Fans Reckon Mike Tyson Was 'Too High To Speak' During Recent Hotboxin’ Podcast With Khabib Nurmagomedov

Podcast line-ups don't come much better than Mike Tyson, Khabib Nurmagomedov and Henry Cejudo.

With three of the finest combat sports legends all in one room sharing their endless knowledge, it's hard to imagine people would find something to complain about.

Well, it seems not everyone was happy with the latest episode of Tyson's Hotboxin' podcast, with some fans slamming Iron Mike for being "too high to speak" throughout it.

It's no secret that the 'Baddest Man on the Planet' likes to dabble in a bit of marijuana.

The former boxing heavyweight champ actually runs his own cannabis ranch which manufactures marijuana as well as various other weed-related products.

The 55-year-old has spoken openly of his personal use in the past and even launched his own podcast in recent years, aptly named 'Hotboxin with Mike Tyson'.

When the latest guest on his popular podcast was revealed to be former undefeated UFC lightweight champion Khabib, listeners were waiting in anticipation for the episode to air.

But when the hour-long chat was finally posted online, a bunch of fans were left disappointed, claiming that host Tyson was "too high".

While he wasn't seen sparking up during the episode itself, some fans assumed he got high before filming with Khabib - who is a devout Muslim and doesn't take any illicit substances.

One YouTube user commented: "Mike Tyson is high AF sitting there!"

While another added: "Mike's been visiting the spiritual realm. He was there in physical form, but spiritually, he was on another planet."

But perhaps the most damning assessment came from one person, who said: "Are we just gonna ignore the fact that Mike apparently smoked the whole bag of weed before the podcast to not disrespect Khabib while talking to him, but it ended in Mike just not talking for almost the whole podcast because he's high asf?"

People certainly picked up on the fact that Tyson seemed, shall we say, a bit off.

That said, fans didn't shy away from heaping praise on Tyson's good friend and fellow co-host Henry Cejudo who "carried the podcast" in some peoples' eyes.

But while critics were emerging thick and fast, it should be noted that the episode with Khabib is actually the most successful Hotboxin' podcast to date with just under 2.5million views on YouTube alone.
