Muhammad Ali’s grandson recently got introduced to Mike Tyson.
Mike Tyson met Muhammad Ali during the height of his own legendary boxing career. Now it seems that the late star’s grandson, Nico Ali Walsh, has struck up a connection with the former world champion.
The 21-year-old is well on his way to establishing his own legacy in the ring. After his most recent triumph in Las Vegas, he now has a 5-0 professional record.
On the Shakur Stevenson-Oscar Valdez undercard at the MGM Grand last month, Walsh stunned Alejandro Ibarra with a spectacular one-punch knockout.
Now it seems that he has been picking Tyson’s brains in order to advance his journey to the top.
But Tyson gave more than just boxing advise to the young boxer. During the visit, the well-known animal enthusiast chose to introduce Walsh to his pigeons.
Walsh also released video of Tyson teaching him how to hold the birds inside his home’s bird loft. Tyson has been enamored with birds since he was nine years old.
Prior to his exhibition with Roy Jones Jr. in 2020, he shared a video of himself resting and feeding his dogs.
Mike Tyson always had a soft spot for pigeons, revealing that it was an assault on pigeon that made him unleash aggression for the first time.
“The guy ripped the head off my pigeon. This was the first thing I ever loved in my life, the pigeon. That was the first time I threw a punch. I have loved pigeons since I was nine. They were my escape. I was fat and ugly. Kids teased me all the time. The only joy I had was pigeons.”
