The episode is yet to be released, but we have already received a glace of Evans in the show. Tyson and Evans seem to have talked about several things in the session. However, Mike Tyson was left stunned when Rashad Evans displayed one of his unique talents.

Evans let out a bark, and it was astonishingly perfect. Although it was a comical relief for the audience, Tyson truly appeared to be impressed by it. ‘Iron’ Mike even tried to convince Evans to repeat the act before everyone broke out in laughter.

One more factor that could have brought out Tyson’s appraisal is his love for animals. ‘Iron’ Mike is regarded as a wildlife lover, and throughout his life, he has sheltered several animals.

Back in his prime, Mike Tyson had wild tigers at his home. He often used to take them out for a walk and also had umpteen pigeons. However, he lost much of it in 2003 when Tyson was left bankrupt. While he has regained a portion of his wealth in fashion, Tyson still pets dogs and pigeons at his home.

Before his massive return against Roy Jones Jr, Tyson was spotted feeding the pigeons from home. So, it’s evident that the heavyweight great remains the same.
