Floyd Mayweather won the super welterweight championship title on Saturday (May 5) in Las Vegas, defeating defender Miguel Cotto. That’s not shocking. What is shocking is who flanked Mayweather as he walked to the ring: Justin Bieber and 50 Cent.
The Bieb, whose “Boyfriend” video just dropped on Thursday, carried the Mayweather’s previous title belts to the ring and both stayed in his corner as he went 12 rounds against Cotto before he was unanimously declared the winner.
The Twitterverse exploded with the news of Mayweather’s surprising companions. Most comments mirrored this tweeter, who wrote, “50 Cent and Justin Bieber in this bit! lmfaoooooo.”
Also on hand in Las Vegas for the fight were Lil’ Wayne and Mary J. Blige,
