Mike Tyson says he scammed drug testers during boxing career

Ethan Miller

Mike Tyson says that he used plenty of illegal drugs during his boxing career, cheating to get through drug tests held by state commissions.

This week's Mike Tyson Story is a real doozy, kinda. In his soon-to-be-released book Undisputed Truth, Tyson says he was a "full-blown cokehead" who fought under the influence frequently during his career, using a "whizzer" to scam drug testers.

"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 blamed a $200,000 (pounds 126,000) fine for testing positive for marijuana after a 2000 fight against Andrew Golota in Detroit on the fact that he was tested before having a chance to get the ‘whizzer' from a member of his team, whom he claims typically carried the device from fight to fight.

Since I'm not personally interested in this at all and can't even pretend that I am, I'll leave it up to you guys to decide if this is actually discussion-worthy, and I'll say for my part that I doubt literally everything Mike Tyson says in terms of it being truthful or sincere, because he's made very clear in the last 25 years or whatever that he's not the most trustworthy athlete of our time.
