Video – Documentary on the man who retired Tyson, Kevin McBride, entitled “I Beat Mike Tyson”

I BEAT MIKE TYSON – (FULL FILM) from Joshua Z Weinstein on Vimeo.

In 2005, an unknown Irish boxer beat Mike Tyson in front of hundreds of thousands of people. Then he disappeared.

Filmmaker Joshua Z Weinstein rediscovers boxer Kevin McBride, raising his children in a gritty Boston suburb. Kevinʼs body is deteriorating, yet he compulsively continues to fight.

This lyrical film finds a boxer at the end of his career – engaging in the Sisyphean task that is his life.
