‘It was my fault!’ – Mike Tyson says painkillers made him FALL ASLEEP during live interview with Piers Morgan

MIKE TYSON has blamed painkillers for falling asleep during a live TV interview with Piers Morgan.

The boxing legend admitted the situation was “a mess” and added: “It was my fault.”

Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid watched shock as Mike Tyson nodded off

The ex-heavyweight king’s head slumped down as he nodded off when Morgan and fellow presenter Susanna Reid questioned him on Good Morning Britain in November 2020.

Tyson, now 56 and the owner of huge cannabis empire, was promoting his shock comeback fight with another all-time great, Roy Jones Jr.

And quizzed by Morgan again this week on Talk TV, he explained his previous dozy behaviour.

Morgan pointed out the Brooklyn bruiser looked much more “perky” now.

And when he asked Tyson what happened, the ‘Baddest Man on the Planet’ was for once happy to be the fall guy.

Tyson said: “I had hurt myself at that particular time. I was training.

“I received some painkillers from my wife and after I received these painkillers I was just incapable of articulating anything.

“It was just a mess.”

Morgan jokily urged Tyson to take “the rap” because: “People thought I was so boring as an interviewer that I’d literally driven you to sleep.”

And a laughing Tyson replied: “It was my fault, everybody. It was my fault!”
