Mike Tyson says he used his infant child’s urine to pass drug tests during his boxing career.
Mike Tyson shares how he used to finesse his way out of getting caught using drugs while competing as a professional boxer. On another episode of Tyson’s podcast Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson, the athlete opened up about a prosthetic penis he sometimes used while being tested during his days as a boxer. “I put my baby’s urine in it. And sometimes, one time I was using my wife’s [urine] and my wife was like ‘Baby you better not hope that it comes back pregnant or something,’ explained Tyson to his guest Jeff Novitzky, the vice president of athlete health and performance for the UFC.
He continued, “And I said, ‘Nah, so we ain’t gonna use you any more, we’re gonna use the kid.’ Cuz I got scared that the p— might come back pregnant…That’s what I was afraid of.” Tyson has previously talked about using the prosthetic before, saying that he was trying to cover up his cocaine and marijuana use. He never specified which wife he was referring to.
This won’t be Tyson’s last hoorah in the ring. He set to go against Roy Jones Jr. on Nov. 28 for an exhibition match. The match was previously rescheduled from its initial date in September, PEOPLE reports. At the end of Jones’ career, he left the game with 66 wins and nine losses. Tyson left with a 50-6 record and 44 knockouts. Tyson’s Legends Only League will be putting the event together.
