Jamie Foxx Shows Off Bulked Up Physique for Upcoming Mike Tyson Biopic

Jamie Foxx is bulking up to play Mike Tyson.

Mike Tyson is one of the most iconic figures in sports. From 1986-1990 Mike Tyson terrorized boxing’s heavyweight division with ferocity and dynamite punching power. Tyson was the most feared man in boxing, hands down.

But after his loss to Buster Douglas, Mike Tyson’s career completely shifted. While he may have returned to his winning ways he was never quite the same. Personal demons and allegations of illegal activity weighed on Tyson throughout the rest of his career.

But Mike Tyson has since bounced back appearing in film and even having his own podcast. Tyson is the example of what a person can achieve through self-reflection and self-actualization.

The story of Mike Tyson is surely a compelling one. It’s exactly why Academy Award Winning actor Jamie Foxx has been pursuing a Tyson biopic for years. Now it appears that the time has finally come.

While many believed the Mike Tyson biopic was shelved, Jamie Foxx recently revealed that the film is still on. In a recent Instagram post Jamie Foxx revealed he’s been bulking up for the role and from what we can see he’s looking impressive.
