MIKE TYSON introduced Muhammad Ali’s grandson to his beloved pigeons.
Iron Mike, 55, who will face no criminal charges for his recent fight with a plane passenger, befriended the legend at the height of his own iconic boxing career.
It now appears the former world champion has struck up a friendship with the late star’s grandson, Nico Ali Walsh.
The 21-year-old is already on his way to creating his own legacy inside the ring.
He holds a professional record of 5-0 after his last victory in Las Vegas.
Walsh produced a sensational one-hit knockout of Alejandro Ibarra on the Shakur Stevenson-Oscar Valdez undercard at the MGM Grand last month.
Now it seems he’s chosen Tyson’s mastermind in order to further aid him in his own quest for glory by paying a visit to the home of the Baddest Man on Earth.
But it wasn’t just boxing advice that Tyson had in store for the prospect.
During the visit, the high-profile animal lover decided to let Walsh meet his famous collection of pigeons.
And Walsh shared footage of him being taught how to hold birds by Tyson inside his home’s birdhouse.

The American has been in love with birds since the age of nine.
In 2020, he posted a video of himself relaxing and feeding his pets before his show fight with Roy Jones Jr.
He has always had a love for pigeons and revealed it was the honor of the one who fired his first punch aged ten.
He said in the past: “The guy ripped my pigeon’s head off. It was the first thing I loved in my life, the pigeon.
“It was the first time I threw a punch.
“I have loved pigeons since I was nine years old. They were my escape.
“I was fat and ugly. Kids teased me all the time. The only joy I had was the pigeons.”
