Tyson brings the punch out to Boston

The thought of Mike Tyson having a stage show is still hard for many people to grasp. The extent of “Iron” Mike’s entertainment outside of the ring has been in his voice, recent comedic acting roles and as the final boss in the greatest boxing videogame of all time - Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out.

However, “Undisputed Truth,” Tyson’s one man show has become a major hit since premiering in Vegas and then again when it went to New York for a week-long run. Now, a 10-week, 35-city tour will be happening, starting in mid-February, that will bring the former heavyweight champion to Boston’s Wang Theater on May 4.

The show features Tyson on stage telling stories from his life. His childhood, time in the ring, Don King, Robin Givens and Brad Pitt, just to name a few.

This week, Tyson has been making the media rounds, talking about the show. One of the interviews was with Rich Shertenlieb of 98.5 the Sports Hub.

During the conversation, he mentioned that he does not believe he has control over the show. Some stories he thinks are serious get laughs and some with jokes are taken quietly by the audience. Every show is a little different.

Tickets for the show went on sale today, starting at $80 for general admission, $304 for a meet and greet with Tyson and $504 for a super meet and greet.
