Mike Tyson Sparks Health Concerns With His Slurring & Incoherent Interview

Mike Tyson Sparks Health Concerns With His Slurring & Incoherent Interview”

The 54-year-old boxing legend joined Piers Morgan on Tuesday to discuss his upcoming exhibition match against Roy Jones Jr. but viewers were left confused as Tyson appeared to slur his words and lean forward.

Some viewers questioned whether Tyson was high on drugs with social media lighting up with concerns about his health. The chat took place at around 11 p.m. Monday in Los Angeles, where Tyson is training. "I tried to stay up late for interview but fell asleep and like a lion I'm hard to wake once asleep", he said in the tweet.

"Good Morning Britain" presenter Piers Morgan, who is widely known to cause a stir on screen with his contentious views and gestures, got the attention of his admirers as he screamed in terror and mocked Laura Tobin and Ranvir Singh's horrified reaction to a mouse in the studio.

He also harked back to Tyson's famous second fight with Evander Holyfied in 1997, when he was disqualified for biting his ear, saying that he feels safer wearing headphones for the exhibition match because his opponent might bite his ear. "I had no monitor so I couldn't see you guys and forgot to look into camera".

Morgan replied: "No problem, Champ". "We may see you have been a bit tired!" It was very late in LA. Appreciate this news as some viewers have been concerned.

The awkward scenes prompted fans to speculate that Tyson had been indulging in his well-known fondness for marijuana, or was simply exhausted due to the eight-hour time difference with the United Kingdom, making it late in the evening on the US West Coast.

"I simply wanna do that, I plan on doing this for a charity (inaudible)", Tyson started one response.

British radio host Mike Graham said that as a fellow journalist he was "ashamed" of the interview and slammed Morgan for putting Tyson to air.

Tyson's exhibition match against Jones is scheduled to take place November 28 at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California. "What on earth were the producers thinking?"
