Justin Bieber, your time in the ring may be at an end.

After tapping the teen heartthrob and rapper Lil Wayne as his hype men for the last couple of boxing matches he won handily, Floyd Mayweather now wants twerk queen Miley Cyrus to accompany him into the ring for his next big fight.

"Yeah, she be twerkin'," the grinning champ told Howard Stern during an appearance Wednesday morning on his SiriusXM radio show. "She's like me. She's entertaining."

Those remarks echoed comments Mayweather gave to Billboard.com last weekend at Las Vegas' iHeartRadio Music Festival.

"I was thinking about lettin' the twerk queen, Miley Cyrus, bring me out. Why not? Why not?" Floyd told the site. "We gotta call her the twerk queen. Yes, we have to call her that."

Boxing fans who've watched him pummel his opponents into submission lately may have noticed that Mayweather has had Weezy, Bieber and 50 Cent among the celebs who've escorted him into the venue during his most recent bouts.

When asked how Justin made it onto his "money team," as Mayweather put it, he was quick to give Bieber props.

"When you're the best, you only want to surround yourself with the best. And he's an exceptional artist. I mean, he's the future," said the fighter.

But when asked if he liked Miley's new music, Mayweather was less enthusiastic, noting he has "an open mind."

"I'm a fan of all music," he said diplomatically.

OK, so unlike the Biebs, that's not exactly a vote of confidence in the erstwhile Disney starlet's musical talents. But nonetheless, Mayweather is gung ho to have her—or at least her booty-shaking.

No word whether Cyrus will take him up on his offer.
