PHOENIX -- Love him or hate him, Iron Mike Tyson has lived an interesting life. 

Tyson was the youngest heavyweight champion of the world and made hundreds of millions of dollars.  He also fought a lot of controversy outside the ring and spent various stints behind bars. 

 He's now bringing his life to the stage around the country in a one-man called "Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth." It's a 10-week tour that includes a stop here in Phoenix at Comerica Theatre on Feb. 23.

The show is described as "a rare, personal look inside the life and mind of the one of the most complicated men ever to wear the heavyweight crown"

Tyson told me that he's been sober for four years now and has never felt better.  Tyson also says he's much happier now that he's straightened out his life, even compared to when he was making millions in the ring.  

Once called "The Baddest Man on the Planet," Tyson has appeared in the "Hangover" movies. He also has his own clothing line and runs his own production company. 

His national tour is directed by Spike Lee.

Before taking the stage at Comerica Theatre, Tyson will be at Tucson's Centennial Hall.
