What was Mike Tyson’s pre-fight meal that never changed?
Tyson was able to answer some questions about his diet on GQ: Actually Me. The famous athlete explained,
“I don’t eat anything that has a mother or a father. If you were created through any kind of mother and father, through any kinda intercourse, I wouldn’t eat you. So that means I only eat vegetables and stuff.”
However, that is Tyson’s diet currently, but things didn’t always seem to be this way.

Only time will tell.
