Animal Planet has announced plans for a new show with Mike Tyson called “Taking On Tyson” where the former heavyweight boxer introduces viewers to the competitive world of pigeon racing. “Taking On Tyson” will explore pigeon auctions, rearing, and competitions as Tyson challenges some of the best pigeon racing owners in the city.

Unknown to some, Tyson has a deep passion for pigeons and has raised the feathered friends all of his life.

“I’m honored to be a part of this monumental show on Animal Planet,” says Tyson, who’s first ever fight as a child was in defense of his birds. “I feel a great pride acting as an official representative for all the pigeon fancier’s out there. I want people to see why we love these birds. It feels good returning to the rooftops of the city where it all started for me – New York.”

“Tyson’s passion for his pigeons takes my breath away,” explains Marjorie Kaplan, president and general manager of Animal Planet Media. “For years, he has been inspired by these birds that he feels have the ‘biggest heart’ in the animal kingdom. ‘Taking on Tyson’ peels back new layers of the remarkable persona and deep humanity of Mike Tyson while also showing us a whole world we never knew existed right on the rooftops of New York City.”

Tyson will serve as the executive producer for the show which is expected to start filming this spring in New York City and debut in early 2011.
