Tyson beckoned the birds with the allure of food

And it seems the birds are having a calming influence on Tyson as he gets set to return to the ring.

Tyson, 54, posted a video of himself chilling by the pool in the back garden of his luxurious mansion.

Armed with food for his birds, a giddy Iron Mike grins ear-to-ear as he prepares to feed them.

The Baddest Man on the Planet whistles gently, beckoning them to come and take some lunch.

And while many people would flinch at the sight of a flock of pigeons approaching them, Tyson appears totally at ease.

The camera then pans around to a series of cages, housing a number of other birds.

Tyson has always had a love for pigeons, and revealed that it was the honour of one that drew his first punch as a ten-year-old.

He said: “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.”

Tyson will step into the ring on November 28 for the first time since his 2005 loss to Kevin McBride – as he takes on Roy Jones Jr at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
