‘Iron Mike’ said he was high on marijuana and alcohol when he was pulled over by a police car

‘So I pull up, I go on the kerb… boom boom! Oh s***! The cop turns and looks and he goes, “Oh s*** Mike Tyson! F****** hell!”

Tyson explained that he asked the officer to help him get to a destination, and the officer obliged.  

‘So I said, “Sir, can you help me get to this address?” Then he took me to the f****** address where the drug spot was and I said, “Thank you sir” and I was free!

‘Oh s***! I’m high as a motherf*****.’

Tyson has been training ahead of a proposed return to boxing, 15 years after he retired from the sport that he dominated for the best part of 20 years. 

‘Iron Mike’ has posted footage of himself working out and looking in great shape, with his blistering speed and power showcased in the videos. 

It is thought that he will participate in exhibition bouts for charity, and a number of former heavyweights have come forward to say they’d like to share the ring with him.

Evander Holyfield has said he’d like to face Tyson a third time while Shannon Briggs has also expressed an interest.
