The long-awaited return of Mike Tyson is almost upon us.
The “Baddest Man on the Plant” is set to go toe-to-toe with former world champ Roy Jones Jr in a charity boxing bout on November 28 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
But the event has come under fire in recent weeks after multiple reports emerged regarding the strange clauses in the fight contract.
While one report suggested that there would be strictly ‘no knockouts’ during the heavweight clash, the latest rumour to hit the news is perhaps the most questionable.
According to BoxingScene, drug testing for marijuana “won’t be included”.
It’s understood the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA) will test for every other performance enhancing drug prior to and after the event – but weed won’t be one of them.
And, well, there’s a pretty good reason for that.
