Mike Tyson show at Ovens canceled

Tattoo a frown on your face, Iron Mike fans: Mike Tyson’s one-man show, “Undisputed Truth” -- originally scheduled for April 21 at Ovens Auditorium -- has been canceled.

Weak ticket sales seem to be the culprit.

Said producer James L. Nederlander: "I am huge supporter of Mike and this compelling show. Unfortunately tickets sales in certain markets did not support the scope of the tour originally planned, and we've pulled back in a few markets. The tour is still traveling to numerous cities. Mike has been the consummate professional, and I'm proud to bring Mike's talent and story around the country.”

The Champ himself put an even greater spin on the situation:

"Due to circumstances beyond my control," Tyson said, "certain cities on my ‘Undisputed Truth’ tour have been canceled. I am so appreciative of my fans and all of my supporters. I sincerely apologize to anyone that was inconvenienced by these cancelations. I was looking forward to doing a great show for you and hope at a later date that I am still able to do so."

Refunds are available at point-of-purchase locations.

Leave the guy alone. He was the last truly exciting heavyweight in modern times.

I think that a lot of us would be F,ed up if we were adopted as an adolescent out of the horrible situation he was and thrust into a profession where we could earn insane money overnight.

I am 71 & 1/2 inches with a 72" reach & I cant even imagine destroying a guy like Micheal Spinks.

Sorry FFTBrave, but Mike Tyrson was the first thug heavyweight in modern times. Ali was the last truly exciting heavyweight.

I feel for that sap who bought my row A seats for $500! I get my money refunded through Ticketbasstard, and he gets nothing.

Mike Gerard Tyson, aka, Malik Abdul Aziz, made his claim to fame in the Ring and at times a little departure from the Regular role of Prize Fighter/Champion. He has had his 'heyday' and seems to have a road show in different demands. He could probably do well in Tinseltown in some special roles such as a heavyweight, villain, etc. He has been nicknamed the "baddest guy on the planet, Iron Mike, Kid dynamite," which would do
well in pre-publicity for many roles. Best to him in whatever he decides to do in the acting profession. Additionally he could help a lot of charitable causes.
