Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s bromance with Lil’ Wayne and Justin Bieber was on full display during fight night Saturday.
As the 36-year-old pro boxer walked to the ring to face off with Mexican fighter Canelo Alvarez, he was escorted by Wayne, who walked beside him rapping a live remix of his hit “A Milli.”
Meanwhile, the 19-year-old pop star strolled along the other side of Mayweather adorned in all black and black shades.
There is one undeniable trait this sundry trio has in common – money.
Money Mayweather reportedly has an estimated net worth of $170 million, making approximately $50 million each time he sets his fancy footsteps in the ring.
The 30-year-old founder of Young Money Entertainment reportedly bank rolls a net worth of $135 million, and Bieber follows closely behind with a reported net worth of $130 million.
In a true show of support, the “Beauty and the Beat” singer even flew his entourage to Las Vegas to enjoy the festivities of the big fight.
He was spotted boarding a private plane Sept. 14 with Lil Twist, Lil Za and others, according to TMZ.
“On my way to see the champ #vegas,” he tweeted Saturday.
Touching down, Bieber joined his friend backstage and posted an Instagram photo of him with the champ.
“Me and @floydmayweather right now before the fight,” he wrote before plugging a promotional bit. “Go to showtime.net and order on PPW now.”
But the love is mutual. Mayweather posted an Instagram snapshot with the pop star backstage before the fight. In the photo he looks to be schooling the youngster as Bieber intently listens.
After escorting the fighter to the ring, Wayne settled into his ringside seat but forgot one essential item … his shirt. Bieber, on the other hand, wasn’t seen until the fight’s completion.
“Proud to be a part of the legacy of one of the greatest athletes that ever lived,” the Cash Money Millionaire’s president tweeted. “And that’s the legacy of the great Floyd “$” Mayweather TMT!”
Although Mayweather was victorious, one judge considered the battle a draw and the “Boyfriend” singer didn’t approve.
“Who calls a draw?” he tweeted shortly after the conclusion of the title bout at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. “That guy was watching the wrong fight. @FloydMayweather is the greatest. #MoneyTeam still #undefeated.”
Mayweather, Bieber and Wayne first developed their friendship in 2012 when the championship boxer defeated Miguel Cotto in 12 rounds by a unanimous decision. The rapper and young crooner became a staple in Mayweather’s ringside entourage and their bond continues.
One can only imagine what events took place in Sin City after Mayweather left the ring.
Bieber’s last tweet of the evening was “Gotta go.”
