Who would’ve thought! According to Animal Planet‘s website, the professional boxer threw his first punch when a neighborhood bully killed one of his pigeons.
“The first thing I ever loved in my life was a pigeon,” he said.” I don’t know why…I feel ridiculous trying to explain it. “Pigeons are a part of my life. It’s a constant with my sanity in a weird way; this is just what I do. If I’m lucky enough to die an old man, I’m going to have birds.”
