Mike Tyson has launched a new cannabis range inspired by his undisputed boxing career, dubbing it the “baddest cannabis on the planet”.
The American has run his own ranch in California since 2017, growing the drug which is legal in the USA.
It came after a 20-year career in the ring which saw him become the youngest ever heavyweight champion at 20 in 1986.
And Tyson’s fighting spirit has seen him launch a new cannabis product on the market.
"The Baddest Cannabis on The Planet is only available at Planet 13. Listen, you don't want to miss this," said Mike Tyson, the founder of Tyson Ranch.
The heavyweight has worked in partnership with Nevada-based company Planet 13 Holdings, the world’s largest cannabis dispensary to launch “Undisputed 87”.

This is a reference to the American’s win against Tony Tucker in August 1987, winning the WBA, WBC and IBF titles to become unified.
It was set up with The Ranch Companies, founded by Tyson and his business partner Rob Hickman.
Rickman, the CEO, said: "Undisputed87 is an ode to the legacy Mike left not only in Vegas but in the world of fighting.
“We knew there was no better place to launch this brand than the cannabis SuperStore that is Planet 13.

David Farris, VP of Sales and Marketing, said: “We are the only dispensary on the planet that has thousands of tourists and cannabis aficionados from all over the world visit daily, making Planet 13 the perfect place for any brand looking to create a national reputation.
“We’ve been supporters of Mike Tyson for a long time.
