Former professional boxer, Mike Tyson, also known as Iron Mike, declared during his Hotboxin podcast that he cheated the substance addiction test system.
The boxing legend, while speaking with UFC’s Vice President of Athlete Health and Performance, Jeff Novitzky, in the latest episode of the podcast, revealed that he used a device, Whizzinator, which is a product to simulate male urination, in order to pass his drug tests.
Tyson, who had to take a pre-fight drug test throughout his boxing career, described the product as “awesome” and mentioned how he used it. According to what he declared during the show, he put his family members’ urine into the product to cheat the system. He also admitted that once he used his baby’s urine; however, he was not lucky enough when he used his wife’s.
“One time I was using my wife’s and my wife was like, ‘Baby, you better not hope that it comes back pregnant or something.’ And I said, ‘Nah, so we ain’t gonna use you any more, we’re gonna use the kid.'”
As known, Tyson, who is the youngest heavyweight champion in history, beat Andrew Golota in 2000 when he was 34 years old, however, he was disqualified for failing a pre-fight urine test. Apart from his boxing career, Tyson had to face charges for using substances throughout his entire life. In August 2007, the ex-boxer pleaded guilty to driving under the influence in Arizona.
What’s more, Iron Mike, in his show, ‘Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth,’ where he revealed the dark secrets of his life, told about his addiction:
“I just liked mor**ine. But I had to take a lot of it because it didn’t stay in your system for a long time… And I’d have my co******, and I had my mar*****, and my little friends all sitting there. That’s just how I lived my life.”
