MIKE TYSON has revealed that he ‘died’ while tripping on psychedelic ‘Toad Venom’ – but he insisted that ‘death is beautiful’.

The 55-year-old boxing legend claims that ‘death is beautiful’

Last year the 55-year-old former heavyweight champion returned to the ring for an exhibition fight with Roy Jones Jr.

And the American revealed the psychedelic ‘Toad Venom’ drug helped inspire him to make a comeback.

The ‘toad’ is Bufo alvarius, a Mexico amphibian, otherwise known as the Sonoran Desert Toad, and spends seven months each year living underground.

When it is active, its venom can be smoked to produce a short psychoactive trip and has long been used in traditional healing rituals.

He told The Post at Wonderland: “I ‘died’ during my first trip. In my trips I’ve seen that death is beautiful.

“Life and death both have to be beautiful, but death has a bad rep.

“The toad has taught me that I’m not going to be here forever. There’s an expiration date.”

Tyson revealed he discovered it four years ago when he said he was 100lbs overweight and drinking and taking drugs heavily.

He added: “I did it as a dare. ,” Tyson recalled. “I was doing heavy drugs like cocaine, so why not?

“It’s another dimension. Before I did the toad, I was a wreck. The toughest opponent I ever faced was myself.

“I had low self-esteem. People with big egos often have low self-esteem. We use our ego to subsidise that. The toad strips the ego.”
