Former boxing champ Mike Tyson says he and actor Jamie Foxx have discussed the two collaborating on a movie about Tyson’s life.

“Me and Jamie Foxx have been talking and he’s willing to take that role and portray me as Mike Tyson, doing my life story,” Tyson said during a conference call to promote his one-man show in Toronto, via the AP and USA TODAY Sports. ”I think he’s splendid because he’s really up to par. I think he would do a magnificent job.”

“I saw him the other night and we discussed it,” he added. “He doesn’t have the physicality but he will. He’s able to … get bulky, so he’s capable of doing it in the future.”
