Mike Tyson admits he smoked cannabis before Roy Jones Jr fight as 54-year-old legend reveals he ‘can’t stop’

MIKE TYSON admitted he smoked cannabis before his comeback fight against Roy Jones and revealed: 'I can't stop'.

The heavyweight legend boxed to a draw on Saturday night in what turned out to be a bizarre eight-round exhibition bout.

Both men - who had a combined age of 105 - were drug tested by Voluntary Anti-Doping Association beforehand.

But cannabis was not included and 54-year-old Tyson took full advantage with a pre-fight blaze.

He revealed: “Listen, I can’t stop smoking.

“I smoked during fights. I just have to smoke. I’m sorry. I’m a smoker.

"I smoke every day. I never stopped smoking.”

Tyson would have appreciated the undercard performances as Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa appeared to smoke a blunt on stage.

Many felt the iconic puncher - fighting for the first time in 15 years - should have got the win on points.

But he warned fans it will not be the last of him as he plots more fights on his comeback trail.

He said: "I’m just happy I got this under my belt.

“I’m continuing to go further and do more. Absolutely.

"We gotta do this again."

Mike Tyson says he's happy he's not knocked out and Roy Jones says everything hurt as it made contact with Tyson after their fight
