Mike Tyson confesses to smoking cannabis before fighting Roy Jones
Former world boxing champion, Mike Tyson, has admitted he smoked cannabis before he fought Roy Jones last weekend.
There was no winner in the bizarre eight-round exhibition bout, as the judges ruled it a draw.
Both Tyson and Jones were drug tested by the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA) beforehand.
But cannabis was not included in the list of banned substances and 54-year-old Tyson took full advantage with a pre-fight blaze.
He said: “Listen, I can’t stop smoking.
“I smoked during fights. I just have to smoke. I’m sorry. I’m a smoker.
“I smoke every day. I never stopped smoking.”
