The meme got popular after Sanders was pictured sitting at the swearing-in ceremony of America’s latest President, Joe Biden. Since then, people have let their creative side take over, and Sanders has featured in every scenario possible.

What is Hotboxin with Mike Tyson?

The legendary boxer started his podcast in 2018 and has not restricted his guests only to boxing. He has guests from every walk of life. The podcast has gained global fame in recent years and has been in the news for the past couple of weeks.

This is down to the guests who had joined ‘Iron Mike’ on the show. First, it was lightweight super-star, Ryan Garcia. On the show, Garcia caused a huge stir by intensifying his call out to Gervonta Davis. The pair even had a fiery face-time in the presence of the legendary boxer.

New lightweight king Teofimo Lopez was another fighter who joined him on the show. That episode made the headlines as Lopez revealed that Tyson had signed his WBC lightweight franchise champion belt as ‘the best fighter in the world’.

So being in the headlines is nothing new for the podcast. However, we’re sure many fans were not expecting this reason for the show to go viral.

Despite this, given the wide variety of guests he’s had on the show, it is not impossible that someone like Bernie Sanders joins him for an episode.

Do you think an episode of Hotboxin with Mike Tyson and Bernie Sanders could happen?
