Now, we all know Mike Tyson is somewhat of a shocker for multiple reasons (Evander Holyfield’s ear included), however, it is msomething magnificent to see, to say the least. Most people would definitely think twice before eating up a handful of magic mushrooms, but hey, the man is called Iron Mike for a bunch of reasons. Less than five minutes into the podcast, Tyson swapped a joint he’d been smoking out for about four or five grams of Mushrooms handed to him by Paul’s cohost, Mike Majlak, and, well, he never looked back.
Iron Mike has always been a strong supporter of recreational marijuana, yet he’s still fond with psychedelic drugs, and has been very open about how these head-knockers helped him to box back.
Tyson said that he thinks more and more psychedelics will become legal in the US the future, by saying, ‘It’s going to be the best thing in the 21st century…[it] helps me be a better me.’
Tyson, who is 54, has also experienced with even more powerful psychedelic drugs, such as DMT and Changa. But one drug caused him to fulfill his complete return to the ring, a psych he calls “The Toad”.
I took the medicine and the medicine told me to get into shape. It really blew my mind. It told me to come back and start getting in shape.
Tyosn told Paul that these drugs made him feel as he could see ‘the Sun open up’, and helped him to focus while training for his comeback.
He also touched spoke about many other subjects in the podcast, including his upbringing, where he spoke out his claim that he had been arrested almost 40 times before he was even a teenager.
Tyson also addressed the upcoming exhibition bout with Floyd Mayweather, stating ‘Floyd’s gonna beat [your] f**kin’ a**. But it’s gonna be good! It’s gonna be good, [you’re] gonna fight back though!’
