LAS VEGAS, Sept. 15 (UPI) -- New video has emerged featuring Justin Bieber being denied entrance into the ring, after welterweight boxing champion Floyd Mayweather Jr., defeated Andre Berto Saturday night in Las Vegas.

The video shows the 21-year-old pop star square off with a ringside security guard, who failed to recognize Bieber despite the fact that he accompanied his close friend Mayweather to the ring before the bout started.

"You wanna be escorted out in handcuffs, young man?," the security guard is seen saying to a confused Bieber. The singer left before anything could escalate any further.

TMZ Sports has the exclusive video of the confrontation and also states that the singer was actually in the ring until police politely asked him to step out during post-fight ceremonies.

After the title fight, 38-year-old Mayweather said that it was his last match as this latest victory ties him with legendary heavyweight boxer Rocky Marciano for most wins by an unbeaten boxer.

On Thursday, Bieber was presented with a plaque for breaking a Guinness World Record for being the youngest male artist to debut at No.1 on Billboard's Hot 100 list during an appearance on The Today Show.
