Release Date: April 24 (limited)

Tyson is surprisingly reflective and has a peculiar command of idioms, for example, saying he owes his success to “the art of skulduggery,” a skill he later admits was underutilized in his first marriage. I guess he means he could’ve used his art to hide indiscretions, but that was the old Tyson. In Behind the Music fashion, he’s turned his life around so that, nowadays, his atrocious view of women leaks out only occasionally. He doesn’t know where he got gonorrhea but it must have been “from a prostitute or a very filthy young lady,” he explains, and Toback doesn’t point out the irony. Sometimes there’s no need.
