“He’s juiced up, but it’s fine. There won’t be any doping-control,” the 39-year-old Kharintonov said, Sport Express reported.

“He’s taken testosterone, and some kind of health products. There’s no resentment towards Tyson here for that. He’s 53 years old. How else could he have got into more or less top shape? Only on steroids, there’s no other option.”

The 30-7 fighter insisted the former ‘baddest man on the planet’ didn’t naturally achieve his chiselled body, based partly on his own experiments with drugs while serving in the army.

“Have I ever taken supplements? In the army yes. When everybody tried all different tablets. In my third or fourth year, when everybody weight trained, my friends brought nandrolone. I injected myself, to look good, to have a good body. I remember my muscles were like rocks.

“I looked in the mirror and realized it wasn’t for me. I stopped dabbling in that and don’t intend to. First, it’s bad for you. Secondly it’s illegal [in sport].”

Tyson isn’t fighting profesiionally so I don’t have any problems with him visiting an Age Clinic, if that’s what he has actually done to get jacked again.
