Heavyweight belts are garbage, pigeons are family: Mike Tyson

New York: Mike Tyson has expressed his love for pigeons and nonchalance for his heavyweight belts.

The former heavyweight champ and ‘The Hangover Part II’ star revealed his passion for his feathered friends, who have become like a family for him over the years.

“These birds over here, I`ve had since I was 14 years old," the New York Daily News quoted him as telling the CBS News.

“They`re like my brothers and sisters. My friends. ``Cause I don`t have to worry about them asking me for any money or try and get over me or do anything or try to hurt me for any reason,” he said.

Tyson is also reported to have flippantly dismissed his many heavyweight belts as nothing but ‘garbage’.

“I can say I bled for garbage,” said the former heavyweight champion.

“This stuff is nothing. This is just nothing, man,” he added.
