Having prevailed in some of the fiercest bouts a 58-fight boxing career would most certainly offer, it wouldn’t be too criminal to yap out loud that nothing in the world would prove too big or daunting a task for the ‘Baddest Man on the Planet,’ Iron Mike Tyson.
Not even the seemingly huge task of having to take a hit from an opponent as fired up as a gigantic one-foot long roll of marijuana.
The former WBC, WBA and IBF world heavyweight champion, at a marijuana carnival, decided to let lose, and was spotted smoking a huge joint of marijuana.
In an Instagram post making rounds on social media, the 52-year-old is seen holding the huge joint with both hands. Iron Mike takes multiple drags from the joint before passing it on to a fellow stoner.
Though it is no secret that Tyson- who won 50 fights with 44 by way of knockout- is a strong believer in the healing powers of the psychoactive drug, the size of the blunt he was smoking in the video caught them unawares.
Tyson admitted to smoking marijuana before he beat Andrew Golota in 2000, and although he won after Golota blatantly refused to answer the bell for the third round, the decision was later rescinded to a no contest as he tested positive for marijuana after the fight.
According to the boxer who claims he has been a marijuana user all his life, the Golota fight was the only time he had smoked weed and fought, saying ‘it didn’t affect me. It affected Golota.’
Mike Tyson rans a school for potential marijuana farmers called ‘The Tyson Cultivation School,’ and is the owner of a 40-acre cannabis ranch close to California’s Death Valley.
