Anyone who is a fan of former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson probably knows that as a youth, he was a great fan of pigeons, even taking solace in caring for them in his Brooklyn neighborhood. It’s really no surprise that he traveled to a foreign country to obtain a handful of them.

An Instagram post revealed the boxer-turned-podcaster reportedly traveled to Poland to purchase some pigeons. The post, written in Polish and translated to English, said: “Mike Tyson came specially to Pi żytnica (next to !om ća) to buy 100 pigeons from the local trader!

“No one would have predicted such a turn of events today.”

In the post, Tyson is seen posing with one of the local breeders there.

The Daily Mail posted quotes attributed to Tyson in earlier years when he spoke of his love for pigeons and why he was drawn to them as a youngster.

Growing up in New York, he found that caring for pigeons during a traumatic childhood brought him solace. The publication stated he said, ‘I was fat, and ugly, and kids teased me all the time. The only joy I had was pigeons. I’ve loved them since I was nine. They were my escape.’

Tyson may have learned that Poland reportedly gained a reputation for pigeon breeding. It was reported last year that it has become Europe’s largest community of pigeon breeders. The pigeons are ‘good enough to compete in international tournaments.’ Earlier this March, the Polish government announced it intended to place traditional pigeon breeding on the country’s List of Intangible National Heritage. Deputy Culture Minister Jaroslaw Sellin has gone on record saying: ‘Polish mail pigeons are world-class.’

While we are on the topic of overseas businesses, in March, Tyson launched his Tyson 2.0 cannabis brand in a brick-and-mortar coffee shop in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Coffeeshop Tyson 2.0 offers a selection of the brand’s products and accessories and serves as a lounge for visitors to receive the full Tyson 2.0 experience, according to Global Cannabis Times. It sits on 1,200 sq. ft. in the centrally located Spuistraat 222 near Soho House, the W Hotel, and Central Station.
