Boxing Icon Mike Tyson Launches an NFT Collection and Discusses Solana

The 10,000 unique Iron Pigeon NFTs by Mike Tyson will be a part of the metaverse and a trading card game on Ex Populus.

One of the most celebrated boxing icons of all time, Mike Tyson is launching another NFT collection, this time with gaming and metaverse developers Ex Populus.

The collection “Iron Pigeons” comes from Tyson’s nickname “Iron Mike” and his love for pigeons. The boxing legend owns and takes care of over a thousand birds. The collection of 10,000 unique NFTs will be a part of the Ex Populus metaverse and will feature in its trading card game. Rarer pigeon traits mean a more powerful card in the trading game.


Mike Tyson has been in crypto for a while now, and every now and then he shares NFT purchases on his Twitter account. He recently bought a Catalina Whale and commented that he is “all in on Solana.”

The sport’s legend also instigated discussion about the price of SOL, and whether OpenSea will start selling NFTs based on Solana.
