Imagine picking a fight with someone twice your size, losing horrendously and still having someone like boxing legend Floyd Mayweather have your back online. Such is Justin Bieber’s reality this week.
The singer got into a fight Wednesday night (June 8) in Cleveland and the whole thing was caught on video as obtained by TMZ.
As the story goes, just after 11 p.m., Bieber was outside of his hotel when he got into an altercation with someone much larger than him and punches were thrown in both directions. A couple other people tried to jump in once things popped off, but before everyone knew it, Bieber was on the ground, and he wasn’t necessarily the victor in this round.
While it is unclear exactly what sparked the fight, there is a good chance that the NBA Finals had something to do with it. Bieber was in town to catch the game and was wearing a Cleveland Cavaliers shirt.
Following the scuffle, Bieber took to Instagram posting a shirtless selfie captioned “Not a scratch on this pretty boy,” but he deleted it shortly after.
Considering Mayweather jumped in saying that Bieber “showed he ain’t no b***h,” and “showed he got heart," maybe this wasn’t an L for Bieber after all.
