The former heavyweight champ has been involved in numerous scandals both inside and outside the ring. However after some time rebranding himself he has regained favor in the sports world, leading to a ton of excitement for his imminent return to competition against Roy Jones Jr.

Mike Tyson Admits To Using Whizzinator
As important as it is to note the changes that Mike Tyson has gone through to overcome who he once was, it is also interesting for him to look back on some of the crazy things he used to do. This happened recently, when he was speaking on a podcast with the UFC’s anti-doping expert Jeff Novitzsky. Here, “Iron” Mike actually admitted to using a Whizzinator, which is a tool used to mimick the actions of urinating, while using fake or substituted urine, in order to pass a drug test. Not only did he admit to using one, but he actually said that he used his wife’s and his baby’s urine to pass his tests.
“It was awesome, man,” Tyson said. (h/t MMA Mania) “I put my baby’s urine in it. And sometimes, one time I was using my wife’s and my wife was like ‘Baby you better not hope that it comes back pregnant or something.’ And I said nah, so we ain’t gonna use you any more, we’re gonna use the kid. Cuz I got scared that the piss might come back pregnant.”
“I think that’s happened before,” Novitzky added. “A male provided a urine sample and it came back and they said ‘Sir, you’re pregnant. Either you’re pregnant or this is somebody else’s urine.’”
“That was what I was afraid of,” Tyson laughed. “I guess I heard of this happening because I was afraid of that.”
“Did you have the right color whizzinator?” Novitzky asked. “Because there was that NFL guy last season with a white one.”
“Yeah, hell yeah, I had a brown one,” Tyson said. “This guy was so f**king macho, he was scared. I whipped it out and he was like turning, ‘Hey man take the f**king cup.’ This macho guy, he didn’t want to look at me and s**t.”
This is certainly a crazy story for Mike Tyson to admit to. It is admittedly a bit gross of him to use his baby’s urine in order to pass these tests. Although it does make you wonder how bad his partying was back in the day, to make him need to use a Whizzinator.
