Postponed: Mike Tyson Round 2 of Undisputed Truth

Boxing great Mike Tyson’s Round 2 of his Undisputed Truth at Reno has been postponed.
Mike Tyson was one of the sport’s most brutal, entertaining and successful fighters, with a career spanning from the mid 1980s to a couple stuttering comebacks in the early 2000s that might now remain most well-known for an ear-biting disqualification.

While his success in the ring followed a background that included growing up in Brooklyn’s hardscrabble Brownsville and Bed-Stuy neighborhoods and dealing with a series of deaths to those family members closest to him, it led to other pitfalls including drugs, debts and a personality unable to dodge and jab media missteps and scrutiny with the same finesse he carried into the ring.

The fighter emerged through the other side with a desire to leave it all behind, at one time retiring to a simpler lifestyle of raising and caring for pigeons.

Eventually, he emerged in a series of speaking engagements, a cathartic autobiography delivered onstage in which the fighter let his guard down and delivered his story with an honesty and humility that few would expect from someone who made his physically destroying others.

What he revealed was a much more complex figure offering a human look at a life of staggering accomplishment and tumult.His shows became so engaging that he worked with Spike Lee to produce a documentary film adaptation of them, entitled "Undisputed Truth."

The subject of countless biographies, this show gives the opportunity for one who was once at the top of his trade -- then broken down to the point of giving an interview expressing his wish to walk away from his past and become a missionary --to speak candidly about the life, perspectives and challenges that have brought him to where he is today.

On Friday, March 13, Tyson will appear at the Grand Sierra Resort & Casino’s Grand Theater, offering Round 2 of his Undisputed Truth show.

A sign that summer is here and hopefully that some degree of normalcy is returning, Town Staff hung the flower baskets along Main Street this morning. A nice touch to beautify downtown and make Gardnerville feel like home.
