In this corner of the ring: B.J. Minor!If you watched Mike, Hulu’s biopic series about notorious heavyweight champion Mike Tyson, you’ll definitely recognize this rising star.

In the miniseries, Minor plays teenage Tyson, bringing a warmth and humanity to the future “Baddest Man On The Planet” during the earliest days of his boxing career.Despite the fact that Minor’s been told they look like a young Tyson for years now, they never thought they’d have a shot at a role like this one.

As a nonbinary actor, they weren’t even sure they’d be considered for the part—one that leans into the boxer’s overtly masculine persona.
