Justin Bieber has already attached his rising pop star to the world of hip-hop, but now the urban-friendly crooner is getting even more street cred thanks to some photos showing Bieber hobnobbing with boxing champ Floyd Mayweather.
On May 5, Bieber was spotted at the Mayweather vs. Cotto fight, sitting ringside and looking model-boy-macho with a leather jacket, gold chain and pompadour.
After Mayweather beat Cotto for the win, Bieber headed into the ring with hip-hop heavyweights Lil Wayne and 50 Cent (Mayweather’s BFF) and even carried the champ’s two title belts with him as the rough-and-tumble crew celebrated and snapped photos.
Bieber congratulated Mayweather on the win and thanked the champ for letting him celebrate with his crew.
“@FloydMayweather Hard Work & Dedication . congrats champ. glad i could be a part of it,” Bieber tweeted.
Earlier in the day, Mayweather sent a congratulatory tweet of his own to the Canadian popstar and even thanked him on behalf of his infamous Money Team.
“@justinbieber keep up the great work and thanks for the support #TheMoneyTeam,” he tweeted. “Enjoy the fight.”
Well, it looks like this squeaky clean pop star is about to gain some major street cred and not just from Mayweather. Check out some photos of Bieber hanging out with his boxing and hip-hop friends below. –nicholas robinson
