The popstar offered to go up against the Jack Reacher actor earlier this week, announcing his intentions with a tweet that read: “I wanna challenge Tom Cruise to fight in the octagon. Tom if you dont take this fight your scared and you will never live it down.” [sic]
He told the website: “It was just a random tweet. I do that stuff sometimes.
“I think he’d probably whup my ass in a fight,” Justin continued. “I’d have to get in some good shape.
“I think he’d probably be out of my weight class.”
A wise choice, we think.
While Tom didn’t respond to Biebs’ challenge, cage fighter Conor McGregor did offer to help put the event on, stating that his entertainment company would make it happen.
This matter aside, 2019 is turning out to be a big year for Justin, who is currently riding high at the top of the UK singles charts with his Ed Sheeran collaboration I Don’t Care.
Meanwhile, Tom recently starred in his sixth Mission Impossible film – once again, doing all his own stunts – and will also take the lead in the new Top Gun movie, which is out next year.
