Floyd Mayweather Jr. defeated Mexican superstar Canelo Alvarez rather easily on Saturday night, earning the decision for the 45th win of his incredible career and a ridiculous $41.5 million paycheck in the process. In fact, for just two fights this year, Mayweather will have earned north of $90 million, which is just absolutely mind-boggling. Somewhere out there, a doctor is on the verge of curing cancer and we’ll probably never know his name, but had he just agreed to get punched in the face a few times, he could have been a household name. ONLY IN AMERICA!
Nevertheless, people simply love watching Mayweather toy with and beat the piss out of his competition fight after fight, and that’s why the A-listers were out in full force in Las Vegas on Saturday night. But it all begins with the Man of the Hour and Mayweather’s ring entrance entourage that featured rapper Lil Wayne and pop star and Superman villain Justin Bieber, as they stole the show to become the most punchable faces of the night.
And there were plenty of other stars there, from Denzel Washington and Jack Nicholson to Paul Pierce and Magic Johnson. While boxing may be stale, repetitive and riddled with controversy, it certainly isn’t lacking in star power.

Excuse me, are you 1 Chainz? Oh, 2 Chainz, my apologies.
More like Busta bag of potato chips open, am I right? Just kidding, please don’t kill me.
Hey, no moonlighting, pal.
Never one to shy away from a wager, Charles Barkley probably had a few bucks on Mayweather, the decision, the time that the fight would end, what clothes he would wear to the fight, the temperature in Las Vegas and how many fingers I’m holding up.
“Haha, no I don’t have any machetes… but I will kill you.”
Denzel is so cool that he just sits there and talks to no one because no one deserves to talk to him.
Diddy, on the other hand, runs around screaming, “Hey everyone, look at me! I’m Diddy! Hey, it’s me, Diddy!”
I’m convinced that Don Cheadle is the coolest man on the planet.
One of these men took a kidney from his wife and then cheated on her with a prostitute. The other is Danny Trejo.
Don’t get any ideas, Strahan. She’s spoken for by every nerd on the Internet.
I have no proof of this, but I believe that Heidi Klum’s diet is 10 stem cell smoothie servings per day.
A great preliminary fight would have been Nicholson versus Bieber.
Bruckheimer looking like a million bucks. Of course, that’s not one of the many million bucks spent on The Lone Ranger, because that has been lost.
I like to imagine this reaction was natural.
Ah, true love.
Word is Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus are officially splitsville after months of speculation. Now we can focus on what really matters – how bad of an actor he is.
This is such a strange inclusion.
I wish that Mayweather had fought a redneck boxer so he could have come out with LL Cool J rapping his part of “Accidental Racist.”
The world’s greatest fighter, as he defeated HIV.
I bet Macy could whoop some ass. Phelps, not as much. I imagine someone would punch Phelps and he’d yawn and ask where his bong is.
My favorite outfit of the night, hands down.
Sweet YOLO hat, 35-year old man.
I’ll tell you what, Rosie’s still got it.
Atta boy, Great One.
