Do you think Mike Tyson was just struggling because he was exhausted?

Given Tyson's long and extreme history of substance abuse, plus his current status as a cannabis mogul and $55,000 per month smoking habit, some viewers questioned whether "Iron Mike" was under the influence during the interview.

The boxer took to Twitter to explain why his appearance may have seem a bit off to those who were watching at home.

"Hey mate @piersmorgan @GMB @susannareid100 and UK". "Coaching laborious and going to mattress early".

Some of Mike's fan were quick to assure him, with one replying: "If people actually understood how physically and mentally tiring your training is they'd know why you were like that for the interview".

One American, two Russians blast off to International Space Station
A trio of astronauts reached the International Space Station in just three hours using a new fast track maneuver. That's according to the RIA Novosti agency citing communications between crew and the ground, broadcast by NASA.

"Good Morning Britain" presenter Piers Morgan, who is widely known to cause a stir on screen with his contentious views and gestures, got the attention of his admirers as he screamed in terror and mocked Laura Tobin and Ranvir Singh's horrified reaction to a mouse in the studio.

The 51-year-old fighter appeared on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast to discuss his upcoming fight and acknowledged that Tyson appears to have maintained the power which saw him twice become a heavyweight world boxing champion.

Tyson slurred his words, looked away from the camera, and at one point, he even appeared to doze off. To me, he was one of the most explosive, entertaining guys you'd want to see.

Due to their respective ages, there have been safety concerns, with the California State Athletic Commission - which has sanctioned the exhibition to take place in the state - ordering both fighters to refrain from trying to knock one another out.

These are rule changes which benefit Tyson, Jones said, adding that if he does anything about it his opponent's team will just sue him. "It's a fight we should have had sooner, but unfortunately we are having it now, and that's going to be awesome". "Mike Tyson did not sound a well man. #GMB".
