Mike Tyson has never backed down from a fight, and the former heavyweight champion of the world is now picking a battle of a different variety.

Streaming service Hulu will premiere “Mike” on August 25 – nearly a year and a half after Tyson blasted the decision to greenlight the show as "tone-deaf cultural misappropriation."

Over the weekend, Iron Mike doubled down on his disdain toward Hulu. 

“Don’t let Hulu fool you. I don’t support their story about my life. It’s not 1822. It’s 2022. They stole my life story and didn’t pay me. To Hulu executives, I’m just a n----- they can sell on the auction block,” Tyson wrote on social media. 

“Hulu tried to desperately pay my brother [UFC president] Dana White millions without offering me a dollar to promote their slave master take over story about my life. He turned it down because he honors friendship and treating people with dignity. I’ll never forget what he did for me just like I’ll never forget what Hulu stole from me.

“Hulu stole my story. They’re Goliath and I’m David. Heads will roll for this.

“Hulu is the streaming version of the slave master. They stole my story and didn’t pay me.

“Hulu’s model of stealing life rights of celebrities is egregiously greedy.

“Someone should get fired from Hulu. Producers were lying to my friends saying I supported the unauthorized series about my life.” 

The series stars Trevante Rhodes. Other cast members include Russell Hornsby, Harvey Keitel, Laura Harrier, and Li Eubanks.

Tyson has been working on a separate biopic in recent years documenting his life with actor Jamie Foxx.
