Former boxing great, Mike Tyson, is set to appear in an upcoming, new series on the Animal Planet network, in which he details his childhood love for raising pigeons. But, in the show, Mike goes beyond that — he races them for the very first time.

“With unprecedented access to the neighborhood haunts he grew up in, and in the company of the lifelong friends who surround him, Mike takes audiences on an insider’s tour of the highly competitive, bizarrely fascinating subculture of pigeon racing,” the network describes. “The stakes are high in this sport, which has just as much machismo as boxing. But this time it’s not about money; it’s about bragging rights.”

The show is set to premiere on March 6 at 10 PM e/p on Animal Planet. For more info, visit
