Justin Bieber was an integral part of the Floyd Mayweather entourage last night in Las Vegas when the champion made his grand entrance at the MGM Grand Garden Arena prior to his title fight against Miguel Cotto.
The 18-year-old pop star hit Twitter early Saturday to lay the groundwork: “Cinco de Mayo #MayweatherCotto yeah @floydmayweather today is a BIG day.”
Later that night he shocked the crowd when he entered the arena while hoisting two of Mayweather’s championship belts as the group made their way toward the ring. WWE wrestler Triple H and rapper 50 Cent were also among the entry entourage who stood in the ring prior to the start of the main event.
Cotto lost in a 12 round unanimous decision favoring Mayweather for the WBA Super Welterweight World Championship title.
Bieber tweeted, “Hard Work & Determination. Congrats champ. Glad I could be a part of it.”
