Tyson has reacted to the new TV series with a slew of angry social media posts and has been backed by many fans who agree he was treated unfairly, but not everyone is on his side.

“He’s a terrible manipulative bully. Every fighter that beat him, he couldn’t bully. Everyone he beat, he could bully them. If he can’t bully you, he’s a killer for him,” Warren recently told the Guardian.

“He’s a compelling character, and he’s one of those guys that makes you feel like he’s misunderstood but, when you walk into it, he is what he is, which is say a thug, a bully and a misogynist. He is very homophobic when he curses someone or yells at them.

“He was an incredibly exciting fighter – threatening, devastating – but it lasted a very short time and then he just p***** his career. He didn’t live the life he should have.

“You could sit with him right now and think this guy has been totally misunderstood, he’s a good guy. I’m telling you, he’s very manipulative.
