Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield on 'Tribeca Talks' to discuss documentary 'Champs'

Larry Busacca

Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield sat down for Tribeca Talks to discuss the documentary Champs and more.

Former world heavyweight champions and (in)famous rivals Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield discussed the new documentary Champs, which features their stories and that of Bernard Hopkins, with the "Tribeca Talks" series. The interview was recorded for a podcast by WNYC, and now you can listen to the full show.

Note: There is adult language here, so NSFW.

Here are a few choice Tyson quotes from the talk:

"My kids don't have to fight. But if they did, I wouldn't want them to fight anybody like me."

"I am a better parent than my mother and my father and that's a victory in itself."

"I'm really friendly with the IRS these days. I like the IRS now." - on paying money to the agency in back taxes for years.

"I overshadowed a lot of guys during my time, but he is inconceivably the most competitive human being I ever competed against. It's easy to overlook that because he's such a smooth, kind-hearted guy." - on Evander Holyfield.
