Mike Tyson’s Pigeon Show “Taking on Tyson” To Premier on Animal Planet

by Robert Littal | Posted on Thursday, January 6th, 2011

This had been in production for a long time, but it didn’t look like it would ever get off the ground.

Now it has a release date and anything with Mike Tyson in it has to be considered Must See TV even if it is a show about pigeons.

As a kid growing up in a bad Brooklyn neighborhood, Mike Tyson was fascinated by the pigeons that flocked around his apartment building.

The birds, considered a dirty nuisance to most people, were beautiful to him.

The former heavyweight champion says they’re the first thing he ever loved in his life, and he reconnects with his childhood passion in “Taking on Tyson,” a six-part docudrama that debuts March 6 on Animal Planet.

Tyson says he thinks the show will give him a chance to broaden the horizons of people who don’t know anything about pigeons.

I think we all have little quirks that we carry into adulthood.  I have a full size cardboard cut out of Spider-Man in my man cave.  Tyson thing is pigeons, better than fighting dogs (sorry Michael Vick).

Tyson is providing quite the come back story in his middle portion of his life.

Honestly most people thought he would be dead or any jail by now.

    My favorite eyeliner is MAC Powerpoint Eye Pencil in Stubborn Brown! It’s been my HG liner for years!

  3. Just about all of what you point out happens to be supprisingly accurate and it makes me ponder why I hadn’t looked at this with this light before. This article truly did switch the light on for me as far as this topic goes. Nevertheless at this time there is actually one factor I am not really too cozy with and whilst I make an effort to reconcile that with the core idea of the point, let me observe exactly what the rest of the subscribers have to point out.Nicely done.
