‘Iron’ Mike was recently joined by American rapper Tony Yayo for a podcast episode. And the rapper was eager to know about the potential upcoming movie based on the life of the former heavyweight champion. But, it seems like it wasn’t the day for him to know the answer to that question.

Yayo asked, “Mike, let me ask you a question. When is your movie you want to shoot?”  The former champ did not let Yayo finish his question and intervened with a rather odd fact. Tyson responded, “Can I ask you another question?” He then told the rapper that he used to eat starch when he didn’t have money. This revelation sent Yayo in total disbelief, and he was shocked to hear that. Tyson further reminded the rapper of the starch box. And all of this led the rapper to ask ‘Iron’ Mike again if he really used to eat that. And just like that, the conversation took a turn.
