The latest ESPN ’30 for 30′ does to the dark side of Tyson in Vegas


It’s Tyson, in Vegas, with a hangover.

This one, called “One Night in Vegas,” directed by Reggie Rock Bythewood, debuts today at 5 p.m. on ESPN, the latest in the ESPN documentary series. The focus is on the night rapper Tupac Shakur was killed in Las Vegas — 14 years ago today.

It has do with sports how?

Mike Tyson fought Bruce Seldon at the MGM Grand earlier that night, and Tyson invited Tupac to watch it, then meet him afterward. That didn’t happen.

Among those interviewed in this piece is a cocktail party we’d sure like to attend: Al Sharpton, Maya Angelou, Mickey Rourke, Suge Knight, Nas and Seldon.
