Former heavyweight champ Iron Mike says he is no longer the ‘toxic and dangerous’ man he was
MIKE TYSON claims he is no longer the monster he was after after smoking toad venom.
The 52-year-old former heavyweight king is building a cannabis resort and is a huge advocate for the medicinal benefits of the drug.
But it was DMT, found in the Sonoran Desert toad of northern Mexico, that blew his mind at the start of 2019 and buried the human wrecking ball that helped build his fame and fortune.
In an emotionally charged and tearful interview, available in the UK on ESPN Player, Iron Mike said: “I don’t want to be that monster when I die, I don’t want to be remembered as that guy. He is very toxic and dangerous for my family and my wife. He doesn’t care about them but they are all I care about.
“But I know what it took to make that guy and the experiences we went through to make him so I know he will not disappear overnight.
“I really don’t have much regret. My violence, my drug habits, my reckless sexual escapades, my street fights and car accidents, all that time is over and I am still here
