Mike Tyson doesn't look like a bird guy. With his muscular bulk and facial tattoo, plus his history of violent, erratic behavior, the former world heavyweight boxing champion looks like "the baddest man on the planet."
That was Tyson's nickname when he was boxing, but it was even more accurate outside the ring. In 1992, he served three years in prison for rape. In 1997, attempting a comeback, he bit off part of Evander Holyfield's ear.
Tyson had already lost almost everything when Lennox Lewis knocked him out in 2002. As Tyson tells it, he left the ring and went straight to the place that has been his sanctuary since he was a kid: his pigeon coop.
