Floyd Mayweather eyes up chance to promote potential Justin Bieber vs Tom Cruise fight

Mayweather's career is now in promoting, so....

Floyd Mayweather has said he would consider being enlisted as a promoter should the fight between Justin Bieber and Tom Cruise become a reality.

The former world champion boxer addressed Bieber’s recent incongruous call for a scrap with Cruise at the UFC Octagon. Bieber’s bizarre challenge, which he later said was a joke, has since gathered steam as a potentially historic – and lucrative – sporting event.

Speaking to TMZ, Mayweather said: “If they bring me in as a promoter, then I can talk about it. But until then, I gotta stay in my lane. Gotta stay in my business.”

The move wouldn’t be totally out of step. In 2014, Mayweather invited Bieber to walk him to the ring for a fight, and he also once trained the pop star to box. However, the pair reportedly fell out in 2017 over Bieber’s rumoured distancing from the ex-boxer who was seen as a bad influence.
