The Popdust Files: justin bieber, sports

Over the weekend, Justin Bieber made headlines (can this guy go one weekend where he doesn’t do anything but order delivery and catch up on his HBO?) for his ringside appearance with Floyd Mayweather before the boxer’s showdown with Miguel Cotto for the welterweight world title. Mayweather won—of course—which got us to thinking about all the other moments of great athletic triumphs which Bieber just happened to be around to experience, which we’ve assembled photographically below. Taken in totality, you have to start thinking it’s more than just coincidence, don’t you?
