A new film looking behind the scenes of one of boxing's most legendary personalities, Mike Tyson, is set to air in November.

The HBO feature expands on the ideas behind Tyson's popular live-on-stage tour of the same name.

In February, Tyson took his one-man show, Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth, on a 36-city, three-month national tour - the former boxer talks about his personal and professional life on stage.

Producer Spike Lee translates Tyson's storytelling ability into a documentary-film that shows what makes the former heavyweight champions of the world tick.

Tyson, who retired from professional boxing on June 11th, is widely considered one of the best heavyweights of all time - and has been inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame.

The 47-year-old finished with a record of 50 wins and six losses during his 58 fights, with two no contests.

Following Tyson's retirement, he returned to the ring in 2006 for a series of four-round exhibitions against journeyman heavyweight Corey "T-Rex" Sanders.

Tyson has also launched the Mike Tyson Cares Foundation, which helps with the needs of children from broken homes.

Saturday, 16th November is the date for the diary, with HBO offering fight-fans the chance to see behind the headlines of one of boxing’s most legendary personalities.
