I never thought I’d write these words, but: Mike Tyson has gone vegan!

You heard correctly, the fighter who’s notorious for biting off a piece of Holyfield’s ear has given up animal protein altogether.

According to USAToday.com:

“Tyson is starring in a reality TV series on Animal Planet in which he races pigeons. He says he’s become a vegan and has “no drama” in his life right now, which he concedes is an odd feeling for an athlete notorious for his brushes with the law.”

Earlier this year, Ecorazzi told you about Tyson’s new Animal Planet show and his love of pigeons.

“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.”

We’re not so sure how we feel about racing pigeons, but vegan…VEGAN?! That’s pretty darn huge! What do you think of Tyson’s new planet-pleasing diet? Chime in and share your thoughts!
