Floyd Mayweather Jr. is known for having some of the most polarizing figures in the entertainment business accompany him to the ring before fights. Whether you love her or despise her, there is really no arguing that Miley Cyrus has perfected the art of creating a buzz. That’s why she makes perfect sense for The Money Team.

During a recent interview with Billboard, Mayweather spoke about some of his favorite musicians and how he chooses the artists who walk him out to the ring.

“When you’re the best, you only want to surround yourself with the best,” Mayweather explained. “(Bieber is) an exceptional artist. He’s the future.”

Apparently Floyd feels that Miley shares some of those characteristics with Bieber.

“I was thinking about letting the twerk queen, Miley Cyrus, bring me out,” he said enthusiastically. “Why not? We’ve gotta call her the twerk queen. Yes, we have to call her that.”

Unfortunately, he’s probably not joking. Mayweather is an expert at maximizing ratings and revenue for everything he does, hence why his Money Mayweather brand is unprecedented across sports. He'd look ridiculous having this nut job by his side as he prepares to defend his title, but that never stopped him before. Bieber looked completely out of place posing with Mayweather after Floyd beat Miguel Cotto, but he was invited back for the Canelo Alvarez fight. Don’t be surprised to see Miley next time.

  • Miley...seriously GIRL; have you NOT embarrased yourself enough? For once, can't you think of your family first???? They are involved by proxy. IE; I'm sure they were great parents, soooo, WHAT HAPPENED?
  • Miley has good handlers and I'm doubtful she will merge her brand to the brand of a convicted person.

    Cyndi Lauper was a person with 10 times the talent and she linked herself to Capt. Lou Albano in pro wrestling.....her career nosedived. The good news is her talent ruled and MANY years later she showed the world she had immense talent

    Miley has no talent...this could be a career killer
