When you think of Mike Tyson, you will likely think of three things: a devastating right hand, an immensely talented fighter and Hangover II.
However, he’s now about to embark on a new business venture as he is set to launch his own cannabis company.
His new venture is to be called ‘Undisputed87’, which pays homage to Tyson’s incredible boxing achievements.
At 20 years old, Tyson became the youngest ever unified heavyweight champion as he defeated Tony Tucker in 1987 to claim the WBA, WBC and IBF belts.
“The Baddest Cannabis on The Planet is only available at Planet 13. Listen, you don’t want to miss this,” Tyson stated, as per The Mirror.
Tyson already owns a cannabis farm in California, which opened in 2017, where growing the drug is legal. However, the new business was recently set up with The Ranch Company and founded by Tyson himself and his business partner Rob Hickman.
The product will be exclusively available to purchase from Planet 13, which is situated on the strip in Las Vegas.
Hickman 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.
“We are extremely excited about this exclusive partnership and bringing Mike back to Vegas.”
David Farris, the VP of sales and marketing, spoke of his excitement of bringing both the brand but also Mike Tyson back to Las Vegas.
“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.
