“Well, when you see me smash somebody’s skull, you enjoy it.” — Mike Tyson
Well, the former heavyweight boxing champ won’t be smashing any skulls (you know, hopefully) when he comes to perform his one-man show in Northeast Ohio, but, given Tyson’s colorful personality, you’d expect it to be an enjoyable night nonetheless.
“Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth Round 2” is slated to lace up its figurative boxing gloves March 8 at MGM Northfield Park – Center Stage.
Tyson, a news release from event promoter Live Nation reminds us, “is a larger-than-life legend both in and out of the ring. Tenacious, talented, and thrilling to watch, Tyson embodies the grit and electrifying excitement of the sport.”
More from the release:
With nicknames such as “Iron” Mike, Kid Dynamite, and The Baddest Man on the Planet, it’s no surprise that Tyson’s legacy is the stuff of a legend. Tyson was one of the most feared boxers in the ring, and one look at his resume proves he is one of boxing’s greats: Aside from having been the undisputed heavyweight champion, Tyson holds the record as the youngest boxer to win the WBC, WBA and IBF world heavyweight titles. He was the first heavyweight boxer to hold the WBA, WBC and IBF titles simultaneously. In 2011 Tyson was inducted into the Boxing Hall of Fame and in 2013 he was inaugurated into the Las Vegas Hall of Fame.
“Undisputed Truth,” the release says, is the “raw, no-holds-barred” story of his life as never told before. Promised are never-before-told stories of survival and triumph, as well as tragedy and public turmoil along with images, music and video.
Tyson lives in Las Vegas with his wife, Kiki, and their children, the release notes.
