Mike Tyson has claimed that he underwent stem-cell treatment several years ago, which transformed his body but left him feeling “weird ever since”.
Former heavyweight champion Tyson was one of the most physically intimidating boxers of all-time, boasting tremendous speed and devastating power throughout his career.
However, following his retirement from boxing in 2005, Tyson moved away from the sport entirely and began to gain weight.
This all changed several years ago, when Tyson made the decision to turn his life around and get back into fighting shape.
Alongside changing his diet and daily routine, Tyson recently stated that he underwent stem-cell therapy to aid his body transformation.
In recently resurfaced footage of an interview with LL Cool J on SiriusXM last year, via The Sun, Tyson told the rapper about undergoing the therapy, which aims to repair damaged cells within the body and treat or prevent illness.
“Yes. As they took the blood it was red and when it came back it was almost transfluid (sic),” Tyson claimed.
“I could almost see through the blood, and then they injected it in me.
“And I’ve been weird ever since, I’ve got to get balanced now.”

Since undergoing his incredible body transformation, Tyson has returned to boxing with incredible results.
He recently competed for the first time in over a decade-and-a-half in an exhibition bout against fellow legend Roy Jones Jr. While Jones looked out of shape, Tyson looked in peak condition.
While the bout was deemed a draw, Tyson won the bout in most viewers’ eyes and impressed throughout the contest.
After the pay-per-view success of his bout with Jones Jr, Iron Mike is expected to return to the ring again, either later this year or early next year.
An opponent has not yet been announced, however, Tyson has been training intensely with coach Rafael Cordeiro and looks ready for another fight very soon.
