'Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth' Trailer: A Boxer Meets the Stage (Video)

The Spike Lee-directed film airs Nov. 16 on HBO.

The new trailer for the Spike Lee-directed HBO title Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth shows the boxer confessing, joking and sharing about his life -- while onstage. 

STORY:  Mike Tyson Talks 'Hangover 3,' His One-Man Show  

In the clip, Mike Tyson figures that he was arrested "over 38 times" by the time he was 12 years old, dishes about infamous anger problems and takes a few mock swings. 

The film is drawn from the show that Tyson performed in Las Vegas, New York and on tour.

While a previously released teaser had set a serious tone, the new trailer showcases more humor. The clip trots out a memorable one-liner from the boxer: "I know many are probably wondering, 'What the hell is Mike Tyson going to do up here onstage here tonight?' You know, frankly, I'm wondering the same thing."

In a review of the show in New York in 2012, The Hollywood Reporter's Frank Scheck found the production to be "weirdly fascinating, and actually in keeping with a long tradition of pugilists retreating to the stage after their fighting days are over." 

The film airs Nov. 16 on HBO.
