According to TMZ, Justin Bieber‘s appearance with boxing champion Floyd Mayweather was no coincidence.  Their union has been months in the making.  The site reports Justin feels his “mentor” is really just “misunderstood.”  Mayweather asked Justin four months ago to join him in Las Vegas for the Miguel Cotto fight and–Justin jumped at the opportunity.

‘The Biebs’ was seen arriving at the Mayweather vs. Cotto fight with rapper/actor 50 Cent in Las Vegas last Saturday.  Justin had two giant title belts wrapped around his shoulders as he entered the MGM Garden Arena with 50 Cent.  Justin is a part of ‘The Money Team?’

Mayweather and Bieber became friends after the boxing champ saw Justin’s movie, Never Say Never, and reached out to his camp.  Floyd decided he wanted to mentor Justin and the two developed a relationship.  Again, Justin is a part of ‘The Money Team?’

Justin enjoyed the fight claiming his mentor is a “pretty good boxer.”  Mayweather remains undefeated, racking up his 43rd victory!

Interesting match-up (pardon-the-pun)!  What are your thoughts?
