MIKE TYSON has revealed he was on magic mushrooms during his fight with Roy Jones Jr.
Iron Mike showed off his immense power during the fight in California, which went the distance and was declared a draw.
But now the Baddest Man on the Planet has revealed he “couldn’t feel the punches” – because he was on shrooms DURING the fight.
Tyson has recently championed the use of herbal remedies and owns a 420-acre cannabis farm in Southern California.
He joined Ryan Clark, Channing Crowder and Fred Taylor on podcast ‘The Pivot’ this week to talk about his life – and revealed he was under the influence of mushrooms during the Jones Jr showdown.
Iron Mike said: “We don’t use [mushrooms] to run away. It helps me train, it helps me box better.
“When I’m fighting, I really don’t feel the punches. It’s really just like some magical s***.
“You saw me just fight [against Roy Jones Jr]. I was on shrooms.
“I wouldn’t fight without them, are you crazy? And some weed.
“I wish I did this s*** in my career, I’m so f****** mad I didn’t know about this s***”.
Tyson has admitted “doing shrooms” with YouTuber Jake Paul in the past after the YouTuber called out the heavyweight legend for a money-spinning fight.
