The Paley Center is thrilled to present the world premiere of a new documentary from the acclaimed ESPN series 30 for 30 that explores the two legendary fights between two distinctly different champions, Evander Holyfield and Mike Tyson. Director Stephen Cantor illuminates the journey of mild-mannered Holyfield as he attempted for years to take on the ferocious “Iron Mike.” By the time of their much hyped and oft delayed heavyweight title bout in 1996, Holyfield was considered past his prime, decidedly the underdog. This film brings to life one of the biggest upsets of all time, leading to one more bout, which was unlike any other fight. After the screening, Holyfield will discuss his two unforgettable fights with Tyson. Photo: Ramey Photo Agency 1997
