Mike Tyson-Undisputed Truth

Thu Nov 21, 2013 8:20 pm

If there's any boxing fans on the forum (I think there's a few) do yourself a favour and pick up Mike Tyson's bio Undisputed Truth.I've just finished reading it and it's a very,very honest account of his life,the ups and the downs and there are more downs than I thought.
I thought it would be a book where he bares his soul and I wasn't disappointed,I'd recommend it to anyone.

It is Ken,when you get to the end he really opens up about his state of mind,Tyson is ,now,so self aware and isn't afraid to open his past up to the reader.I found it fascinating,I couldn't put it down.

Ken-Hope your enjoying the Tyson book.I don't know whether your interested but I was in my local £land the other day and they've got a boxing book in there,it's called Beautiful Brutality by Adam Smith,he's Sky sports head of boxing and the books about the families behind boxing's biggest names.I saw it in Waterstones last week for £15 so I've got myself a bargain!
