Floyd Mayweather Jr. has made a habit of having celebrities escort him into the ring before his high-profile fights. The roster of A-list recording artists making the walk includes Justin Bieber, 50 Cent and Lil Wayne. Mayweather told Billboard magazine his next target is "twerk queen" Miley Cyrus.
Her much publicized twerking performance with Robin Thicke during the MTV's Video Music Awards got Mayweather's attention.
“I was thinking about letting the twerk queen Miley Cyrus bring me out,” Mayweather said. “Why not? We’ve gotta call her the twerk queen. Yes, we have to call her that.”
Mayweather explained why he invited Bieber to walk him out before the Saul "Canelo" Alvarez fight.
“When you’re the best, you only want to surround yourself with the best.” he said. “He’s an exceptional artist. He’s the future.”
