Mike Tyson once ruthlessly dumped his girlfriend after she KILLED and ATE one of his beloved pigeons.
’Iron’ Mike has had a love for pigeons ever since he was a young boy during his challenging upbringing in Brooklyn.
But not everyone in his life sees them the same way as him, with the former heavyweight world champion revealing a brutal story about his ex-partner.
His then-girlfriend questioned his relationship with the pigeons and proceeded to grab one and cook it.
Considering his bond with pigeons, Tyson refused to eat it and from there, ended the relationship.
Asked on the Boomer and Carton radio show if he had eaten a pigeon, he replied: “I tried. I tried.
“I was dating this young lady and she said, ‘I don’t know why you’re flying those damn birds, you should be eating them.'”
Tyson added: “She happened to grab one and – and she cooked one and proceeded to eat it. And I just couldn’t do it.
“It just wasn’t the right thing to do. That’s why she’s not my woman anymore.”
Simply put, don’t get in the way of Tyson’s pigeons – a garbage man found out the hard way.
He knocked out the person who dumped his dead pigeon into the trash compactor.
The boxing legend recalled: “One morning I woke up and found my favorite pigeon, Julius, had died I was devastated and was gonna use his crate as my stickball bat to honor him.
“I left the crate on my stoop and went in to get something and I returned to see the sanitation man put the crate into the crusher.
“I rushed him and caught him flush on the temple with a titanic right hand he was out cold, convulsing on the floor like an infantile retard.”
