Undefeated boxing champ Floyd Mayweather, Jr. sat next to singer Rihanna at the 2015 BET Awards (by the Black Entertainment Television network) but got something he totally did not expect: his mouth was taped shut with duct tape by his lovely seatmate!

The moment swiftly went viral – with many people laughing at Floyd’s stunned expression and wondering how Rihanna was able to achieve that stunt and get the boxing champ to keep quiet but many speculate (and rightfully so!) that this whole thing was staged.

After all, this man is undefeated in the ring by close to 50 strong boxers yet the slim singer had easily placed the duct tape over his mouth! Plus, Rihanna’s attending a music awards ceremony – why would she be carrying duct tape, anyway???

Then, gossip site e-online shared the following photo of the pair – certainly, this proves that the whole thing was staged right? Still, staged or not, a lot of people enjoyed the photo of Mayweather “subdued” by the duct tape.
