Mike Tyson made an interesting admission on his podcast, when he had the UFC’s drug czar Jeff Novitzky as a guest. According to the 54-year-old former heavyweight boxing champion, he previously used a “Whizzinator” — a prosthetic penis with urine in it — to fool a drug tester.
Here’s how the exchange went with him and Novitsky.
“It was awesome, man,” Tyson said on his Hotboxin’ podcast (transcript via 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. ‘Cause 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.”
While more context on the story wasn’t discussed, Tyson — who never failed a drug test in his sporting career — was asked in the episode if he ever did performance enhancing drugs. The boxing legend replied by saying he just regularly did marijuana, because it helped calm him down and relax the night before fights.
Tyson is set to return from retirement to box Roy Jones Jr. on November 28.
