Justin Bieber Got 'Training' From Boxer Mike Tyson Before Paparazzi Scuffle (PHOTOS)
Is Justin Bieber really trying to fight the paparazzi, or is this just a case of bad timing? Photos of 18-year-old training with boxing champ Mike Tyson recently surfaced following Bieber's physical altercation with a paparazzo on Sunday afternoon.
According to the famous boxer, the pics were taken last weekend when Bieber went to visit him at the gym. He tweeted, "Me, @johnny and @justinbieber before we started training JB."
On Monday, Bieber also emerged on Twitter and sent multiple messages of thanks to fans, writing:

According to a sheriff's report obtained by Celebuzz, Bieber and a photographer got into a scuffle outside the Commons at Calabasas when the pap got too close to the "Boyfriend" singer and his gal pal Selena Gomez. After the scuffle, the cameraman dialed 9-1-1 while the pop sensation and his girlfriend left the scene.
The photog was taken to a hospital after complaining about upper torso pain, but was released later on in the day.
A law enforcement officer told us that the case is still on-going.
