But first, Iron Mike stopped by The Couch to talk to us about his incredible life, career and his new show.

The youngest heavyweight champ in history said the show doesn't touch on his boxing career - although it does include a bit about the Evander Holyfield incident - but instead focuses on the story of Tyson's troubled life.

And he's not using the show as an opportunity to defend his choices.

"People know the truth" he said. "If I'm on stage and I'm saying anything far left of truth, [the audience] knows it's a lie."

"I'm basically emotionally naked, and just telling everybody my life from my perspective," Tyson said.

"It's a story everybody knows, but they just don't know the underlying story to the story."
