‘Iron’ Mike Tyson, is known as one of the greatest boxers to ever put on a pair of gloves and has also making apperances for professional wrestling companies WWE and All Elite Wrestling in the past as well. In a new feature with The Guardian, the former heavyweight champion of the world discussed his use of psychadellic drugs and how they have helped him not only with his mental health but have also made Tyson a ‘happier’ version of himself. This Mike Tyson Vs Jake Paul PPV rumor leaked not too long ago.
Speaking to the outlet via e-mail, Tyson said the following remarks. “I believe if I’d been introduced to the benefit of psychedelics for therapeutic use early in my professional career, I would have been a lot more stable in life. I had a lot of public outbursts and they were all mental illness related. Prescription drugs meant I didn’t feel like myself but with psychedelics I feel I’m a happier, lighter version of me.”
Tyson is currently on the board of Wesana Health, an emerging life sciences company championing the development and delivery of therapies, including psychedelics, to treat traumatic brain injury and related conditions. Their CEO is former NHL player and enforcer Daniel Carcillo and with the overall goal to allow the use of psychedelics in boxing.
