So what the hell was Justin Beiber doing with the one and only Floyd Mayweather in Vegas Saturday night? Lil Wayne? Wayne was rapping and walking by the side as Mayweather made his way to the MGM Grand’s ring for a brutal battle with Marcos Maidana. But why was Bieber to Floyd’s right? And why wasn’t he singing?
With no show Saturday night, this homealone boy thought he’s invest in the show. $75 in HD on Time Warner. An expensive evening for sure and personally, I thought it would be a waste. Word on the street was Mayweather, who has never lost a fight, would pulverize the 30 year old Argentina. But, you know, that’s why they play the game and while it sure wasn’t the sweetest of sciences we were getting but it was a bloody match up. After the fight, after Floyd had, rightfully in my opinion, won the brutal from one set of ropes to another battle, Floyd claimed, he could have danced away but chose to give the audience a show. Yes, repeat, no.
Mayweather is 37 years old and he couldn’t get out iof the way fast enough at first, around round seven the man made the necessary adjustments and took the last four out of five rounds. He is a great boxer and he fought the match he was given but, yeah, he showed his age.
Watching a great boxer is either a study in red blood if not redrum or a study in dancing: slipping from being hit while deftly landing one, two, three punches in a row. It is like Gene Kelly or maybe Justin Timberlake: it is all fluidity and movement, smash bang attack retreat retreat. And for me, the viewer, it was a lot like blood lust. Without caring that much who won (Lennox Lewis was the last boxer I actively supported: he wasn’t fun but he was a winner through and through), I went from supporting one boxer to the other dependent solely on my blood lust at any given moment. Floyd : “It was a tough, competitive fight. I gave the fans what the fans wanted to see. Normally, I box and move. Finally, I was in a tough, competitive fight. Tonight, I wanted to stand there and fight and give the fans their money’s worth.” E wanted blood.
Bieber? Bieber is one of the boys for sure but only while surrounded by bodyguards. The last time I saw him, at MSG, he was pulling muscle from the shell, and claiming he was the strongest guy on the stage. His band seemed to be agreeing between gritted teeth though at least in one sense Bieber was right: the man who signs the check is always the strongest guy on stage. So I guess that’s what Bieber was doing with the champ.
