Safe to say Justin Bieber and Lil’ Wayne are official members of The Money Team. The pop and hip-hop stars had the honor of walking boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. to the ring at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena on Saturday night leading up to his anticipated match versus Saul “Canelo” Alvarez. The best pound-for-pound boxer was escorted by Bieber and Weezy, as the latter performed his 2008 hit-single “A Milli.” Other celebrities spotted during the match included Diddy, Magic Johnson, Wayne Gretzky, Denzel Washington, Michael Phelps, Kevin Hart, and PSY, as R&B singer Tank performed the U.S. national anthem.
In the end, Floyd Mayweather defeated Canelo Alvarez by majority decision to improve to 45-0. “Who calls a draw? That guy was watching the wrong fight. @FloydMayweather is the greatest. #MoneyTeam still #undefeated,” tweeted Bieber following the fight. “Proud to be a part of the legacy of one of the greatest athletes that ever lived. & that’s the legacy of the great Floyd “$” Mayweather TMT!,” said Wayne on his Twitter account shortly after.
Both Justin and Lil’ Wayne joined Mayweather in the ring after defeating Miguel Cotto in May 2012.
