The highly-anticipated match at the Staples Center in Los Angeles ended as a draw following eight two-minute rounds.

The legendary fighters both had to enroll with the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA) ahead of their respective ring returns, and now it has been confirmed that each man’s sample was clear.

That is according to the Mirror, who state VADA do not test for cannabinoids.

And Tyson has even admitted since that smoked cannabis on November 28 – the day of the fight.

The Baddest Man on the Planet said: “Listen, I can’t stop smoking.

“I smoked during fights. I just have to smoke. I’m sorry. I’m a smoker.”

Many felt Tyson had done enough to beat Jones Jr but the judges were split.

But Tyson insisted he would pull on the gloves again next year, saying: “My body feels splendid – I want to beat it up some more.

“Maybe (next) we do something in the south of France – Monaco or San Tropez and we do something out there with one of the European fighters.

“Anything is possible; the sky’s the limit. I believe we broke all the records on pay-per-view concerning boxing.

“I just want to continue doing this from a humanitarian perspective.”

Both fighters are set to rake in a fortune for their efforts after over 1.6 million fans tuned in to watch them fight.

BT Sport Box Office showed it in the UK for a price of £19.95.

Social media site Triller aired the pay-per-view for a cost of $50 (£37) in the US.

According to RT, Triller stand to make £60m as over 1.6m fans tuned in to watch it.

And that could lead to Tyson pocketing over £7.5m with Jones Jr set to earn at least £2.2m.
