Mike Tyson claims psychedelic drug ‘toad poison’ made it back to boxing at the age of 54.
In November 2020, Tyson stepped into the ring for the first time in 15 years, facing Roy Jones Jr. in a demonstration game.
His last game before that came in a loss to skilled Kevin McBride in 2005, and his return was a surprise.
The game itself ended in a draw, which Tyson discussed during an appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast.
Tyson explains: “I did this frog, this DMT thing, and I lost weight. I don’t know what happened, I said I was going to do this.
“I made this frog and I said, you have to do this … you have to do this [and] I lost weight.”
“Toad Poison” is extracted from a rare species of frog native to Arizona’s Sonoran Desert.
The snorted drug is said to cause “religious excursions,” which can last up to an hour in some cases.
“The Worst Man on Earth” went on to discuss more elements of his comeback, even noting who his original opponent was.
Before Jones Jr. stepping in, Bob Sapp was ready to challenge Iron Mike before seeing former nemesis Evander Holyfield tweeting.
Tyson continued: “From my fight with Bob Sapp, that will be the first fight.
“The game with Roy Jones was supposed to be with Bob Sapp.
“Roy Jones was involved, other fighters were involved, [Evander] Holyfield was involved, and he became a fiasco.
“Jack Paul was involved, and that’s how Jack Paul was born.”
After his fight with Jones Jr., Tyson seemed eager to continue his wrestling career and was doing well on a pay-per-view basis, proving he can still draw.
Jake Paul has been outspoken calling for a fight with Tyson, and the two have become friends outside the ring.
Paul played his cards in the battle of Tyson against Jones Jr. and is now a legitimate boxing star in his own right.
joked Tyson that he wants $ 1 billion to face the YouTube anchor, stressing he hadn’t heard anything about a potential fight.
