Want to take on Mike Tyson?

LOS ANGELES, USA - Mike Tyson is making a comeback, and this time, in front of the camera. In recent years Tyson has been hit with countless scandals, media ire and public dislike, but like every public figure knows, there comes a moment when things need to change. Tyson has focused in the last few years on family life, supporting his wife and his children, and most recently on his movie career.

In 2008 Tyson , a documentary directed by James Toback premiered in Cannes and was a critical success, covering Mike s personal life and previous fights. Toback s previous films include two time Oscar winning Bugsy which he wrote, starring Warren Beatty. Film director Todd Phillips behind The Hangover , the huge 2009 comedy smash hit, recently spoke about casting Mike in the sequel at Spike TV's Guys Choice Awards.

Tyson will be hosting an exclusive in Game Challenge sponsored by Bringit at the Vanguard Night Club in Los Angeles on the 29th July.
