Mike Tyson offered $100k by adult company CamSoda… to be drug tester in Thailand after admitting to using fake penis during boxing career
Mike Tyson revealed in his new autobiography, Undisputed Truth, that he had a drug problem throughout his boxing career.
Iron Mike says he only cleaned up in 2009 and was a ‘full-blown cokehead’ prior to that.
The former heavyweight champion claimed to have taken cocaine before his shock 2004 defeat to Danny Williams, and also said he took the drug during his famous press conference brawl with Lennox Lewis in 2002.
“I was a full-blown cokehead,” Tyson claims while revealing he first took cocaine when he was 11.
“The history of war is the history of drugs. Every great general and warrior from the beginning of time was high.”
Iron Mike claims he used to fill up a prosthetic penis with someone else’s urine – sometimes his child’s – to avoid detection in drug tests.
Now, adult entertainment company CamSoda have offered Tyson $100,000 to be their Drug Test Coordinator for its upcoming fight card in Thailand, Fight Circus.
The event goes down on November 21 and, in fairness, who better to oversee your drug tests than a man that evaded the system for so long!
CamSoda vice president Daryn Parker wrote to Tyson: “I know you have a big fight coming up yourself on the 28th. We are willing to fly out your entire team so that you can continue your training camp in Thailand.
“There are plenty of tigers around, I know you’re fond of them. On a personal level, I’m a huge fan and cannot wait to see you and Roy Jones Jr. battle it out.”
Tyson does indeed have a big fight coming up as he takes on a fellow legend in Jones Jr in an eight-round exhibition contest at the end of the month.
Stepping into the ring at 54 is not the easiest thing to do, but the vegan lifestyle Tyson’s been practicing for over a decade now gave him the fuel to not only kick drugs, but hop back inside the ring, too.
