“This heart-warming, gorgeously filmed show reveals a terrifying man who has grown into someone you might want to know”
New York Post
Heavyweight boxing legend and Brooklyn native Mike Tyson has always loved breeding and raising pigeons and for the first time he learns how to race them. With unprecedented access to the neighborhood haunts he grew up in and lifelong friends who surround him, this six-part series introduces audiences to the highly competitive, bizarrely fascinating subculture of pigeon racing. The stakes are high in a sport that has just as much machismo as boxing.
From the rooftops of Jersey City to the streets of Brooklyn, Taking on Tyson provides a window into Mike Tyson's complex life as the boxing legend reconnects with his roots and return to his childhood neighbourhood to face his next challenge.
