Mike Tyson has been bitten by the acting bug.

After a limited Broadway engagement, the former heavyweight champion is bringing taking his one-man show "Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth" on the road. The production hits Chicago on February 15-17 at the Cadillac Palace Theatre.

The play, directed by Spike Lee and written by Tyson's third wife, Kiki Tyson, ranges from his poor upbringing in Brooklyn, to many of his big moments in and out of the ring, such as his tumultuous marriage to actress Robin Givens and the infamous biting of Evander Holyfield's ear in a 1997 match.

The play will hit more than 36 cities across the country.

Tyson's acting credits include a popular role in The Hangover movies.

Pre-sale tickets are already available.
