Video: Mike Tyson tribute preview from Roots of Fight

via <a href=""></a>

Our fast friends at Roots of Fight, the combat sports brand that has created some amazing apparel capsules and stunning mini-docs featuring Muhammad Ali, Bruce Lee, Helio Gracie and more, looks to have signed up the former "Baddest Man on the Planet," and current vegan, "Iron" Mike Tyson.

Prior to his unfortunate fall from grace, "Kid Dynamite" was an absolute animal inside the ring; however, his troubles outside the ring marred an otherwise brilliant professional prizefighting career.

But make no mistake, in his prime, no one could touch him. Those, of course, who were brave enough to slip through the ropes and tempt fate.

The upcoming video tribute from Roots of Fight will celebrate and memorialize his electrifying accomplishments as one of the sport's most legendary fighters. In addition to a new clothing collection, Roots of Fight will also explore his pugilistic roots in an upcoming short film.

See the Roots of Fight "Tyson" teaser below.

Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather may dominate today's boxing headlines, but they'll never have their own Nintendo game or Fresh Prince song.
