Taking On Tyson

Image 1 / 10

In the new Discovery Channel series ‘Taking on Tyson', Mike goes beyond just raising his feathered friends - he will race them for the very first time. With unprecedented access to the neighborhood haunts he grew up in and lifelong friends who surround him, this six-part series introduces audiences to the highly competitive, bizarrely fascinating subculture of pigeon racing. The stakes are high in a sport that has just as much machismo as boxing. From the rooftops of Jersey City to the streets of Brooklyn, this series provides a window into Mike Tyson's complex life as the boxing legend reconnects with his roots and return to his childhood neighbourhood to face his next challenge.
