Floyd Mayweather escorted by Justin Bieber and Lil Wayne to fight

By Chelsea Lewis ,

Floyd Mayweather was once again victorious in a fight against Marcos Maidana, upholding his perfect career record, though what happened before the fight made headlines across the music industry. Mayweather was escorted into the boxing ring right beside Justin Bieber and Lil' Wayne.

Billboard reported that moments before Mayweather entered the ring at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, he was taking pictures backstage with Bieber and Lil' Wayne.

Bieber took to his Instagram account to share pictures from the backstage photo shoot. Mayweather also tweeted out some of the pictures thanking both Wayne and Bieber for their support.

On Saturday morning Lil' Wayne debuted a new song featuring Drake called "Believe Me," and during this highly publicized event Wayne played the new song as they entered into the MGM Grand ring.

Other musical celebrities attended the fight and Tyrese appeared to sing the national anthem. “This is on behalf of a racist-free America,” Tyrese said before he started performing the anthem.

ESPN reported that Mayweather won the fight by decision and that Maidana is already asking for a rematch.
