The creators of Hulu's Mike had no intention of portraying Mike Tyson as a hero or a villain.
Because the story revolves around his marriage to actor Robin Givens, the series is bound to elicit strong reactions.
After about a year of dating, Mike Givens married Tyson in February 1988.
As their marriage deteriorated, she publicly accused the boxing champion of emotional and physical abuse.
Tyson later admitted to punching Givens, but at the time he denied her claims of domestic violence and spousal abuse.
Givens filed for divorce in October 1988, a month after the ABC interview aired.
Their divorce was later finalized in February 1989.
