New York-A new ABC News documentary, premiered on Tuesday, looks inside boxing legend Mike Tyson’s climbs, crashes, and comebacks.

The new four-hour series, Mike Tyson: Knockout, is controversial, from his troubled beginnings to becoming the undisputed world champion, to the 1992 rape belief and his personal struggle. Peel off many layers of former heavyweight champions.

The two-part documentary features new interviews with actor and boxing enthusiast Rosie Perez, former president of HBO Sports Ross Greenburg, ESPN’s Jeremy Schaap, and Tyson’s inner circle.

It also includes the exclusive archive material from ABC News and a previously unbroadcast interview with Tyson.

“Mike Tyson: Knockout” shows how a rough kid from Brownsville, Brooklyn transformed into a sports icon.

But when his own problems led to his ring falling in and out, and then he bite part of Evander Holyfield’s ear, the now infamous battle continued. He was interrupted by the sport, but more than a decade later he opened his heart to Holyfield in Opla and made up for it.

The show culminates in previously unaired footage from an interview conducted by Byron Pitts of ABC News, where Tyson, now 54, is bitterly remorseful about today’s men.
