Mike Tyson eases fan fears over health after slurring car crash GMB interview as boxing legend claims 'I just woke up'

MIKE TYSON has eased fans' fears after his 'car crash' interview on Good Morning Britain – by blaming his incoherent appearance on being tired.

The American legend, 54, was on to promote his November 28 comeback fight against Roy Jones Jr.

But Tyson seemed anything but his usual, energetic self, mumbling his words and speaking incoherently to hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid.

The Baddest Man on the Planet even drooped his head several times and closed his eyes at points.

But Tyson revealed it was simply down to tiredness, with the interview taking place late in the evening for the Los Angeles-based star.

Tyson tweeted: “Hey mate @piersmorgan @GMB @susannareid100 and UK.

"I tried to stay up late for interview but fell asleep and like a lion I'm hard to wake once sleep.  

“Training hard and going to bed early.

"I had no monitor so I couldn't see you guys and forgot to look into camera."

Morgan replied to Tyson, saying he appreciated the update given the outpour of worry from his fans.

The Good Morning Britain host tweeted: "No problem, Champ.

"We could see you were a bit weary! It was very late in LA.

"Appreciate this message as some viewers were concerned."

A few days ago, Tyson shared an epic promo video ahead of his comeback fight against Jones Jr.

Tyson uploaded the video – directed by Triller – to his Instagram.

The clip features Brit boxer Chris Eubank Jr talking up Jones's training skills.

Tyson then chips in with: "All great fighters can't be great trainers, it takes a very special person to be a great trainer."
