Mike Tyson and Spike Lee in Rehearsal for Undisputed Truth

Known as "Iron Mike" and "The Baddest Man on the Planet," boxer Mike Tyson made history in the ring as the youngest world champion ever when he won the undisputed heavyweight title at 20 years old. Along with his athletic skill, his tumultuous life also put him in the public eye with marital, financial and legal troubles derailing his fight career. Here, Brooklyn-born Tyson readies to take the stage in his confessional one-man show Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth alongside director Spike Lee as they rehearse for the limited-run Broadway engagement at the Longacre Theatre.
