Former Boxing Champion Mike Tyson arrived at the Cannes Film Festival with his family in tow for the unveiling of his new film titled ‘Tyson’. The film,which documents the Boxer’s rise and fall over the years,premiered on Friday (May 16).

A sympathetic portrayal of heavyweight boxer Mike Tyson brought one of the most fearsome and controversial fighters in the sport’s history to the red carpet at the Cannes film festival.

Selecting from hours of documentary footage and mixing fight sequences with interviews and photographs, director James Toback tells the story of the boxer’s climb from his impoverished childhood to the pinnacle of his sport and dramatic fall.

Like Serbian director Emir Kusturica’s documentary on soccer legend Diego Maradona, which is showing out of competition next week, “Tyson” paints the picture of a charismatic but troubled champion whose image transcended his own sport.

“In the course of the film, Tyson moves from someone you might think you’d want to steer well clear of to a man you might actually want to meet and speak with, which is a significant accomplishment,” trade paper Variety said in its review.

Tyson himself, his face tattooed and looking significantly heavier in a grey suit than in the days of his prime, mounted the red carpet at the film’s opening night to loud applause from onlookers and festival-goers. READ MORE

In all,Tyson has six children: Gena, Mikey, Rayna, Amir, Miguel, and Exodus. Rayna and Amir are from his second wife and it is documented that the  rest of his children are from several different women.(Wikipedia)

  1. is this mickey or gena in this pic?
    gene isnt mike daughter. monica already had had her with dc drug dealerEugen byrd.
    d’amato too isnt mike’s biological daughter, not sure if he still raised him/claimed him.
    mike’s kids are Mickey, Rayna, Amir, Miguel, Exodus, Milan and Morocco.

  2. WELL I LOVE MR. TYSON FOR THE FIGHTER HE HAS BE COME. HE WAS AND IS THE BEST BOXER IN HIS CLASS THAT I EVER SEEN SINCE THE GREAT ALI. I AM GLAD I GOT THE CHANCE TO MEET HIM EVEN IF HE WON’T KNOW WHO I AM BUT THAT’S OK BECAUSE IT WAS MY GOAL TO MEET HIM NOT HIS GOAL TO MEET ME. I WILL MISS HIM AS A FIGHTER AND WOULD HAVE LOVED TO HAVE HAD THE CHANCE TO KNOW HIM FOR MYSELF AS A MAN, NOT WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT HIM. MY HEART AND SOUL GO’S OUT TO HIM AND HIS FAMILY FOR THE LOST OF HIS BABY GIRL, NO ONE SHOULD EVER HAVE TO LAY THIER CHILD TO REST… NO ONE!! FOR THOSE PEOPLE WHO GOT ALOT OF BAD THINGS TO SAY ABOUT MR. TYSON YOU SHOULD LOOK AT YOUR LIFE FIRST BEFORE YOU OPEN YOUR BIG MOUTH BECAUSE ALL OF US WISH WE COULD DO HALF OF WHAT HE HAS DONE IN HIS LIFE. TO GO FROM RAGS TO RICHIES, MOST OF US WOULD DIE BEFORE THAT HAPPENS AND IF SOME OF US DO MAKE IT YOU MOST LIKELY WON’T BE ON TOP FOR LONG ANYWAY THINK ABOUT THAT BEFORE YOU START TO TALK ABOUT THE RICH WHO HAS FALLEN. BYE THE WAY HE STILL HAS MORE MONEY THEN THE ONES WHO’S RUNNING THEIR MOUTHS LIKE ALEXANDER DOMBROFF.

  3. First of all Monica has only two children with Mike Tyson. Their names are Amir and Rayna.I feel very sorry for him because he appears to be very sad and lonely.

    I believe that his children by his second wife will be exceptional. Monica is brilliant and her children are very smart. I do not know what you tell children when their father is Mike Tyson.

    When I saw him on Oprah he really was tyring to be normal (What ever that means) I think he is very scattered and shattered. I can only hope that he gets any help he may need.

    God Bless his daughter Exodus and may God shine his eternal light upon her.

  4. My heart goes out to the Tyson family … it’s just not fair when a child leaves this earth before their parents. Mr. Tyson is my neighbor here in Arizona-town and I have seen Exodus on many occasions. She was a lovely and inquisitive little girl. Her name certainly proved to be prophetic. After all, God delivered her twice.
