Boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. wants none other than Miley Cyrus, who he calls the "Twerk Queen," to be the next music star to walk him to the ring, he told Billboard's Jason Lipshutz backstage at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas yesterday (September 21).

"I was thinking about letting the twerk queen Miley Cyrus bring me out, why not?," Mayweather said, mulling his next stroll to the ring.

Cyrus certainly wouldn't be the first music phenom to do the honors. Both Lil Wayne and Justin Bieber have walked Mayweather to the ring in 2013.

Why Bieber? "When you're the best, you only want to surround yourself with the best," Mayweather said. "He's an exceptional artist. He's the future."
