"Whatever Happened to Tyrell Biggs?" Kickstarter Campaign

Tyrell Biggs, a standout athlete in high school, takes up boxing and wins Olympic Gold and his first 15 pro fights. But there's a dark side to Biggs, one that includes a history of drug and alcohol abuse. Following a devastating loss in his title fight with Tyson, Biggs falls into obscurity, then must slowly try to rebuild his life.

Were drugs his downfall - the addiction he could never really overcome? Did his management take him too far too fast, throwing himin too soon against the brutal and seemingly indestructible Mike Tyson? What was the long-term damage inflicted on him by the savage beating he endured at the hands of Tyson and did he ever really recover from it? And how does one explain the catastrophically downward spiral of his career as he subsequently loses against a series of opponents far less skilled than he?


Tyrell's sudden appearance in a West Philadelphia Gym where he is unknown to a group of young after school boxing hopefuls is where the story reignites. Biggs's former managers and trainers, as well as referees, boxing historians, friends and opponents, all have strong opinions about the character of the man, the skills he possessed and the promise that was never fulfilled. His sudden fall from grace, his loss of heart and his struggle make for a gut-wrenching tale.
