When it was announced that boxing great Floyd Mayweather would be flanked by both rapper Lil Wayne and pop ‘star’ Justin Bieber, I couldn’t help but shake my head.
The Wayne inclusion was fine, but Bieber? That just reeked of attention seeking, but then again, we are talking about Mayweather so that’s to be expected.
For those of you who missed the fight last night or were too busy grabbing food before the first punches were thrown, we had Mayweather’s ring walk complete with a smug looking Bieber and a rapping Wayne that was as terrible as one could have expected.
First you have Wayne, who seemed to be holding the mic too close to his mouth, mumbling over the ‘Milli’ beat. As if that wasn’t bad enough, there was Bieber, draped up in his hilariously silly gold chain, sunglasses on, strolling like a pimp, looking completely (though not shockingly) out of place.
Maybe I’m just spoiled by the epicness that was Mike Tyson walking into the ring as 2pac blared, but I expected a little something more from Money Mayweather. Something that didn’t include a muffled rap and Bieber looking annoying as ever.
