BEVERLY HILLS, CALIF.—Mike Tyson is going back to pay TV, where his fights were some of the biggest money-makers in boxing history.

Only this time the punches he’s throwing are verbal.

The former heavyweight champion teamed with director Spike Lee to bring Tyson’s one-man stage show to HBO later this year.

The program was filmed on Broadway, where Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth ran last summer.

During the Television Critics Association summer meeting Thursday, Tyson said walking onstage to perform a live show is similar to going into the ring. He said the biggest difference between the two is he doesn’t have to go to the hospital after he performs.

Lee used 11 cameras to film the show that he describes as part of Tyson’s legacy outside the ring.
