Beyonce, Jay Z, Justin Bieber, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj & More Attend Mayweather-Pacquiao Fight: 7 Photos
On May 2, pop and rap superstars filed inside Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Arena for what was billed as the fight of the century: the undefeated Floyd Mayweather against fan favorite Manny Pacquiao.
Celebrity couples included Beyonce and Jay Z, Puff Daddy and Cassie, Lil Wayne and Christina Milian, and Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill. R&B singer Mary J. Blige was among the 16,000-plus spectators watching closely. Justin Bieber walked Mayweather out to the ring to face his opponent, though as Pitch Perfect star Anna Kendrick points out, they were upstaged by The Burger King — yes, the fast food mascot.
Among mostly Pacquiao fans, Mayweather won by an unanimous decision — what some (like Rebel Heart featured artist Mike Tyson) considered to be anti-climatic. At least the star-studded crowd was interesting to see, though. Check out the celebrity appearances in the gallery up top.
