"I feel that it is only fair and right and for the good of boxing to keep the titles active and allow the other contenders to fight for the vacant belts that I proudly won and held as the undefeated heavyweight champion of the world when I defeated the long-standing champion Wladimir Klitschko," Tyson said in the statement. 

"I now enter another big challenge in my life which I know, like against Klitschko, I will conquer."

1006-mike-vs-tyson-poster-Xenon-Pictures-01The producers of a Mike Tyson documentary straight-up jacked photos from the Tyson-Holyfield bout for the film ... so claims the photographer in a new lawsuit.

Blackburn's suing for a cut of the profits and other damages.

A spokesperson for Xenon Pictures tells TMZ ... the company licensed the film from a production company in the UK and says the licensor "fully warranted that all material used in the program (including the photos allegedly belonging to the plaintiff) were properly purchased."

"I tried drugs ... many kinds of drugs, all kinds of drugs," Pacquiao reportedly said during an interview in his senate office in the Philippines. 

He noted the drug use occurred "before I became a champion."
