Mike Tyson has done a lot of stuff in his time, from becoming the world heavyweight champion at 20, to his film cameos and questionable music endeavors. But now 'Iron Mike' has launched himself into the world of recreational marajuana, introducing his own strain called "KO Kush" which he produces on his 40-acre ranch in California.
It caught the attention of UFC superstar Conor McGregor, who met with the former boxer in Dublin to test the new strain. McGregor shared a few photos of he and Iron Mike smoking a joint of his home-grown strain along with a lengthy caption in which McGregor spoke about his respect for the boxing legend, burying the hatchet and staying "switched on."
The post reads:
"I went to see Mike Tyson last night in the Helix, Dublin, Ireland. I love and respect Mike Tyson. And I love the Helix. I won my first World Title here, and also my second. It was good to meet you Mike.
You spoke some things about me in the past which I did not like and I was happy to speak to you face to face, put it to bed and have some fun. You are in good spirits and I was happy to see this! I will always have the height of respect for you!
Some decisions you have made around your finances I do not agree with. As a fighter you must fight here. The most. And this is a fight that never ends. It is even a fight that we pass on to our next in line. Our blood line. Make sure you stay switched on with those around you at all times. You have good people around you now, I can tell. But stay switched on.
Your Marijuana strain that you grow on your own ranch “KO Kush” is really nice. It was an honour to taste it and I wish you and your team all the best with this endeavor.
Just remember, if someone tries to rip you. Rip their nose off their face. You are a fighting icon and deserve endless love and respect! And from me, you will always have it! Don’t let anyone take anything from you. You owe nobody nothing. It is you who is owed. Always remember that. I love you Mike! Iron Mike Tyson!"
