Former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson is currently opening the doors to his private life in the reality TV series “Being: Mike Tyson” on the Fox Sports 1 channel. Starting next year, the athlete will head to Britain to tour his solo stage show, with an opening set for London’s Apollo Theatre in March.

“Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth” is also scheduled to travel to Glasgow and Manchester before heading to engagements in Norway, Denmark and Sweden. Tyson first performed the show at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas in 2012 before taking it to Broadway.

He later toured the U.S. with the show, including a stop at the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood in March.

Directed by Spike Lee, “Undisputed Truth” finds the former boxing champion in a reflective mood as he recalls the highpoints of his career and some of the controversies, such as his run-ins with the law.

“Undisputed Truth” has also been filmed for a future air date on HBO.
