One of boxing’s biggest names, Mike Tyson, returns to HBO this Saturday with the network debut of HBO Films' 'Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth,' the one-man stage show directed by legendary filmmaker Spike Lee. The film premieres Saturday, November 16 at 8:00 PM ET/PT, followed by an all-new episode of '24/7 Pacquiao/Rios' at 9:30 PM and a World Championship Boxing super middleweight title showdown at 10:00 PM.
In addition to starring in his eponymous special, Tyson will also serve as co-host with HBO broadcaster Jim Lampley for the network's slate of entertainment and boxing programming on Saturday night. The pair will introduce the evening's programming lineup, with Tyson providing his inimitable candor.
Leading up to the debut of Tyson’s film, HBO Boxing insider Eric Raskin chronicled the highs and lows of Tyson's career in the ring.
On World Championship Boxing, Andre Ward (26-0, 14 KOs), one of the sport’s premier fighters, returns to the ring after more than a year versus fast-rising super middleweight challenger Edwin Rodriguez (24-0, 16 KOs), 28, of Worcester, Mass. Lampley will be joined ringside by Max Kellerman and Roy Jones Jr. to call the bout, while Tyson will join with a guest interview appearance.
