Mike Tyson's on-stage success is driving him to return in a one-man show.

The 45-year-old former heavyweight boxer is planning a series of theater shows across America slated for next year. Tyson broke the news while appearing on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" on Tuesday night.

The show, titled "Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth," will feature the boxing champion chronicling his life through a performed monologue. Tyson will cover the high and low points of his life, starting with his rough childhood in Brooklyn.

He told Kimmel that the inspiration for doing the show came from Tyson viewing a one-man performance of "A Bronx Tale" in Las Vegas. Tyson, who retired from boxing in 2006, said in the show that he has been sober from drugs and alcohol for more than three years. However, many of his anecdotes and stories will delve deep into his darkest days and he will bring out his own humor when he can.

The autobiographical show was first performed in April in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand's Hollywood Theatre and later continued with a short run on Broadway, which was directed by Spike Lee.

The 23-date tour is scheduled to begin in Indianapolis on Feb. 12. This is the same city where Tyson was convicted in 1992 for the rape of beauty queen Desiree Washington, who was 18-year-old at the time.

Tyson was the youngest world heavyweight champion at age 20. After three years in prison, he returned to the ring and in 1997 became infamous for biting part of Evander Holyfield's ear during a fight. Since retiring from boxing, Tyson's fame was rekindled with a cameo appearance in the hit comedy "The Hangover" in 2009. Tyson returned for the 2011 sequel, in which featured actor Ed Helms sporting a similar face tattoo.
