Mike Tyson's Interview On Good Morning Britain Was An Absolute Disaster

Mike Tyson's Interview On Good Morning Britain Was An Absolute Disaster

Mike Tyson's interview with Good Morning Britain was an absolute car-crash.

The former heavyweight champion was on the ITV chat show to talk about his upcoming return to the ring on November 28 when he takes on Roy Jones Jr in an exhibition bout.

He complained about his earpiece being too loud, had little insight to give on the Black Lives Matter movement or his relationship with president Donald Trump - and didn't exactly do a great job to hype up his big return inside the ropes.

Tyson repeatedly touched his head and was breathing heavily. Some viewers thought the incredibly awkward interview stemmed from 'Iron Mike' being drunk or high from smoking marijuana:

Originally slated for September 12 before it was postponed, Tyson will lock horns with fellow boxing great Jones Jr at Dignity Health Park, Carson in an eight-round exhibition at the end of November.

The set of rules look set to be very different, with the duo poised to wear heavier gloves as well as no judges scoring the fight.
