Mike Tyson Confirms To Reporters That He Was High As Shit During His Fight Last Night

Source - Mike Tyson wasn’t just high off his celebrated return to the boxing ring at age 54.

The boxing icon said he smoked marijuana prior to his eight-round exhibition bout Saturday against Roy Jones Jr. at Staples Center.

“Absolutely yes… Listen, I can’t stop smoking,” the former heavyweight champion of the world told reporters after his first fight in 15 years. “I smoked during fights. I just have to smoke, I’m sorry. I’m a smoker. … I smoke everyday. I never stopped smoking.”

The Voluntary Anti-Doping Association tested Tyson and Jones Jr. for performance-enhancing drugs prior to the bout, which ended in an unofficial draw, but weed was not on the list of banned substances.

Good for Mike. If he wants to smoke weed before stepping into the ring for the first time in fifteen years to help calm his nerves then he should be able to do that. It's not like he was snorting coke or drinking or doing any of the fucked up things he used to do before his fights- he was smoking weed. That's it. I'm sure Roy Jones Jr. was cool with it too given how badly he got beaten up. Imagine if Mike went in there not mellowed out? This blog would've been an obituary for Roy...

When asked why he smoked before the fight, Tyson gave arguably the most stoner answer of all time...

“It’s just who I am,’’ Tyson said. “It has no effect on me from a negative standpoint. 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.”

"It's who I am, brah. I'm gonna die high."

 Let's not forget that Mike loves weed so much he's opening a 420 acre 'cannabis resort' in California, which means it would've been off-brand for him not to have shown up stoned. The fight was also sponsored by Weed Maps so it makes sense. Not only that, Snoop Dogg was commentating (and smoking) during the fights. I'm sure you've already heard his Nate Robinson call, but here it is again just incase you didn't…

Incredible. Overall it was great night and I'm glad Mike doesn't have to pretend to be something he's not anymore. Keep on smokin', Champ, it's clearly working for ya…
