Boxing legend, Mike Tyson has ditched his vegan diet and is scoffing bison and elk meat to prepare for a ring return.
The ex-world heavyweight champ, 54, hoped red meat will restore his stunning punching power.
Protein-packed steaks are making him strong again for his comeback against Roy Jones Jr, 51, in Carson, California, on November 28.
Tyson said of his vegan diet, “I stopped because of the training and because of what I wanted my body to look like and the strength that I wanted to pose”.
“I only eat elk and bison, wild stuff and I’m starting to feel fit.
“I realised the stuff that’s good for other people like kale, vegetables and blueberries but for me, is really poisonous.”
Tyson was speaking on the podcast of American comedian, Joe Rogan, an amateur hunter.
Rogan told Tyson, “I want to give you some of my elk. I’ve got three commercial freezers full”.
