Legendary boxer Mike Tyson trained at Maynard James Keenan's Brazilian jiu-jitsu gym in Arizona.

According to one of Keenan's social media posts from over the weekend, Tyson has been training at the gym he co-founded in the Arizona town of Cottonwood called Verde Valley BJJ. Better yet, Tyson's been training there for his highly-anticipated upcoming match with Jake Paul.

"Honored to have @miketyson grace our small town academy, @verdevalleybjj. His Training Camp for @jakepaul vs @miketyson began under our roof," Keenan wrote in the caption of the post. "Gonna be bragging about that for a bit. Long after y'all are tired of hearing about it. Deal w it."

The 57-year-old champion is set to fight Paul, a 27-year-old former YouTuber, in Texas on July 20 and will air on Netflix. Paul has reportedly dubbed it "the biggest fight in history" [via Bleacher Report].
