Oh yes, wait! Do you remember about Justin Bieber’s 2019 fight challenge for Tom Cruise? Yes, its still on and he is pretty much sure of beating him.
Justin Bieber first made the challenge on twitter in 2019. He tweeted: I wanna challenge Tom Cruise to fight in the octagon. Tom if you don’t take this fight your scared and you will never live it down. Who is willing to put on the fight?
Less than a year, Justin revealed that although his original tweet was him “just being stupid”, he would now be down for the MMA fight.
Here’s what the singer said while appearing on James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke.
When James asked about his challenge, Justin revealed, “I was just being stupid, to be honest. Not stupid but then people were like, ‘yea, I wanna see this happen.’ Then I was like, ‘You know what, that could actually be funny.”
On this point, the host assured Justin that Tom would literally kick his butt, but Justin was so confident on his belief of beating Tom. “I’m trying to let my ego get in the way, but there’s absolutely no way. He is not the guy you see in movies,” Justin revealed.
Once again, James tried to wan Justin by saying that a 57-year-old Tom is in phenomenal shape, to which he responded saying, “That doesn’t mean you are a good fighter. See, I start to get frustrated cause you are really boiling me up man, (he laughed). I think you are mesmerized by the characters he plays. I’m dangerous. My agility is insane.”
In the end of the conversation, Justin and James enjoyed an arm wrestle in the car, to which Justin won and James retorted: “You still couldn’t beat Tom Cruise.”
