"When you're a great finisher, you'll become popular. Joe Louis was a great finisher. So was Ray Robinson. Ray Leonard. They got a man in trouble and they threw everything they had at him. Bring him down"

Mike Tyson News: Tyson Says Jamie Foxx Can Play Him In Biopic

Posted on Tuesday, March 04, 2008 @ 15:37:00 UTC by tysonian
Mike Tyson says his life story is fit for the big screen - and he wants Jamie Foxx to play the title role.

The former champ told a Las Vegas newspaper that he has had talks with Foxx about a movie and predicted the flick will happen within two years.

"Jamie Foxx and I will be working together," Tyson told the Review-Journal. "He will play me in the film about my life. We already talked about it several times."

The legendary Iron Mike brawled his way up from the streets of Brownsville, Brooklyn, to win the heavyweight title in 1986 at age 20.

He battled demons all the way and retired in 2005.

He says his life story is a warning to kids to stay on the straight and narrow.

"I've seen the devil, and I don't want that," Tyson said.

Rumors about a Tyson movie starring Jamie Foxx were already reported in October 2005.
