Verbal Blows

You could consider him one of the last world-recognized boxers in history and you wouldn’t be wrong. You could, also associate him with lady beating, ear biting and face tattoos. So what will Mike Tyson say during his two-hour one-man show Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth at the Verizon Amphitheater (1001 Performance Place, Grand Prairie) at 8 p.m. Tuesday? According to reviews, if you want to hear about the life of a professional boxer or listen to famous matches relived, this is not the show for you. It’s more of a two-hour explanation of what led to Tyson’s most Tyson-y moments, as told by Tyson. The production, written by Mike’s wife, Kiki, debuted in Vegas, spent time in Broadway and then launched its year-long national tour. Reviews have been patchy about this Spike Lee-directed joint, but you won’t know if you don’t go. Tickets range $39.50 to $300. Visit verizontheatre.com.
