Tyson says he’s used to putting life on stage



NEW YORK (AP) — Mike Tyson has no problem talking about his personal life on a Broadway stage. The former heavyweight champ says that’s what he’s used to doing, and this way he doesn’t have to go to the hospital.

The 46-year old Tyson is appearing in the one-man show, “Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth.” Directed by Spike Lee, the nearly two-hour show chronicles Tyson’s life from childhood and his early boxing career to his public divorce from Robin Givens and his time spent in prison.

While Tyson’s life has been tumultuous at times, the boxer told The Associated Press in an interview Thursday that he can deal with talking about it to a room full of strangers simply because “it’s a job to be done.”
