LAST NIGHT, CELEBRITIES descended on Las Vegas to watch what was widely billed as a once-in-a-lifetime bout between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao.

Mayweather was the victor, winning on a judge’s decision, and the general consensus was that the fight itself was, well, a little dull.

But even if the fight itself was less exciting than expected, it was worth watching for the celebrity spotting alone.

Denzel Washington, P. Diddy, Mark Wahlberg, Jake Gyllenhaal, Claire Danes, Don Cheadle and Paris Hilton were among the famous faces who shelled out the big bucks to be there.

Even Beyoncé and Jay-Z showed up.

But perhaps the real highlight of the event was the entrance.

Floyd Mayweather walked to the ring with a Burger King mascot and Justin Bieber following closely behind him.

It was insane.

Meanwhile, Manny Pacquiao was accompanied by none other than comedian Jimmy Kimmel as he made his way into the ring.

It was quite the sight.

So, what was with the outfit?

Well, it seems it was a not-so-subtle burn directed squarely at Bieber.

Kimmel’s get-up was based on Bieber’s look at the Mayweather vs. Maidana fight last year.

It didn’t go unnoticed.

After the fight, Jimmy Kimmel sent his commiserations to Manny Pacquiao and thanked him for allowing him to be his Bieber.

We give this one to Jimmy Kimmel.
