MIKE TYSON admitted he smoked cannabis before his comeback fight against Roy Jones and revealed: ‘I can’t stop’.
The heavyweight legend boxed to a draw on Saturday night in what turned out to be a bizarre eight-round exhibition bout.

Both men – who had a combined age of 105 – were drug tested by Voluntary Anti-Doping Association beforehand.
But cannabis was not included and 54-year-old Tyson took full advantage with a pre-fight blaze.
He revealed: “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.”
Tyson would have appreciated the undercard performances as Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa appeared to smoke a blunt on stage.
Many felt the iconic puncher – fighting for the first time in 15 years – should have got the win on points.
