Mike Tyson is on the road promoting his Animal Planet reality show “Taking On Tyson” the story of the boxer’s love for racing pigeons and speaking on his battle with weight and cocaine.
The Heavyweight champ was recently interviewed by Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush and Kit Hoover and was asked how he got back to his “fighting weight” after packing on pounds outside the ring.
According to Tyson he owes it all to a vegan lifestyle and not to drug use that made him a “fat crackhead.”
He tells Access Hollywood,
“I became a vegan, then I lost 140 pounds…I always thought if you did cocaine, you’d stay skinny. I didn’t know you’d turn into a fat crackhead, and you know it’s nothin’ like a fat crack-head. (Laughs)”
“Taking On Tyson” airs Sundays at10 p.m. EST.
