It’s been years since we’ve heard about the promise of a Mike Tyson biopic. Attached to that time and idea was actor, singer and comedian, Jamie Foxx to play as none other than the one and only Iron Mike Tyson. Well, Hollywood has a slow way of doing things, so it wasn’t until now that the decision to do the movie with Foxx as Tyson has been solid. Since then, Foxx has been seen on his Instagram account, beefing up to fit the Iron Mike mold. Take a look below and see for yourself:

The transformation begins… “FINDING MIKE”. It is no secret that I have been pursuing the @miketyson biopic for some time… people always ask me when is it going to happen?… things have finally lined up… A few months ago we started the journey… The first but biggest task is to transform the body… with a regiment of pull-ups dips and push-ups we are off to a pretty good start… we have a ways to go but God willing… yesterday on my good friends @markbirnbaum show. I shared these early pics of the process… like I said we have a ways to go… But I am prepared to get there! #swipeleft TYSON!
