Mike Tyson has gone through one of the biggest falls from grace in the history of mankind, which wouldn’t have been possible without an incredible amount of cocaine. Tyson recently did a tell-all interview with Sports Illustrated’s Pablo Torre (seen here) that goes deeper into Tyson’s drug and sexcapades.
SI: I imagine you have a few stories from your days as a junkie.
Mike Tyson: Listen: I was in St. Tropez, in the South of France. In Ibiza, Spain. I was in Monte Carlo. I was in the Ukraine, Russia, all those places, for three months. From Russia I went to Lisbon, Portgual, from Portugal I went to Amsterdam. In Amsterdam I met this drug dealer, right? And he sees that I like getting high, and he wants to be my buddy, right? This guy goes and gets me a big rock of cocaine. So pretty soon I got a party going on. I got everything: I got these rugby players. I got these naked girls, I got all these … everything’s going on in the room. Plus I also had this girl with me that I picked up in Romania. But then [the dealer he met in Amsterdam] saw how much of a mess I was. He came in and kicked everybody out of my room! All the nude people, all the people having sex. He said, “I feel so bad I ever gave him that stuff.” –Sports Illustrated
Sweet sassy molassy that’s one hell of a story. Personally, I find Iron Mike to be one of the most interesting athletes in sports. You’d have some crazy stories if you went from being the youngest heavyweight champion in history to bat-sh*t-insane-pigeon-enthusiast. But, he might have something going there with the pigeons. They have so much tenacity when they do the rolls. A different species of young heavyweights after the jump.
