Nick Kyrgios posts photo with Mike Tyson, who appears to be smoking marijuana

Nick Kyrgios met with boxing legend Mike Tyson, who appeared to be smoking marijuana in their photo taken. Last week, Kyrgios announced he wouldn't be competing at the Ultimate Tennis Showdown (UTS) in Los Angeles over the weekend.

Still, Kyrgios went to the UTS as a guest. In Los Angeles, Kyrgios met one of the greatest sporting icons of all time. "Perfect chaos," Kyrgios captioned his post.

Will Kyrgios be a guest on Tyson's podcast?

Tyson hosts Hotboxin' with Mike Tyson and Kyrgios hinted that he is set to appear on the podcast.

"If you could ask Mike Tyson 1 question…. What would it be," Kyrgios tweeted.

Meanwhile, the last few weeks haven't been easy for Kyrgios.

After being forced to withdraw from two grass tournaments leading up to Wimbledon, Kyrgios was also forced to miss The Championships due to a wrist injury. For Kyrgios, missing Wimbledon - where he was a finalist in 2022 - was heartbreaking.

“Hey everyone, I’m really sad to say that I have to withdraw from Wimbledon this year. I tried my hardest to be ready after my surgery and to be able to step on the Wimbledon courts again. During my comeback, I experienced some pain in my wrist during the week of Mallorca.

As a precaution I had it scanned and it came back showing a torn ligament in my wrist. I tried everything to be able to play and I am disappointed to say that I just didn’t have enough time to manage it before Wimbledon.

I’ll be back, and as always, I appreciate the support from all my fans," Kyrgios announced just before the start of Wimbledon. After missing Wimbledon, Kyrgios also withdrew from the UTS in Los Angeles. Through the first seven months of the season, Kyrgios has appeared in just one tournament. It remains to be seen if Kyrgios will be able to start his summer on hard courts on time.
