Mike Tyson did some serious training before getting back into the ring for his fight against Roy Jones Jr., but one thing he didn’t change about his daily routine was his marijuana intake.

Tyson went on to start a marijuana company after leaving the boxing world, plus he recently admitted that he dodged drug tests throughout his career using different methods, like using a fake penis for urine tests. With that being said, it really shouldn’t surprise fans that Iron Mike claims he was high during his fight with Roy Jones Jr. this weekend.

“Absolutely yes… Listen, I can’t stop smoking,” he admitted to reporters after the fight. “I smoked during fights. I just have to smoke, I’m sorry. I’m a smoker. … I smoke everyday. I never stopped smoking.”

When it comes to smoking, Tyson said that him and Mary Jane are a package deal–plus, it has never affected his abilities in the ring.

“It’s just who I am,” he said following the fight. “It has no effect on me from a negative standpoint. It’s just what I do and how I am and how I’m going to die. There’s no explanation. There’s no beginning, there’s no end.”

And there you have it.

Although the fight ended up in a draw, fans still believe that that the former heavyweight champion won. Tyson shared with media outlets that the big fight wasn’t about making money. The boxing champ had plans to form a Legends Only League. The winner of the fight would have won the WBC Front Line belt. Although it may not have happened for this fight, The Hot Boxin podcast host says he plans on fighting again soon.

In other Mike Tyson related news, looks like the fighter has entered into the music arena with a single called “Tiki Lau” which he played during Saturday night’s show. Mike actually premiered his EDM inspired track back in October, claiming that he needed some cool music to walk out to during his highly anticipated fight against Captain Hook. You can listen to the full song down below.
