Justin Bieber Will Walk Floyd Mayweather Out

Justin Bieber will be walking Floyd Mayweather Jr. out to the ring on May 2. Floyd will be fighting Manny Pacquiao in the richest fight in boxing history. About.me said that the fight itself has already garnered a massive amount of attention, but a superstar like Justin Bieber adds even more attention to the show.

Bieber and Mayweather have been friends for the last several years, but their relationship does seem a bit strange. The fact that Bieber is walking Floyd to the ring is nothing new, but Bieber and Pacquiao do not like each other. Justin Bieber once posted pictures on Twitter of Manny Pacquiao being knocked out.

On May 2, Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao will finally meet, and Justin Bieber will be there to hold Floyd’s hand along the way. However, Justin will not be able to help Floyd in the fight, but he can try to sing him to victory. Manny Pacquiao is not too shabby of a singer himself, and maybe Manny and Bieber can sing a duet after the big fight. For more information on Justin Bieber and Floyd Mayweather, visit Yahoo! Sports.

Restaurant Offers Manny Pacquiao Free Food for Life If He Beats Mayweather Jr.

The much hyped fight of Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. has some pretty high stakes. There’s more than just glory and ego on the line of the May 2nd fight in Las Vegas.

Gerry’s Grill in Artesia, Calif is a Filipino restaurant that the celebrated boxer reportedly frequents and has offered to give him as many free meals as he likes for the rest of his life, with no menu restrictions if he wins the fight said Brad Reifler. Besides winning the match, only Pacquaio himself, and not any of his entourage, which often includes 50 members of his friends and family, can get free food, and he only eats for free when he eats in the restaurant. But no matter what it’s a pretty sweet deal, and one that many people would love to have on the table.According to TMZ Sports, the restaurant offered the deal to the 36 year old boxer and promised to “keep him rolling in Chicken Adobo” for as long as he lives, saying that they love the boxer and his entourage. No matter what the outcome Gerry’s Grill is certain to get some incredible publicity from the offer, and apparently already has a huge fan in the Filopino superstar and his friends and family.
