Seminole Casino Coconut Creek – The Pavilion
5550 NW 40th Street,
Coconut Creek, Florida 33073
One of the worldâ€™s most powerful sports figures, former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson, will bring his popular Broadway show, MIKE TYSON: UNDISPUTED TRUTH, to The Pavilion at Seminole Casino Coconut Creek on Saturday, November 10 at 9 p.m. This will be the only performance in Florida, giving fans a special chance to see the show and learn more about the star.
MIKE TYSON: UNDISPUTED TRUTH is a rare, personal look inside the life and mind of one of the most complicated men ever to wear the heavyweight belt. Directed by Academy Award nominee Spike Lee, this riveting one man show goes beyond the headlines, behind the scenes and between the lines to deliver a must-see theatrical knockout.
For nearly three decades, Tyson has been a legend both in and out of the ring. Tenacious, talented and thrilling to watch, Tyson embodies the wit and flair of a truly larger-than-life personality. With nicknames like â€œIron Mike,â€ â€œKid Dynamite,â€ and â€œThe Baddest Man on the Planet,â€ itâ€™s no surprise that Tyson was once the most feared fighter in all of boxing. He won his first 19 professional bouts by knockout, 12 of them in the first round, and one look at the long list of his victories and accomplishments is all that it takes to see that Tyson is one of boxingâ€™s all-time greats.
While most fans know that he was once the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world, few realize that before Tyson, no boxer had ever won the three biggest belts in prizefighting â€“ the World Boxing Council, World Boxing Association and International Boxing Federation world heavyweight titles. He holds the record as the youngest boxer to achieve that feat at the age of 20, and none, besides Tyson, have ever owned them simultaneously.
Throughout his career, Tyson became well known for his fierce and daunting boxing style. He was ranked No. 16 on Ring Magazine’s list of â€œ100 Greatest Punchers of All Timeâ€ and No. 1 in the ESPN.com list of “The Hardest Hitters in Heavyweight History.” He has also been inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame as well as the World Boxing Hall of Fame.
