Justin Bieber

Training with MIKE TYSON

Before Pap Scuffle

5/28/2012 3:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



0528_bieber_tyson_videoIn an odd bit of foreshadowing, Justin Bieber hung out with Mike Tyson and got some boxing tips from the legendary fighter just days before his alleged run-in with a paparazzo.

Check out the Biebs working the heavy bag with Tyson. They posed for a pic with another guy, which Tyson tweeted with the caption, "Me, @john and @justinbieber before we started training JB"

As TMZ first reported, Bieber is now a suspect in a criminal battery after Bieber allegedly got into it with a photog in Calabasas. Cops were called to the scene -- Bieber and GF Selena Gomez had already split -- and the photog was transported to a nearby hospital and later released.

Witnesses say the pap incited Bieber and got tips from a lawyer at the scene about calling an ambulance and filing a police report.

It was def. a setup.....Justin doesn't hurt anybody.The reporter going to the hospital is a fricken joke........The guy should be ashamed of himself.

I think this is probably more of a case of Justin trying to prove he is a man and is hard-core to Selena by showing off his boxing skills.

Too bad he is really just a little girly-boy with too much money and fake bravado. The pap should have knocked him on his ass,

YOU KNOW WITH BIEBER'S $$$$$$, HIS LAWYERS WILL FIGHT THIS BIG TIME.

I KNOW THAT WHEN ARNOLD WAS GOV, HE PUT IN A ANTI STALKING CELEBRITY LAW ( FORGETTING ABOUT HOW FUNNY THAT IS.

BUT REALLY HOPING THAT BIELER SPENDS LIKE 10 MILLION DOLLARS, DEFENDING HIMSELF CRIMINALLY AND GOING AFTER THIS PHOTOGRAPHER CIVILILLY, FOR HARASSMENT OR KIDNAPPING OR SOMETHING.

THAT WOULD BE SWEET REVENGE! BIEBER SHOULD MAKE THE PHOTOGRAPHER PAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tyson is such a great role model. The Biebler wil probably buy his own Hood and sell crack on the side.

Nothing like mixing with the worst influences you can ever be around. First Mayweather, and now Tyson. Change your image fine, but I see bad things in his future with these so called change of image influences,
