Mike Tyson Shows Off Pigeon Racing Skills in New Show
The former boxing champ is a bird-racer at heart, he says
March 06, 2011It might not be as “fashionable as the Kardashians,” but former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson says people will learn to love his new television show about pigeon racing.
It's no joke. While Tyson has appeared in a number of comedy movies and shorts recently -- "The Hangover" and a remake of Bobby Brown's "Every Little Step" music video with Wayne Brady -- his zeal for the birds is real.
The show, 'Taking on Tyson,' which premieres Sunday night on Animal Planet, showcases the tough man’s longtime hobby and passion. He plans to show the world some secrets of the mostly underground subculture of pigeon racing, which he’s been involved with since he was a child.
