Facing Tyson : Fifteen Fighters, Fifteen Stories Paperback
by Ted A. Kluck
'It's interesting that you put me in the league with those illustrious fighters [Muhammad Ali, Joe Louis, Jack Johnson], but I've proved since my career I've surpassed them as far as my popularity.
I'm the biggest fighter in the history of the sport.
If you don't believe it, check the cash register' - Mike Tyson.
Mike Tyson is one of the most famous and controversial sportsmen in history.
Despised and adored, he has been world heavyweight champion, armchair philosopher and convicted rapist.
In "Facing Tyson", sportswriter Ted A. Kluck finds out what it was like to step into the ring with Iron Mike.
Through a series of compelling interviews with the man himself and with opponents including Lennox Lewis, Kevin McBride and Evander Holyfield, he conveys the reality of coming face to face with the 'Baddest Man on the Planet'.
