Mike Tyson Aiming to Bring Las Vegas Show to Broadway
After the show opens at the MGM Grand, Tyson hopes to take it on tour and then to Broadway. "Tyson has always wanted to do a show on Broadway, and he feels this could be his chance."
The show will hit the road if it sells well in Las Vegas. So far, tickets are selling, but it is not sold out.
"Mike Tyson: UNDISPUTED TRUTH" will play at the MGM Grand from April 13-18.
Tyson was the undisputed heavyweight champion and holds the record as the youngest boxer to win the WBC, WBA and IBF world heavyweight titles. He won the WBC title when he was 20 years, 4 months and 22 days old, after defeating Trevor Berbick by a TKO in the second round. He was the first heavyweight boxer to hold the WBA, WBC and IBF titles simultaneously. Tyson is considered to have been one of the better heavyweight boxers of all time.
He is ranked #16 on Ring Magazine's list of 100 greatest punchers of all time. His early-round knockout victories over other skilled heavyweight champions, particularly Trevor Berbick, Larry Holmes, and Michael Spinks, cemented his reputation as one of the most feared men in the ring
Tyson has starred as himself in such films as The Hangover, Taking on Tyson, Entourage, Brothers, and more.
"Mike Tyson: UNDISPUTED TRUTH – Live on Stage" is the live, world premiere, one-man show starring legendary boxer Mike Tyson. Tyson will reveal untold stories, peeling back layers of tragedy and public turmoil while unfolding his tale of triumph and survival. In an up-close-and-personal setting featuring images, music and video, Tyson, in an intimate and theatrical setting, will share the stories of his life and experiences as a professional athlete and controversies in and out of the ring.
