“I have been wanting to tell my story for a long time,” Tyson said in a statement. “The excitement from fans, with the recent launch of Legends League and my return to the ring, now seems like the perfect moment. I look forward to collaborating with Martin, Antoine, Jamie and the entire creative team to bring the audience a series I look forward. It not only reflects my professional and personal journey but also inspires and entertains me. “
