Former boxing champion Mike Tyson is taking his love of veganism and showing it off to all of West Hollywood.
In partnership with the national organization Last Chance for Animals
, Tyson unveiled a new billboard featuring him kissing a dove, with the words “Vegan” and “Love Animals, Don’t Eat Them.”
“I am truly honored and grateful to be a part of this cause,” the 44-year-old said. “It’s been a while since an organization has wanted me for anything and to be a part of something that benefits people and animals in such a positive way is a blessing.”
Since he went vegan almost two years ago, the man once dubbed by promoters "as the baddest in the world" has been showing off a kinder, gentler side that many people have never seen, much less dared to believe existed.
"I have more stamina and it helps keep me in a positive state of mind," he added. "I didn't realize how weighed down I was when I ate meat. I never really felt 100 percent until I freed it from my diet. Now, I can't imagine going back to meat. I feel incredible."
“When you find out about the processed stuff you have been eating. I wonder why I was crazy all those years. All that garbage I was eating running around, the drugs didn’t help either,” he said.
