In a post-fight press conference following the long-anticipated exhibition match with Roy Jones Jr., Mike Tyson revealed his smoky pre-fight ritual which includes a little “puff puff pass.”
“Listen, I can’t stop smoking,” he said. “I smoked during fights. I just have to smoke, I’m sorry. I’m a smoker. … I smoke everyday. I never stopped smoking,” Mike shared. Adding “it’s just who I am; it has no effect on me from a negative standpoint” and “it justs numbs me, it doesn’t numb the pain.”
Tyson’s revelation should come as no surprise since the 54-year-old boxing legend owns the cannabis company “Tyson Ranch,” based just outside of Los Angeles.
“It’s just what I do and how I am and how I’m going to die. There’s no explanation. There’s no beginning, there’s no end,” Tyson said about his Marijuana lifestyle.
Mike went on to reveal his previous drug use which has included cocaine, but admits he’s been clean for 2.5 years with the exception of a little green ganja.
Tyson made his grand return to the ring after a 15-year hiatus with his boxing match with Jones. The two went toe-to-toe for eight rounds before it was declared a draw. What do you think of Mike admitting to smoking weed just before the fight? Tune in to see what our Dish Nation hosts think!
