By the time he was 12 years old, Mike Tyson had been arrested over 38 times. By the time he was 20 years old – 20 years, four months, and 22 days, to be exact – Tyson had become the youngest heavyweight champion in boxing history, annihilating opponents with vicious knock-outs.
How did Tyson go from juvenile delinquent to champion boxer… not to mention convicted rapist, notorious ear-biter, quasi-professional pigeon racer, and unlikely Hangover co-star? We’ll learn the whole story in an upcoming Spike Lee joint appropriately called Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth, a filmed version of the one-man show Tyson debuted in Vegas and brought to Broadway in August 2012. It’s a tale of rage, ambition, and even the occasional joke – as when Tyson says something about making a “deal with the devil,” and a photo of Don King flashes onscreen.
