We’re well past the point where Mike Tyson can say anything truly shocking about his life and career, but that doesn’t mean the former heavyweight champion isn’t trying.
His latest attempt came in a recent episode of his Hotboxin’ podcast in which he discussed drug tests with UFC vice president of athlete health Jeff Novitzky, and how he ducked them as a boxer. Specifically, he talked about how he used the infamous “Whizzinator,” a fake penis used to deliver someone else’s urine even under the eye of a drug tester.
Tyson said he used his wife’s urine instead of his own at first, but later started using his infant son’s urine.
From MMA Mania:
“It was awesome, man,” Tyson said. “I put my baby’s urine in it. And sometimes, one time I was using my wife’s and my wife was like, ‘Baby you better not hope that it comes back pregnant or something.’ And I said nah, so we ain’t gonna use you any more, we’re gonna use the kid. Cuz I got scared that the piss might come back pregnant.”
“I think that’s happened before,” Novitzky added. “A male provided a urine sample and it came back and they said, ‘Sir, you’re pregnant. Either you’re pregnant or this is somebody else’s urine.’”
“That was what I was afraid of,” Tyson laughed. “I guess I heard of this happening because I was afraid of that.”
Tyson also confirmed he had the right color Whizzinator, unlike some other users. He apparently delighted in making a drug tester uncomfortable:
“Yeah, hell yeah, I had a brown one,” Tyson said. “This guy was so f**king macho, he was scared. I whipped it out and he was like turning, ‘Hey man take the f**king cup.’ This macho guy, he didn’t want to look at me and s**t.”
Per MMA Mania, Tyson had previously admitted in his 2013 book “Undisputed Truth” to using a Whizzinator throughout his career to avoid testing positive for cocaine and marijuana. The latter drug ended costing up him $200,000 back in 2001, so the device apparently wasn’t always successful.
In conclusion, drug testers might want to be extra careful with Tyson ahead of his exhibition bout against Roy Jones Jr. on Nov. 28.
