ESPN To Air Documentary About Tupac Murder & His Friendship With Mike Tyson

 

ESPN Films has announced that they will feature a documentary surrounding the night that Tupac was murdered in Las Vegas.

The documentary entitled “One Night in Vegas” will highlight the night of September 7th, 1996, the evening Tupac Shakur attended the Mike Tyson Vs. Bruce Seldon fight.

The documentary also plans to showcase the friendship between Mike Tyson and Tupac Shakur, who were supposed to attend the after party together to celebrate Tyson’s first round “knockout” of Bruce Seldon.

“One Night in Vegas”, which is a part of ESPN’s popular 30 for 30 series, was directed by Reggie “Rock” Bythewood (Notorious) with Mike Tyson’s full cooperation.

The series features stories on sports legends and their rise to fame. This season will also feature the stories on legends Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova (Unmatched), George M. Steinbrenner (The House of Steinbrenner) and Steve Nash (Into the Wind).

ESPN has tapped filmmakers like Ron Shelton, John Singleton, Steve Nash and Alex Gibney to create the Fall series of 30 for 30.

The documentary is scheduled to air on the 14-year anniversary of Tupac’s shooting, September 7, 2010.
