Heavyweight boxing legend Mike Tyson has admitted he previously used his child’s urine to pass drug tests.
The UFC Vice President of Athlete Health and Performance / USADA liaison Jeff Novitzky appeared on a recent episode of Tyson’s Hotboxin podcast. Novitzky is referred to by many as ‘The Golden Snitch’ and is tasked with helping the UFC keep their organization drug free.
During the chat ‘Iron Mike’ explains how he previously used a ‘Whizzinator’ to avoid failing drug tests. For anyone unfamiliar a Whizzinator is a fake prosthetic penis with a tube that links to a bag which can be filled with any liquid you like – most commonly for athletes its clean urine. It became popular as athletes are often made to provide a urine sample in front of drug testers in effort to avoid cheating.
“It was awesome, man,” Tyson said of the Whizzinator. “I put my baby’s urine in it. And sometimes, one time I was using my wife’s and my wife was like ‘Baby you better not hope that it comes back pregnant or something.’ And I said nah, so we ain’t gonna use you any more, we’re gonna use the kid. Cuz I got scared that the piss might come back pregnant.”
“I think that’s happened before,” Novitzky added. “A male provided a urine sample and it came back and they said ‘Sir, you’re pregnant. Either you’re pregnant or this is somebody else’s urine.’”
“That was what I was afraid of,” Tyson laughed. “I guess I heard of this happening because I was afraid of that.”
“Did you have the right color whizzinator?” Novitzky asked. “Because there was that NFL guy last season with a white one.”
“Yeah, hell yeah, I had a brown one,” Tyson said. “This guy was so f**king macho, he was scared. I whipped it out and he was like turning, ‘Hey man take the f**king cup.’ This macho guy, he didn’t want to look at me and s**t.” (Transcribed by MMA Mania)
