The boxer, 48, who was the youngest heavyweight champion at 20, also said Raging Bull director Martin Scorsese, would be involved. Tyson said: "Me and Jamie Foxx are in discussion, and we gonna do it.

"Within a year to 18 months, we're going to do the Mike Tyson story and he's going to portray me, and now they have this new animation; because you know Jamie's pretty much my age so he can't portray me but they have this new system."

The film may be titled Champion.
