Mike Tyson And Roy Jones Jr 'Won't Be Tested For Marijuana' For Their Exhibition Bout

Mike Tyson And Roy Jones Jr 'Won't Be Tested For Marijuana' For Their Exhibition Bout

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.

Mike Tyson Looks Absolutely Jacked Ahead Of His Charity Bout Against Roy Jones Jr

While Tyson isn't training like a man possessed for his long-awaited boxing comeback, he's busy running his highly-successful cannabis company Tyson Holistic Holdings.

And on top of that, his personal ranch - Tyson Ranch - seems to have taken off since its launch a few years back.

It's safe to say that the ageing warrior-turned-marijuana farmer likes to indulge in some recreational drug use here and there.

And if you've ever listened to his podcast, which is conveniently-named the "Hotboxin' Podcast", then you'd understand why.

But strange contract clauses aside, the charity bout between two boxing legends in their 50s is shaping up to be an interesting spectacle.

And with both men in tremendous shape and eager to make a statement, you wouldn't be surprised to see either fighter push the boundaries with that bizarre 'no knockouts' rule.
