From Morgan Campbell’s article for The New York Times:

That a new Mike Tyson project hits stores this summer should not surprise us.

The latest, simply titled “Mike Tyson,” arrives Sept. 6 and is a collection of photographs from Lori Grinker, who followed the fighter for more than a decade, beginning in 1980.

The collection includes pictures of some of Tyson’s best-known moments, including when the promoter Don King lifted him in celebration after he won his first title fight in 1986 and when he took a solitary, predawn run along the Atlantic City boardwalk in 1988.
