Former light middleweight champion, Paul Vaden, sent me this photo from Tuesday evening when he attended Mike Tyson’s one man show at the Balboa Theatre in downtown San Diego. MIKE TYSON: UNDISPUTED TRUTH is the rare, personal look inside the life and mind of one of the most feared men ever to wear the heavyweight crown. The one night stand, directed by Academy Award nominee Spike Lee, was at the Balboa Theatre in downtown San Diego. Here comes the sour grapes. If they had advertised the show properly, I’m certain they could have had a longer run than just one night.
As a theatre reviewer, Vaden mentioned he thought Tyson did a great job and the show left no stones unturned in the fighter's very colorful but troubling life.
