Mayweather v. Pacquiao.. What You Maybe Missed

Saturday night was the long awaited boxing match between Floyd "Money" Mayweather, Jr. and Manny "Pac Man" Pacquiao. Mayweather calls himself "Money" for good reason.. he is the world's highest paid athlete. He was paid $180 million (win or lose) for this fight, while Pacquiao was paid $120 million (win or lose). The fight took place in Las Vegas and was only available via Pay Per View.

I watched the fight on Saturday night and I had thought it was a close match, but most people think Mayweather beat Pacquiao by a landslide. Many celebrities were in the audience, including Beyonce and Jay Z, Paris Hilton, Ben Affleck and Drew Barrymore. But who really stole the spotlight from the famous boxers before the match were the surprise people in their entourage.

When Manny Pacquiao had his big intro as he walked to the ring, we could see him walking followed by a crowd of people. But if you looked closer, you could see that Jimmy Kimmel was behind him in disguise!!! We didn't see him at first until a girl sitting next to me said something.

He was wearing a strange hat, a chain, and a t-shirt that showed a Pac Man eating Mayweather faces (above).

Hilarious! This is yet another reason why Jimmy Kimmel is one of the funniest people on television! Soooo random. He was definitely the last person I was expecting to see.

Then, when Mayweather came out for his grand entrance to the ring, he was followed by 2 other familiar faces. The BURGER KING (?!?!)  and the Biebs.... Justin Bieber! random is that? We all really got a good laugh from all of this. 

I wish Pacquiao had won, but there's always next year! 

Let me know what you thought of the match!
