Cannabis tycoon Mike Tyson smokes dodgy-looking cigarette at Super Bowl party

Cannabis tycoon Mike Tyson was pictured smoking a dodgy-looking cigarette at a Superbowl pool party in Tampa.

'Iron Mike' joined revellers at WTR Pool and Grill in the Florida city ahead of Sunday's NFL showdown between Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Kansas City Chiefs.

The former undisputed heavyweight king runs a cannabis empire from his Tyson Ranch in California, where marijuana is legal.

And he was seen kicking back and enjoying a smoke as he prepared to watch the Superbowl – although it was not clear what was in the cigarette.

Tyson is believed to earn around £500,000-per-month from his 418-acre ranch, according to The Sun.

The 54-year-old and business partner Rob Hickman are said to offer premium marijuana strains, edibles and extracts.

But Tyson previously revealed he has stopped taking cocaine and drinking alcohol.

The youngest heavyweight champion, Tyson recently returned to the ring when he fought out a draw in an eight-round exhibition match against Roy Jones Jr, 52.

And he was taking a break from training in Tampa as he prepares for his next fight.

Tyson could step into the ring against his old foe Evander Holyfield once more following their clashes in both 1996 and 1997.

It is understood the two are in talks for a trilogy rematch in Dubai.

Holyfield, now 58, won their first fight with an 11th-round stoppage – while Tyson was famously disqualified in the rematch after biting off a chunk of his rival's ear.

'The Real Deal' Holyfield recently told The Sun : "Where an opportunity is available, I like to make the best out of what I have.

“I believe if I fought Mike the fight will generate $200million. It will be the biggest fight there is. That’s the honest truth. I think Mike has my message already.

“If he is going to do it he is, if not then he’s not. It’s a decision he has to make now and we both have to be in an agreement.

"I’m not going to tell anybody what I’m going to do – my strategy I’m planning on using against Mike – I don’t want anyone to know. I’m happy if Mike fights me."
