Tyson (R1/US BD) in August - Artwork added

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment have announced the US DVD and Blu-ray Disc release of Tyson on 18th August 2009. This portrait of the former heavyweight champion from director James Toback is narrated by the champ himself. The film tells the story of a young boy who rose from the most impoverished circumstances, soared to unlimited heights, then -- like a character in a classical tragedy -- was destroyed by his own arrogance and hubris.
