Boxing legend Mike Tyson is coming back to Tampa Bay.

Tampa’s Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino has announced that the controversial Tyson will bring his one-man, autobiographical Broadway show, Undisputed Truth: Round 2, to its Hard Rock Event Center at 8 p.m. April 3. Tickets start at $60 and go on sale at 9 a.m. Friday through Ticketmaster.

Undisputed Truth: Round 2 is a followup to Tyson’s first Undisputed Truth show, which he has been touring with for the last few years. It debuted as a Spike Lee-directed production on Broadway in 2012 and also aired as an HBO special. Locally, Undisputed Truth stopped at Clearwater’s Ruth Eckerd Hall in 2013 and at the Hard Rock in 2014.

Similar to Undisputed Truth, Undisputed Truth: Round 2 “will be an unapologetic look at the ups and downs of Tyson’s post-boxing life and career,” according to a news release announcing the show.
