Well I certainly wasn't expecting this one! And I even more surely couldn't make this kind of stuff up. As ridiculous as it sounds, Floyd Mayweather says Prince Jackson, the "son" of pop legend Michael Jackson, is a fan of contact sports and plans on working with him in his Las Vegas gym once he returns from absconding around the world.

"Oh yeah Prince, he likes contact sports," Mayweather told TMZ Sports. "I haven't worked with him yet, but I look forward to working with him when I get back to Las Vegas."

TMZ also approached Prince's uncle, Jermain Jackson, about whether his nephew was the newest member of The Money Team. While he affirmed that Prince is a fan of TMT, he says he's not an official member of the group - not that he has much say in that anyway. This does beg the question, however, how does Justin Beiber feel about a new guy coming in and infringing on his bromance with Mayweather.

God help us all...
