A Kinder, Gentler "Iron Mike" Throws A Premiere Party at The Gansevoort Park Avenue!
Just a few blocks down from our offices here at LOOKING 4 LARRY (parent company of THE HEYMAN HUSTLE), the Animal Planet network threw a major shindig to promote the premiere of "Taking On Tyson," the new show featuring the former Heavyweight Boxing Champion of the World.
Tyson, who raised pigeons as a boy growing up on the tough streets of Brooklyn, is seen on the show lovingly cleaning out coops and feeding the birds to get them ready for a race. He joins forces with veteran trainers to put together a team that will compete in New Jersey.
"This is something that has really brought meaning to me and my life," Tyson stated, "This is not a hobby. This is something we're going to do until the day we die. I love being in my pigeon world. It brings me a calm."
Tyson also told the story of the incident that lead to the first time he ever through a punch. A bully picked on the young Tyson, and twisted one of his birds' heads.
"'That was the first time I threw a punch," Tyson stated, "The pigeons are always loyal and loving. And racing pigeons is on a different level but is as competitive and intense as boxing."
