What does an 18-year-old singing sensation and a 5'10" heavyweight champion have in common? They're both knockouts! (In one way or another). The teen heartthrob, Justin Bieber, scored some private, ring-side boxing tips from legendary fighter Mike Tyson last week — just days before his alleged fight with the paparazzi. You gotta love irony, right?
The video clip shows the young star throwing down some serious punches while Tyson firmly holds the bag and eggs him on. They also managed to capture a photo of their lesson together, which Tyson later put on Twitter, writing, "Me, @john and @justinbieber before we started training JB." Normally, you wouldn't think these two would hang out in the same circles, but in the world of Beliebers, anything is possible.
As for some boxing tips Bieber could probably learn from The Baddest Man on the Planet, here's a few: biting opponents is highly frowned upon, don't judge a voice by its pitch, and the best offense is a good offense.
Nobody puts Beiber in a corner.

The Hangover star headed to Las Vegas last month (Apr12) to debut The Undisputed Truth, a no-holds-barred account of his life story.
The autobiographical show, which Tyson will bring to Broadway next year (13), details his drug and alcohol addictions, psychotic episodes and even his penchant for Japanese prostitutes.
Tyson admits the deeply personal show has helped him learn more about himself and move away from his troubled past.
He tells Britain's Daily Telegraph, "It's therapeutic to talk about what I've lived through in front of hundreds of people. And when you've been in rehab, you're very comfortable talking about yourself."
However, the former world champion admits he is reluctant to boast about his reform.
He adds, "I'm a major league relapse artist. I'll do two years (of sobriety) and then think, 'F**k it.'"
The Choice sees famous faces sitting in spinning chairs - like the judges on the popular singing series - as non-famous suitors attempt to win their affections, according to Entertainment Weekly.
Model Tyson Beckford, singer Taylor Hicks and Jersey Shore stars Pauly D and Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino have signed up for the show, and actress Carmen Electra and singer/actress Sophie Monk will appear on the female episode of the series.
The Choice, hosted by Cat Deeley, debuts in the U.S. on 7 June (12).
The Choice, the Cat Deeley-hosted, Voice-inspired dating show, has finally revealed which celebrities will compete for a chance to romance the commoner of their dreams. The list includes reality show veterans Rob Kardashian, Pauly D, and the Situation, as well as musicians Joe Jonas, Romeo, and Taylor Hicks. The six episode series slated to air this summer on FOX will focus on male celebrities, but one episode will feature famous bachelorettes Carmen Electra, Hope Dworaczyk, Rima Fakih, and Sophie Monk.
So who could possibly win these stars' hearts? Rob Kardashian should look for a laid back woman who won't freak when his sisters listen in on their dates. Dean Cain needs a female comic book fan who's always dreamed of being whisked away by a superhero. Pauly D and the Situation will probably have the hardest time finding love on the show. Since they'll have their chairs turned away from their prospective dates, they won't know which candidates are the perfect shade of orange.
Here's the full cast list:

What Snooki Can Learn from Other Reality TV Pregnancies
Six Reality Television Fighting Words I Never Want to Hear Again
The retired sportsman has been revealing all about his controversial career and personal life as part of a one-man stageshow, titled Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth, which recently debuted in Las Vegas, but there was one interesting topic from his time behind bars that he left out.
In a TV interview with ESPN's Rick Reilly, Tyson fails to state when exactly the incident occurred, but reveals the prison employee terminated the pregnancy soon after their encounter.
He says, "I didn't talk about getting a prison official pregnant. Oh yeah. In prison, stuff happens. But she had no baby."
Tyson, who is a father of eight, served three years of a 10-year sentence for rape in 1992.
Legal powerhouse Singer represented the actor in his multi-million dollar court battle with Warner Bros. bosses over his firing from hit sitcom Two and a Half Men last year (11), and Sheen returned the favour by appearing at the Beverly Hills Bar Association bash in California on Wednesday (18Apr12).
Sheen was a surprise speaker at the event, which crowned Singer entertainment lawyer of the year, and he roasted his pal with a series of explicit gags.
He told the audience, "Marty might be the only person who has f**ked more people than I have... A lot as been said about my past. But trust me, I never s**ewed a hooker as hard as Marty s**ewed Warner Bros. I've got 100 million reasons to say thank you."
Funnyman Tom Arnold hosted the event and poked fun at his own legal troubles with ex-wife Roseanne Barr, joking to the crowd, "My wife was a walking lawsuit. There were a lot of billable hours in that crazy b**ch."
Hollywood actress Sharon Stone was also among the speakers and she joked about her famous crotch-flashing scene in 1992 movie Basic Instinct: "You call Marty because you need someone like Mike Tyson in the Holyfield fight, when he bit his ear off. Marty is such a bad ass motherf**ker... If I had known him back when I was making Basic Instinct, I could have gotten Marty Singer to take that scene out of the movie."
A number of Singer's other famous clients were in the audience, including John Travolta and his wife Kelly Preston, Priscilla Presley, and Arnold Schwarzenegger, who took part in a video tribute to the attorney along with fellow Hollywood tough guys Bruce Willis and Sylvester Stallone.
The former glamour model, aka Jordan, will team up with her on-off boyfriend, model Leandro Penna, on the talent series.
Announcing the big TV news on Thursday (12Apr12), Price said, "I don't want him dancing with another woman. I want to dance with him."
She will follow in the foxtrot steps of Mike Tyson and Pamela Anderson, who have previously appeared on Argentina's answer to Strictly Come Dancing and Dancing With The Stars.
Price recently reunited with Penna after a five-month split.
The mismatched former couple had a tempestuous marriage, dogged by reports of domestic abuse and brawls, but Tyson admits he was still fond of the actress after they split.
And one morning he plucked up the courage to go to Givens' new home in Hollywood in the hope of reconciling with his ex.
He recalls, "During our crazy marriage, I'm saying, 'You're a thief, you're a gold digger,' and (she's like), 'You're an abuser, you beat me up!' but... I was just a young kid and I missed my wife.
"I go to the house, I ring the buzzer and no one's there. I go back to my car... and she drives up... with the handsome Brad Pitt. I thought, 'Oh man, I'm not gonna get no p**sy. F**k!'"
Recalling that moment on U.S. TV show Conan on Tuesday (03Apr12), Tyson admitted he was so upset he didn't even have the will to challenge Pitt: "I was just emotionally comatose; I went from a hard stallion to a wet noodle... I had no energy to fight or anything."
Tyson and Givens were married for just over a year, from 1988 to 1989.
The Hangover star made the confession during an appearance on U.S. late night show Conan on Tuesday (03Apr12), recalling the cops even agreed to take him to his drug dealer's house.
Tyson said, "When they pulled me over, I said, 'It's over, man...!' But they (cops) said, 'Mike, that was awesome in The Hangover, that was great!' And I said, 'Excuse me, would you take me to this address, sir?'"
The sportsman also revealed he didn't have his driving licence with him at the time - but the officers didn't ask for any form of identification.
He added, "The cops took me to the drug house... and the people in there are freaking out... He (cop) takes me in there and then he starts reprimanding the guy at the house to make sure I get home."
Tyson admits he had a long walk home after the incident because everyone at the house left as soon as the cops drove off and he was left alone and lost.
Getting a huge tattoo on any part of your body is a huge commitment (just ask Mike Tyson) — but what if it's just temporary? Jessica Alba recently surprised fans when she showed off a large rose on her arm... that is removable, her rep tells E! News. (Phew.) The tat is for Alba's upcoming film A.C.O.D., a comedy also starring beloved Parks and Rec actor Adam Scott. So there is an upside to having to sport the massive ink! Below, a list of other celebrities who wore fake tattoos for movie roles.
Owen Wilson had a graphic of Teri Polo drawn on his back for his stint in Little Fockers. Apparently, there are things more terrible to look at than the ill-advised third film in the Meet the Parents franchise. Angelina Jolie pulled off the art on her arms in Wanted so well, she almost made us want the tats. Of course, some of Jolie's body art body art in the film was her own, but the words "toil" and "tears" didn't stay for long. Besides, the words don't really match Jolie's lifestyle. What does she have to complain about? Raising her six kids? She has a staff to do that for her.
One of Ed Norton's most petrifying turns was his Swastika-clad character in American History X. Thankfully, for the sake of your crush, Norton is not a skinhead in real life. So no need to curb your enthusiasm over the talented actor. (Oh god, why did I just remind myself of the curb scene?!)
And then, of course, there's one of the most famous tattoos in recent pop culture history: The dragon tattoo on Rooney Mara's back. It's all in the name of the film — you think we'd leave The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo off this list?
