VADA will conduct a clean boxing program to keep up with the spirit of the sport and will pave the way for a clean fight between two veterans. However, a Boxing Scene report suggests that mari**** will not be included in the mix.

54-year-old Mike Tyson is well-known for having his own canna*** unit- ‘Tyson Ranch’ which deliberately produces Mari*** strains from California. Tyson also consumes it quite often in ‘Hotboxing’ podcast. Thus, he clearly has the samples in his body. If mari***** was included by VADA, it could have blocked the matchup.

That said, Tyson won’t have to worry about it now. At 54, Tyson is a habitual mari*** consumer who is looking for a way to get back inside the ring. Meanwhile, he claims himself to be fit and fine. Coming off a 15-year long break in the pro circuit, ‘Iron’ Mike has regained his physique and is excited about entering the ring. While we are less than a week away from the fight, Tyson’s ongoing social media activity continues to garner attention.
