Mike Tyson has been captured showing Muhammad Ali’s grandson, his beloved collection pigeons.
Iron Mike, a boxing legend, was close to Ali throughout his career. Now, he can be seen with his grandson Nico Ali Walsh. Nico, 21, has already donned his gloves and stepped into a professional ring of boxing on five occasions.
His current record is 5-0-0. He recently won a spectacular one-punch knockout win over Alejandro Ibarra at MGM Grand Las Vegas. He seems to be enjoying some downtime and was snapped visiting Tyson.
Tyson wanted to show Nico his famous collection, even though he was hoping to learn from the Baddest Man on the Planet. Nico shared the footage of Mike holding the birds. Silver Screen Beat reports.
Mike was fascinated by birds from the time he was nine years of age. He posted an earlier video in which he was seen feeding the birds and chilling before entering the ring to face Roy Jones Jr.

Mike said that he loves pigeons and that he has previously stated: “The guy ripped the head off my pigeon. This was the first thing I ever loved in my life, the pigeon.
“It was my first attempt at throwing a punch. Since I was nine years old, I’ve loved pigeons. They were my escape.
“I was fat and ugly. Kids teased me all the time. The only joy I had was pigeons.”
It was revealed earlier this week that Mike and Jake Paul are in crunch negotiations over a potential fight. The Baddest Man on the Planet: “I’m going to call him [Paul] sometime on Friday and we’re going to talk.”When asked if he would agree to the fight if talks progressed, he replied: “Absolutely.”
