MIKE TYSON left fans ‘concerned’ and fearing for his health after a ‘car crash’ Good Morning Britain interview.
The Baddest Man on the Planet was on to promote his November 28 comeback fight against Roy Jones Jr.
But rather than an acid-tongued quote machine, Tyson, 54, appeared to mumble his words and spoke incoherently, drooping his head several times and even closing his eyes.
Hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid looked uncomfortable during the chat this morning.
They continued through what one viewer labelled a ‘disaster of an interview’ filled with awkward pauses.
At one point, Reid asked Tyson what he thought of 51-year-old Jones Jr as a rival in the ring.
Tyson, who appeared groggy when he came in live from Los Angeles, mumbled back: “I don’t care what he says about me as an opponent.
“I’m just prepared to fight on Saturday night, November 28.”
One viewer watching from home said: “Mike Tyson absolutely hammered on his interview this morning.”
Another tweeted: “Absolute car crash of an interview on #gmb with Mike Tyson.”
TV presenter Alex Beresford posted: “Hoping Mike Tyson is just tired? This interview on @gmb.”
In response to Beresford, another viewer said: “I was just thinking the same. He certainly looks high on something. No way he should be fighting, surely?”
A fellow user wrote: “That was a shocking interview, he didn’t look or sound with it.”
And one tweet read: “That was more than tiredness, he was under the influence of something! Can’t believe they allowed the interview! Unprofessional.”
And another concerned fan wrote: “What did I just witness? Am I the only one who couldn’t understand one single word what @MikeTyson was saying?”
Tyson appeared at around 6.50am this morning, around 10.50pm for him in the States.
