Yes, you read that right. Floyd Mayweather seems to have a new BFF and it comes in the unlikely form of fresh-faced Justin Bieber. The two have apparently hung out before and Justin accompanied Mayweather to the ring of his fight against Marcos Maidana on Saturday night in Las Vegas.

Bieber's Instagram account boasts a video of the two being pampered together - Bieber got a massage while Mayweather got his tootsies seen to with a pedicure. Mayweather says: "They call this the good life. Pedicure. Massage. Make it do what it do.." to which Bieber replies, "What else is there to do?"

Well Mr Justin Bieber, there’s a pile of ironing at my house if you are really that hard up for activities.

But could there be more to this hanging out together than meets the eye? Yahoo! sports journalist Melanie Johnson thinks so. In a tweet last night she said “Just spoke to Mayweather, he told me he put in a call to Magic [Johnson] and had Justin over last night to discuss joint Clippers ownership.”
