‘Champs Train With Champs’: Serena Williams and Mike Tyson Send the Internet Into a Frenzy With Their Boxing Workout Together

One is considered to be the greatest professional tennis player of all time by many. The other was one of the most intimidating boxing champions, who secured his first heavyweight title at just 20 years old.

We’re talking about Serena Williams and Mike Tyson, who were seen in a video training together. The clip, which TMZ says was filmed in Florida, shows the boxing legend teaching Williams how to throw a punch combination. And she does it with a lot of force on the heavy bag while Tyson holds it.

The tennis star also lets out a few noises as she throws the punches, which makes it seem like she’s hitting the bag with all her might. Williams shared the video Thursday on her Instagram page, and you can see camera people in the background filming everything.

“Preseason just got really real @miketyson #mouratogloupreseason,” the mother of one captioned the clip.

Tyson also shared the video to his Instagram page, along with a still photo of himself and Williams facing each other with boxing gloves on. “I don’t want to get in the ring with this GOAT @serenawilliams much love and respect,” he wrote next to the pic.
