Mike Tyson Gambling Away His Chances To Chase Tail

| Filed under: Mike TysonReality TV


Animal Planet should never have taken a chance on a show about a rat with wings… and his love for pigeons.

As we reported earlier, Mike Tyson has signed on for a new series with the network called Take on Tyson, which will document his initial attempts in entering the fascinating world of pigeon fighting.

However, the series, which was set to start shooting next month, maybe cancelled before it even begins as city officials of Brooklyn, NY are calling into question the legality of such a show. They claim that the series would violating local gambling laws. The District Attorney's office is hard at work looking to shut the show down.

No! Boo! We want to see Mike Tyson get all flustered for peckers pigeons! Do not deny us this joy!

    You reported last week that it's PIGEON RACING not FIGHTING… so which is it?

    Uh, I don't know anything about pigeon fighting, but I'd hate to think it's something where the birds fight ’till the death. It's not really like that… :::GULP!!::: is it???

    You keep call them rats with wings. They didn't ask to be born as your dog didn't.

    Pigeon fighting? Pigeons are the hippies of the bird world

    It's pigeon RACING. Pigeon fighting is cruel as well as illegal.

    As per usual, not only are you way behind the other gossip sites on reporting this, you also completely fucked up the facts behind the story. Christ, at least you're consistent…

    It is not fighting, he is filming a show on RACING!! Tyson loves pigeons and would never hurt them. This is just those pathetic losers at PETA making more waves. They are the ones that started this by saying that the money animal planet pays him is the same as profiting off the races. What idiots

    Are they fighting? I will not condone animals fighting. That's not fun unless your a Mexican with chickens or Black people with Pitt Bulls. White people have the WWE but nobody gets killed.

    Pigeon fighting????? I highly doubt animal planet would air a show like that ..I think you could be classified as a rat with wings except your wings are love handles
