In an Autobiography of Mike Tyson, titled Undisputed Truth and released on Tuesday, Mike Tyson admits to some shocking details of his career, including heavy drug use and how he was able to pass given tests time and time again.
Tyson admitted to being high on Cocaine up to, and during fights in the book.
“I was a full-blown cokehead,” Tyson wrote regarding the 2004 shocker he lost to Danny Williams, via the Telegraph.
The now 47-year-old Boxer admitted to drug use that dated back to when he was a child, just eleven years old, and claims to have been given alcohol since he was a baby.
But Tyson tested clean during his career, how did he pull off these tests that were monitored by several different people?
He used a fake Penis to house clean urine, and used that urine to pass tests.
Confessing he had taken “blow” and “pot” before the bout, he said: “I had to use my whizzer, which was a fake penis where you put in someone’s clean urine to pass your drug test.”
He blamed a $200,000 fine for testing positive for marijuana after a 2000 fight against Andrew Golota in Detroit on the fact that he was tested before having a chance to get the ‘whizzer’ from a member of his team, whom he claims typically carried the device from fight to fight.
Tyson explained he had taken cocaine before a notorious televised press conference with Lennox Lewis in New York in January 2002, which descended into an onstage brawl between the rival camps.
“I lost my mind,” Tyson recalled. “I looked over at him and wanted to hit the motherf—er.” As the pair of heavyweights tussled, Tyson bit into one of Lewis’s legs.
He’s known for another bite however, and he discusses that controversial move as well, saying that he admits he lost his cool – but he was driven to do it based off Holyfield’s repeated headbutts – something that drove Tyson to the extreme.
