I Beat Mike Tyson is set to debut at the Canadian Film Festival which begins on April 26. The film tells the story of relatively unknown boxer Kevin McBride when he stepped into the ring to beat Mike Tyson by sixth round TKO on June 11, 2005. Director Josh Weinstein documents McBride’s career since, one that includes a long string of heartache and bad decisions completely derailed his momentum. The short film runs for 13 minutes and Weinstein describes the effort as a “lyrical film” about a boxer “engaging in the Sisyphean task that is his life.”
