Biography

Mike Tyson 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.

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 legends. 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, as well as the first to hold these titles simultaneously. In 2011, he was also inducted into the Boxing Hall of Fame and in March 2012, into the WWE Hall of Fame.

Tyson’s ability to work a crowd extends far beyond the ring—his career in entertainment spans blockbuster movies (The Hangover and The Hangover 2), television (Animal Planet’s Taking on Tyson), and his own clothing company. Tyson is also the CEO of his own production company, Tyrannic Productions, and currently has a few film projects in development.

Now Tyson is taking his talent to the stage with an extraordinary one-man show titled “Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth.” Following the show’s successful Vegas debut, famed director Spike Lee brought it to Broadway in July 2012. “Undisputed Truth” is the raw, no-holds-barred life story of the legend himself as it has never been told before. In the show—as in his speaking engagements—Tyson unveils never-before-told stories, peeling back layers of tragedy and public turmoil while unfolding his tale of triumph and survival. In an up-close-and-personal setting, Tyson shares the stories of his life and experiences as a professional athlete and controversies in and out of the ring. Theatrical, intimate, and unprecedented, he reveals the man behind the myth. “Undisputed Truth” was such a smash hit on Broadway that it is being taken on a national tour.

Tyson explores these same themes in his speaking engagements, offering audiences an open and unvarnished glimpse into his storied past—from his glory as an athlete to the controversies that have plagued him over the years—and how he overcame the blows life dealt him with the same grit and determination he showed in the ring.

Mike Tyson is currently retired from boxing and is based in Las Vegas, the city that he helped electrify on so many fight nights over the past two decades. Now dedicated to giving back to the community, Tyson launched his own charity, The Mike Tyson Cares Foundation, on December 7th, 2012. The Foundation’s mission is to “give kids a fighting chance” by providing innovative centers that offer services to meet the comprehensive needs of kids from broken homes.
