Mike Tyson‘s joined forces with another famous fighter to help kids get an education … opening a first-of-its-kind school.
Mike is working with MMA star Daniel Puder on a new education model … and the joined us on “TMZ Live” Thursday to break it down for us.
Iron Mike and Daniel just opened a school in Arizona called Tyson’s Transformational Technologies Academy … it’s an extension of Daniel’s prep schools, the first emotional and belief intelligence-based school system in the nation.
As the fighters explain … the school is all about teaching life skills like financial literacy and resume building … topics that don’t fall into traditional curriculum.
Daniel says Mike’s star power is what makes this whole thing run … he says students who attend a Tyson school are going to make a serious impression when it’s time for college admissions.
Mike and Daniel have four schools so far … two in Florida and another in West Virginia … but Mike’s already talking expansion, telling us … “We’re gonna educate the world, baby!!!”
Thursday was ribbon cutting day … and it looks like their students are pumped about school.
