Mike Tyson says he is a huge fan of Justin Bieber.

The 46-year-old former professional boxer may shock some fans with his soft side, especially his affinity for pop music.

Mike is a true Belieber and often listens to Justin's songs.

He is impressed with the teenage musician.

"I just think he's pretty awesome," Mike told MTV News.

"And I think his cut with Big Sean [As Long As You Love Me] was pretty awesome too.

"If you saw my iPad, I have everything. My wife puts everything on my iPad. You know, 'Justin? Let's put him in there. Let's put Rihanna in there. Let's put Kendrick Lamar in there.'

"My wife's got everything on there, she's got Shania Twain - I don't know why she put that in there - and I can't remember some of the other stuff. I hear Lloyd sometimes. But mostly I find out about stuff from my wife."

Justin has been making headlines recently for "bad boy" behaviour and has been photographed smoking what appears to be marijuana.

Mike thinks the young entertainer is making wise choices.

"Justin's not having any problems. He should just enjoy his life; nothing's wrong, he's not doing anything bad or anything," the athlete said.

"Weed is not necessarily a problem. He hasn't gotten arrested or anything, or in a car wreck. He's a really awesome kid, and he earned everything he has.

"He should just live life on life's terms."
