It was safe for a while, but Floyd Mayweather has dredged up talks of a Tom Cruise and Justin Bieber fight.
The undefeated boxer/head of Mayweather Promotions has made it clear that he wants to bypass UFC president Dana White and act as the promoter for a fight between the two celebrities.
Talks have occurred between White, Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun, and Endeavor agency and UFC Owner Ari Emanuel, as all three sides were interested in arranging a date inside the Octagon.
“If they bring me in as a promoter, then I can talk about it,” Mayweather told TMZ of the fight instigated by his ex-friend randomly calling Cruise out on Twitter. “But until then, I gotta stay in my lane. Gotta stay in my business.”
Bieber was a constant at Mayweather’s fights up until 2017, when the actor and boxer would have a falling out for reasons unknown.
Mayweather at one point was training the YouTube star turned pop music machine, but that would dissolve along with the friendship.
