiting for his chance to earn that worldwide respect, which he knew he could never get until he defeated Tyson.
When the night of the match finally came, all eyes were on these legendary fighters as they met head on. Viewers witnessed not just one, but two of the sport’s most memorable fights. This is what ESPN’s 30 for 30: Chasing Tyson is all about.
What is Chasing Tyson about?
Evander Holyfield knew that it’s not in how he lost and recaptured the heavyweight crown that would define his boxing career, but in how he will stand up against Mike Tyson. 30 for 30: Chasing Tyson explores the years that Holyfield spent “chasing” after Tyson and arranging their first ever match. This documentary would also show how the fight turned out, making an indelible mark in the history of sports because of the two most memorable fights ever — but for very different reasons.
