Oh, Mike Tyson, you pigeon-loving, alcoholic rascal, you! Mike just released a new memoir called The Undisputed Truth and in it, he reveals some pretty crazy shit about his career, like that he used to go into boxing matches high on cocaine, and that he used a fake penis to pass drug tests back in the day. Whuuuut.
Here are some key quotes (via DS):
“The history of war is the history of drugs. Every great general and warrior from the beginning of time was high.”
“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 also claimed to have taken cocaine in 2002 before his match against Lennox Lewis where he famously bit his leg.
Tyson said: “I lost my mind. I looked over at him and wanted to hit the motherf**ker.”
I mean, I don’t think anyone will be particularly surprised by these “revelations”, to be honest. Everyone knows he was doing drugs, and – like Rick James taught us many moons ago – cocaine is a hell of a drug. Oh, and Mike Tyson is fucking insane.
I don’t even like boxing, but I bet that book’s a pretty interesting read, to be honest.
