Mike Tyson admits to being high on drugs during major fights and using a fake penis to beat testers

Controversial boxing legend Mike Tyson has admitted being high during major fights and using a fake penis filled with another person’s urine to fool drug-testers in his warts-and-all autobiography.

The former world champion revealed the shocking revelations in his book ‘Undisputed Truth’, published on Tuesday, and said he was hooked on cocaine and marijuna for a large part of his troubled career.

Now retired, Tyson details his insatiable appetite for drink and drugs, which dated back to trying cocaine at the tender age of 11 and tasting alcohol as a baby in New York.

‘I was a full-blown cokehead,’ the 47-year-old wrote. He also admitted he was high on drugs for fights against Danny Williams in 2004 and the 2000 clash with Lou Savarese.

Confessing he had taken ‘blow’ and ‘pot’ before the Savarese fight , he said: ‘I had to use my whizzer, which was a fake penis where you put in someone’s clean urine to pass your drug test.’
