While smoking a joint, Tyson, owner of the cannabis company Tyson Ranch, explained his encounters with drug tests on his podcast “Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson.”
“It was awesome, man,” said Tyson. “I put my baby’s urine in it. And sometimes, 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. Cuz I got scared that the piss might come back pregnant.”
Novitzky replied: “I think that’s happened before. A male provided a urine sample and it came back and they said ‘Sir, you’re pregnant. Either you’re pregnant or this is somebody else’s urine.’”
Tyson said: “That was what I was afraid of. I guess I heard of this happening because I was afraid of that.”
Novitzky asked: “Did you have the right color whizzinator? Because there was that NFL guy last season with a white one.”
“Yeah, hell yeah, I had a brown one,” Tyson said. “This guy was so macho, he was scared. I whipped it out and he was like turning, ‘hey man take the f--king cup.’ This macho guy, he didn’t want to look at me and s--t.”
There is no indication of performance enhancing substances here. Tyson himself has often spoken of his use of cocaine and marijuana, but has always denied PEDs and has never tested positive for any.
Tyson tested positive for marijuana after he made Andrew Golota quit in two rounds in 2000. Before the fight, Tyson refused to submit to a urine test and was fined $5,000. The fight was later switched to a no contest, and Tyson was forced to pay $200,000 to various charities.
On the RJJ Boxing show last month, Jones said: “I hope [Tyson] passes the test, because without the test we can’t fight, but even if he didn’t pass the test, Roy would still fight.”
Tyson has credited his physical transformation of late to a vegan diet, cardio and stem cell therapy.
