Floyd Mayweather Jr. Completes Justin Bieber's Comeback

TMT boss walks the Purpose singer out at his L.A. concert.

Published 2 weeks ago

Floyd Mayweather Jr. seems to have found a new gig now that he's retired from boxing.

The former champ headed up Justin Bieber's hype team this weekend, walking the singer out for his concert at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Saturday night.


Bieber happens to be making a return to music after a three-year, antics-filled "hiatus" since his last album Believe. He released Purpose this Friday, led by the chart-topping single "What Do You Mean?" and its follow up, "Sorry."

For the introduction, Mayweather and his entourage flanked Bieber, Team Money-style, as he made his way through the screaming crowd to the stage. Usually, it's Bieber who escorts the welterweight to the ring. But now that he's hung up his gloves for good (or so he says), apparently, little bro is free to have all the shine.

Bieber is set to embark on the official Purpose Tour beginning in March 2016. Big SeanTravi$ Scott and Ed Sheeran are among the LP's features.
