He is a retired heavyweight boxing champion.But Mike Tyson is showing no signs of slowing down.The 46-year-old looked fit as a fiddle as he arrived at Los Angeles International Airport with his wife Lakiha Spicer on Wednesday, after news broke that his hit one-man stage show will air on HBO later this year.The legendary boxer looked buff in a fitted white T-shirt and jeans paired with sparkling white trainers as he walked arm-in-arm with his svelte wife.
Tyson showed off his tattooed arms in the top, and appeared to be in a buoyant mood as he smiled while walking into the building.Spicer, meanwhile, looked trim in fitted skinny jeans, espadrilles and a simple black top, pulling her hair back into a high bun.Tyson had reason to smile as news broke on Wednesday that his one-man stage show Undisputed Truth will be turned into a television special by HBO.
Spike Lee will direct a taped performance of the stage show in July, which will be broadcast later this year.’Mike Tyson’s one-man show is a fascinating journey into his storied life and career, and we are thrilled to have Spike Lee bring it from the stage to the screen for our viewers,’ HBO Programming president Michael Lombardo said.The stage show debuted in Las Vegas in August 2012 and in early 2013 Tyson took the show on the road for a 36-city, three-month US tour.
‘I’m incredibly grateful to HBO for partnering with me and for believing in my story,’ Tyson said. ‘It is an honor and a privilege to be working with them to bring my one-man show, ‘Undisputed Truth,’ to live on the television screen.’Lee mentored Tyson during the theatrical run of his show, and the pair also worked on boxing drama pilot Da Brick in 2011 that HBO ultimately passed on. – DailyMail
