3. Mike Tyson – Pigeon Raising
Tyson is one of combat sport’s most notorious characters. You either love him or hate him, there’s little room for middle ground. The former heavyweight champion was a force of nature in his prime. However, he’s also a convicted rapist and literally bit a chunk out of Evander Holyfield’s ear.
But there is a sense that in latter years Tyson is a different man. He doesn’t even hit the bag anymore because he doesn’t want to be the person he was before. One of ‘Iron Mike’s’ most eclectic interests is raising pigeons. His passion for the birds even morphed into a TV show.
