Tyson, now fifty two years old, was on hand to present the Best Sports Podcast award, which came just after he made some shocking admissions on Joe Rogan’ podcast The Joe Rogan Experience on Thursday.
During The Joe Rogan Experience podcast, he first revealed that he’s never had a cup of coffee in his life, which is strange considering how much drugs he did.
‘All the drugs I did, you’d think coffee would be nothing,’ Tyson said, before he opened up about when he first tried drugs.
‘I was a kid, 10 years old, 9 years old. Smoking and drinking,’ Tyson said. ‘As I got older, I tried acid, probably 11. Real young.’
Tyson added that, by the time he became the youngest heavyweight champion in history at just 20 years old, he wasn’t doing drugs anymore, just, ‘drinking a lot.
He added that he would go clean when he was training for a fight, but once the fight was over, ‘I’m an animal.’
One of the craziest stories he told involved the time when he was talked into buying three tiger cubs.
While Tyson was in prison, he was talking to a car dealer, who mentioned he was going to trade in some cars for horses.
When the dealer said the buyer/trader had other animals like tiger cubs, Tyson was intrigued.
‘The guy said, “Man, imagine how cool that would be if you were in an Aston Martin or a Ferrari and you had a tiger right next to you,” and I’m a young guy,’ Tyson said.
‘I’m in prison saying, “Wow, that would be cool. Get me some cubs man.” So when I came home, I had those cubs right there waiting for me,’ he added.
Tyson still makes people scratch their heads.
