The most feared boxer of all time may be planning to conquer the Broadway stage, according to the New York Post. Mike Tyson, who will be acting in a one-man show in Las Vegas starting April 13, reportedly has his sights set on the bright lights of Broadway theater in New York City.

Tyson will perform Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth -- Live on Stage at MGM Grand's Hollywood Theatre in Las Vegas from April 13 to 18. Tickets have been selling well for his shows, but none have sold out to date. The former heavyweight champ is waiting to see how ticket sales go to determine whether a move to the Big Apple could work.

The show will feature live music and video as Tyson tells stories from his childhood to his controversial, epic and sometimes destructive adulthood. He has reportedly always wanted to do a show on Broadway and believes this is his chance.
