Mike Tyson in Beijing

It took quite some time and effort before Mike Tyson finally agreed to take the trip from Los Angeles to Beijing. On September 25th, he arrived together with an entourage to participate in the Chinese film “The Corner”. The same film that Mikkel Kessler also plays a significant role. Unlike Mikkel Kessler, Mike Tyson performs without boxing gloves in a role as the young main character’s greatest fan and mentor.

Lifelong Learning established both the participation of Mikkel Kessler and Mike Tyson. The woman behind the idea is Veronica Zhong, who participated in the Danish-Chinese film talent camp in Odense in 2017. Relationships are priceless and anything can be done – both with and without boxing gloves.

The film will premiere in 2019.
