Justin Bieber and boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. spend time with one another here and there, but exactly how close are they?

When Mayweather enters the arena for a boxing match, he is accompanied by a posse – and usually in that posse is the 21-year-old Bieber.

Wednesday night (Mar. 11) in Los Angeles, Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao were taking part in a press conference for their upcoming bout May 2. In attendance was Bieber, but unannounced was Bieber walking up on stage and joining his buddy Mayweather for a photo op.

The pop singer had a a lot of nerve jumping up on stage and interrupting Mayweather’s moment – as if Bieber is more important.

Then hours later after the conference, TMZ caught Bieber on the sidewalk and asked him if he was Mayweather’s “sidekick,” to which Bieber instantly denied such a thing.

Sidekick or not, the Biebs needs to slow his role and let Mayweather focus on “The Fight of the Century.”
