Former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson will debut his one-man Broadway show, "Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth," next week. But that won't be his first time on Broadway. As he reveals in this Playbill video, he was once arrested on that very street. That led to a stint in a detention center in the Bronx, where Tyson met his mentor, the man who would lead him to worldwide fame.
Now, Tyson is back where it all began. His new show, directed by Spike Lee, is based on a six-night stint he did with a similar script in Las Vegas. This time, though, the lights are brighter and the stage is bigger.
Check out some behind-the-scenes footage of Tyson and Lee preparing for the big night.
Tyson looks almost as natural on the stage as he did in the ring. And if his performance is anywhere as good as it was in The Hangover, he should draw rave reviews.
