Boxing great and former world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson recently spilled the beans on how he literally used to take the piss out of drug tests by wearing prosthetic manhood filled with wife’s urine, and then later that of his child, to avoid testing positive during his career.
Speaking with Jeff Novitzky, the Vice President of Athlete Health and Performance for the UFC, on his Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson podcast, the retired boxer spoke about his usage of the “whizzinator” – the prosthetic penis some people wear so as to pass off another person’s urine as theirs to avoid a positive drug test, CBS Sports reported.
“It was awesome, man,” said Tyson. “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.”

Responding to Tyson’s “precautionary” alternative after the pregnancy concern, Novitzky recalled an experience where the urine sample of a male sportsman tested positive for pregnancy.
“That was what I was afraid of,” Tyson said. “I guess I heard of this happening because I was afraid of that.”
He also asked Tyson if he was circumspect about the color and likeness of the whizzinator to a real penis, as a former NFL star was exposed for his lack of hindsight.
“Yeah, hell yeah, I had a brown one,” Tysson responded. “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.”
Though Tyson did not reveal the drugs he was trying to keep authorities from spotting in his urine, he admitted using the whizzinator throughout his career to avoid getting caught for his cocaine and marijuana usage in his 2013 Undisputed Truth book, Yahoo Sports reported.
