After a highly successful bout on Broadway, legendary boxer Mike Tyson has announced that he will be taking his acclaimed one-man show, Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth on a tour across the US and Canada. Directed by Academy Award nominee Spike Lee and produced by James L. Nederlander, the 10-week tour will begin in February, 2013. Aside from having been the undisputed heavyweight champion, Tyson holds the record as the youngest boxer to hold the WBC, WBA and IBF world heavyweight titles. He was also the first heavyweight boxer to hold all three titles simultaneously. Just last year, he was inducted into the Boxing Hall of Fame.
Tyson’s enduring mass appeal owes not only to his incomparable athleticism but to his huge personality and unrivaled showmanship as well. His ability to work a crowd extends far beyond the ring with a career in entertainment spanning blockbuster films (The Hangover and The Hangover 2), television (Animal Planet’s Taking on Tyson) and his own clothing company where T-shirts are available on his website (miketyson.com). Tyson is also the CEO of his own production company, Tyrannic Productions and currently has a few film projects in development. Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth is a rare, personal look inside the life and mind of one of the most feared men ever to wear the heavyweight crown. This riveting show goes beyond the headlines, behind the scenes and between the lines to deliver a must-see theatrical knockout! Mike Tyson’s upcoming tour will include a one-night performance at the River Rock Casino Resort on March 16, 2013.
