The Peak Performances of Mike Tyson
Marc Axelrod | Potter, Wi USA | 12/24/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a four and half hour documentary of the prime years of Mike Tyson. You are ringside for 19 of Mike Tyson's early fights, plus highlights of other matches. Watch him blast out a select group of tomato cans, as well as his most satisfying victories over top flight competition such as Larry Holmes and Frank Bruno.

Bert Randolph Sugar, Teddy Atlas, George Chuvalo, Michael Moorer, and the aforementioned Holmes provide expert commentary on the fights and times of Mike Tyson.

Teddy Atlas ran the gym that Tyson trained at during his formative years, and he gives some fascinating insights into Mike's personal life and how Cus often allowed Tyson to get away with misbehavior on account of his great talent. He seems to have a better understanding of what makes Mike tick than anyone else.

It is a pleasure to own Tyson's complete fights against Berbick, Holmes, Bruno, Ferguson, and Douglas, though one may wish the set included footage of his bouts with Biggs and Pinklon Thomas and Tony Tucker.

But it is hard to argue with what is here and it makes you hope that the other ESPN Ringside telecasts will be released, particularly the two Muhammad Ali documentaries.

There are also two bonus features, a series of interviews that were conducted with Tyson through the years and a short film on the making of ESPN Ringside. This release is well worth the money for Tyson fans."
Mike Tyson--A compilation !

"This DVD comes from an ESPN Classics 6 hour television show! It starts at the beginning and goes through his early career fight-by-fight. The fights are shown in their entirety (though obviously much is cut out--it goes straight to the bell and without any corner talk, just bell, ding, bell, ko). I also didn't realize Michael Buffer was still shouting his trademark saying back in 1985! A good add to any Tyson fan's collection. The only problem with this video is that it comes from the TV show--and ESPN actually shows a 'coming up' right up to the point where the commercials would roll. That wouldn't necessarily be a problem, but for some reason ESPN felt it was important to show you the most exciting parts of the next 20 minutes--the knockout punches, the bloodied opponents, the referee making the 10-count! So remember, when it cut's to the 'coming up' part, cover your eyes and lower the volume!"
Is there a second volume to this??!

"This dvd is for adrenaline junkies. You are on the edge of your seat, waiting for a huge Tyson knockout punch every fight. It has 19 fights, the actual fights, and is nice to have if you have nothing to do for a day."
