Russian MMA Fighter: Mike Tyson Is ‘Juiced Up’ On Steroids, Wants To Fight Him

Mike Tyson vs. Russian Bellator heavyweight Sergei Kharitonov who just called out Iron Mike for using steroids? USA vs. Russia. HERE WE GOOOOOO. Folks, there’s no turning back now after word gets to Tyson that Kharitonov is taking juicing shots at Mike, 53, and saying there’s no way the former heavyweight champion of the world could get in fighting shape without help.

Kharitonov, 39, made his bold claim via a Russian sports site.

“He’s juiced up, but it’s fine. There won’t be any doping-control,” the 39-year-old Kharintonov said, Sport Express reported.

“He’s taken testosterone, and some kind of health products. There’s no resentment towards Tyson here for that. He’s 53 years old. How else could he have got into more or less top shape? Only on steroids, there’s no other option.”

“Have I ever taken supplements? In the army yes. When everybody tried all different tablets. In my third or fourth year, when everybody weight trained, my friends brought nandrolone. I injected myself, to look good, to have a good body. I remember my muscles were like rocks.

“I looked in the mirror and realized it wasn’t for me. I stopped dabbling in that and don’t intend to. First, it’s bad for you. Secondly it’s illegal [in sport].”

Sergei, who hasn’t fought since losing at Bellator 234, issued a statement that I don’t understand, but the caption reads, “Dream fight” and then a bunch of tags. I’m going to need Sergei to at least learn the line, “Mike Tyson is a juiced up fraud.” That’s it, one line. Say it on ESPN, FS1, etc. The fight will sell itself and we’ll have ourselves a little Cold War battle rumble. 

Tyson, who hasn’t fought since losing to Kevin McBride in 2005, has said he’d be willing to do exhibition fights with his profits going to charity. The name Evander Holyfield has also been brought up for one of those fights so it’s possible both fighters would get a tune up before meeting in Tyson-Holyfield 3…in an opened Vegas? How crazy would that be? 2020 has been weird, we might as well keep it going.
