NEW YORK (PIX11) — After a highly successful run on Broadway, heavyweight champ Mike Tyson took his one-man-show on the road and he’s back in the Big Apple with a few local performances.  He made a pit stop at PIX11 Morning News where he opened up about his life after the ring.

During his interview, Tyson, who has been saddled with an IRS debt somewhere around $7 million, revealed that he will never be wealthy again.  However, the legendary fighter seems fine with that prospect as his main concerns these days are providing for his family and making amends for the things he’s done.

In his show “Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth, ” Tyson brings an unfiltered look at himself to audiences and tackles the most difficult moments of his life and career while on stage.

Tyson is even candid when speaking of his 1992 conviction where he was accused of raping Desiree Washington. Iron Mike was sentenced to six years in prison but was released after severing three years.

He performs Thursday at Newark’s Prudential Center, Sunday night at Manhattan’s Beacon Theatre, and May 5th at Long Island’s Theater at Westbury.
