Tonight on HBO is the debut of Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth. Tyson and legendary filmmaker Spike Lee bring Tyson’s hit one-man stage show to TV in a raw, honest, powerful style that is full of humor. The film features “Iron Mike” recounting his life’s highs and lows in his signature candid style.
Over the course of 90 riveting minutes, Tyson opens up about his troubled Brooklyn youth, landmark boxing career, key influences in his life, personal and professional controversies, time in prison, loss of family members and, most recently, his rehabilitation and redemption, forged by sobriety and a renewed commitment to family life.
You may think you know Mike Tyson’s life story. Youngest ever heavyweight boxing champion in the history of the sport. Larger than life bad boy outside the ring. Run-ins with haters, players, promoters, women, and ultimately, himself.
Age has provided Tyson some badly needed perspective. Sobriety and clean living have helped, though he still fights to stay on the wagon as he’s recently admitted. He shares his life with his fans in this entertaining one-man show.
Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth debuts tonight at 8 p.m. ET on HBO.
