Don King loves Justin Bieber.

The boxing promoter was asked about Floyd Mayweather, Jr. coming to the ring accompanied by The Biebs and Lil Wayne last week, and whether it compared unfavorably to past champions like Mike Tyson who didn’t bring celebrities to the fight.

“I think it’s wonderful! Different strokes for different folks,” replied King.

He explained that Bieber and Wayne help bring “the masses” to boxing and said he loves them both.

King called Wayne and Bieber “fabulous” and “Americana” — interesting, given that Bieber is Canadian.
