Mike Tyson and Spike Lee have announced their plans to launch a new Broadway performance entitled 'Mike Tyson - The Undisputed Truth.' It's an unexpected step for the former boxing champion. His reputation has never recovered since he was convicted of rape in 1992 and then, four years ago, was involved in a brawl with fellow boxer Lennox Lewis at a press conference before a fight, biting Lewis on the leg.

Former tabloid editor Piers Morgan has won the celebrity version of The Apprentice in the US.
Donald Trump, America's answer to Sir Alan Sugar, hailed his winner as a "vicious guy".
The billionaire had likened Morgan's final tussle with country singer Trace Adkins as "good versus evil; American versus Britain".
"You're tough, you're smart, you're probably brilliant, I'm not sure. You're certainly not diplomatic," Trump said of Morgan, who raised more than the 13 other contestants combined.
"But you did an amazing job and you beat the hell out of everybody. And you won by far more than anybody."
Morgan himself, a judge on America's Got Talent and its UK alternative Britain's Got Talent, presented himself as an "evil, obnoxious, disgusting Brit".
Together the celebrities, which included UK boxer Lennox Lewis, Hollywood actor Stephen Baldwin and KISS singer Gene Simmons, raised more than $1 million (£500,000) for charity.
Morgan had chosen the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, which provides support to families of US troops, as his charity.
The former editor of the Daily Mirror received help from Britain's Got Talent co-judge Simon Cowell and Sir Richard Branson during the season's run.
Morgan was only selected for the series, The Apprentice's seventh in the US, after getting fired from the one-off UK celebrity version by Sir Alan.

Saturday's HBO telecast of the Floyd Mayweather Jr.-Oscar De La Hoya battle drew 2.15 million pay-per-view customers, generating $120 million in revenue -- smashing the previous record of $106.9 million for the Lennox Lewis-Mike Tyson bout in 2002. Word of the success came on the same day that Chris Albrecht, the chairman/CEO of HBO, was fired by parent company Time Warner following his arrest Sunday for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend in Las Vegas after the fight. In a statement, Albrecht said that he had agreed to step down "with great regret, at the request of Time Warner ... recognizing that I cannot allow my personal circumstances to distract them from the business." Albrecht is often credited with being the man who led HBO into original programming, eventually bringing it such shows as The Sopranos and Sex And The City.
Liza Minnelli performed at a Bat Mitzvah celebration for the daughter of US hair transplant pioneer Dr JOEL KASSIMIR on Saturday (11NOV06) - and waived her usual $250,000 (GBP139,000) fee.
The 60-year-old performed five songs at CHARLOTTE KASSIMIR's coming of age ceremony at New York's Marquee club, which was decorated with pink and white crystals by designer ED LIBBY at a cost of $1 million (GBP550,000).
A source tells the New York Post, "Liza is an old family friend and did it as a favour. She can command $250,000 a show and usually doesn't get out of bed for less than that."
Minnelli, watched by guests including former champion boxer Lennox Lewis, told Charlotte, "Enjoy being a girl because life goes by in a snap."
Former world boxing champion Mike Tyson has revealed his next challenge will be fighting women boxers in the ring.
The notorious 40-year-old sports star claims to be "serious" about his plans to square up to the opposite sex, and has expressed his desire to take on Texan boxing champ ANN WOLFE.
But unfortunately for Tyson, who has previously been jailed for rape and hit headlines when he threatened to "eat" fellow boxer Lennox Lewis' children, his wishes may not be fulfilled.
Promoter RUSS YOUNG says, "(Wolfe) would never entertain the idea."
Boxing champion-turned-actor Lennox Lewis was 'knocked out' by four chess masters last week (ends02JUN06) as part of a boardgame bonanza in New York's Washington Square Park. Lewis, who famously played chess to calm his nerves before a big fight, played 18 matches in a speed chess tournament - and lost only four times. The players who beat the champ each won $1,000 (GBP555) and a certificate boasting 'I KO'd Lennox Lewis'.
Rourke, who used to be a professional fighter, maintains there is no way the Hollywood stars would stand a chance against serious opposition - despite training as boxers for their roles in ALI and Cinderella Man.
