Who is Mike Tyson?

Mike Tyson is a one-of-a kind, larger-than-life individual. With nicknames such as “Iron” Mike, Kid Dynamite, and The Baddest Man on the Planet, Tyson’s legacy is undisputed. One of the most feared boxers in the ring, his resume proves he is one of boxing’s greats: in addition to being the Undisputed Heavyweight Champion, Tyson holds the record as the youngest boxer to win the WBC, WBA and IBF world heavyweight titles.

Tyson’s enduring mass appeal owes not only to his incomparable athleticism, but also to his huge personality and unrivaled showmanship. His ability to work a crowd extends far beyond the ring – Tyson’s career in entertainment spans everything from blockbuster movies (The Hangover and The Hangover 2) to documentaries. In 2018, Mike began his newest venture as an entrepreneur, opening up Tyson Ranch where he works to create cannabis-based products like Copper Gel to help alleviate pain. In addition to Tyson Ranch, his podcast Hotboxin’ (on which Tyson talks with some of the world’s greatest sports legends, actors and more) has been listened to over 40 Million times. His expansive digital footprint reaches over 400 million people, and in 2019, Tyson accumulated over 1.4 billion impressions on social media.

A devoted husband and loving father, Tyson splits his time between Los Angeles and Las Vegas with his wife Kiki and their children.

Who is Cory Van Lew?

Cory Van Lew is an emerging star in the NFT, digital-art scene. Over the past year, Cory has amassed a large following and collector base with marquee pieces selling on Super Rare, Rarible, and OpenSea. Cory is known for his vibrant color palette featuring stunning shades of blue, pink, and orange/red tones that pop off the canvas in all of his pieces. Prior to the collaboration with Mike Tyson, Cory collaborated with Jake Paul on a 1-of-1 NFT piece, and also worked with Pac-Man Genies on their OpenSea drop this past Spring.
