Mike Tyson is headed to Broadway!

Wait... can the world-famous boxer sing? Doesn't matter — It's not that kind of Broadway show!

Acclaimed director Spike Lee is bringing Mike's one-man show to the Great White Way, it was announced today.

The  show "Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth" will take center stage at the Longacre Theatre for just three nights, from July 31 to Aug. 5. It is a raw confessional about the highs and lows of the retired boxer's life.

"I'm very vulnerable, and I'm just telling you who I am and where I'm from and how this happened," Mike said at a news conference earlier today.

Mike became the youngest heavyweight champion ever in 1986 at the age of 20, but that was followed by a life of constant controversy that involved domestic violence and drug use, amongst others. And no one can forget when he bit off a piece of Evander Holyfield's ear during a boxing match.

Spike is encouraging people to give the show a chance saying, "It takes courage to get in the ring."

Details included in the show: his rocky marriage to Robin Givens, prison time, time spent in a psychiatric facility after becoming addicted to cocaine, and more topics.
