Tyson on TV

Mike Tyson is going back to pay TV, where his fights were some of the biggest moneymakers in boxing history. Only this time the punches he’s throwing are verbal. The former heavyweight champion is teaming with director Spike Lee to bring Tyson’s one-man stage show to HBO later this year. The program was filmed on Broadway, where “Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth” ran last summer. Lee used 11 cameras to film the show that he described as part of Tyson’s legacy outside the ring. Tyson gives an unvarnished recounting of his life, including his years in prison, biting Evander Holyfield’s ear, his marriages and his drug use. –AP
