Mike Tyson Feeling No 'Hangover' From Going Vegan

Sure, Mike Tyson has a bit of a checkered past (to say the least), but you have to give a guy credit for trying to turn his life around.

Tyson is becoming an Ecorazzi regular of late, having previously promoted his newly-found vegan lifestyle on a billboard in Hollywood and gotten his own show about his love of pigeons (although PETA isn’t too thrilled about it).

In an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” to promote the release of “The Hangover: Part II,” Tyson discussed his veganism and went into the reasons behind it. As it turns out, it’s not all about the pigeons.

“My whole family’s obese,” Tyson told Kimmel. “I wanted to break that cycle…my children were gaining weight and stuff. I can’t just say, ‘Hey, you’re fat, lose weight, do this workout, do this and I’m 400 pounds.'”

Apparently Tyson’s family has a pretty serious history of obesity, so the former boxer thought that going vegan would be a good way to fight it. His billboard, which read “Love Animals, Don’t Eat Them,” suggests that Tyson’s also in it for the animal right as well, though.

So, can Tyson really “break the cycle” by avoiding animal products? It looks like it… so far, since going vegan, Tyson has lost a whopping 100 pounds!

Meanwhile, “The Hangover: Part II” just set the box office records for the biggest opening for a comedy helped fuel the biggest Memorial Day weekend ever, and could set the record for an R-rated movie of any kind with an estimated five-day total of $138.1 million. I guess things are going pretty well for the guy!

Check out the video of Tyson talking to Kimmel below:
