Floyd Mayweather is used to making a big impression but even for a man nicknamed ‘Money’, his ring entrance prior to his win over Marcos Maidana was particularly flashy.
Mayweather, who beat Maidana in a majoirty decision to unify their welterweight titles, roped in two of music’s most influential figures to accompany him to the ring in Las Vegas.
On his right was rapper Lil Wayne, performing his new track ‘Believe Me’ as Mayweather moved ominously to the ring.
And on his left was a certain Justin Bieber, who has become great pals with the best pound-for-pound boxer in the world and was enjoying the spotlight before, during and after the huge bout.

After Mayweather's victory, Bieber told his 51.3 million followers on Twitter:
It is not the first time that Bieber and Lil Wayne have accompanied Mayweather on a ring walk, but certainly the first time that they have been joined by a whole circus troupe too.
The Canadian pop sensation even joined his boxing buddy for a pre-fight health spa earlier this week and Bieber has previously performed at Mayweather’s 13-year-old daughter’s birthday.
But as Saturday night proved, he is now a firm fixture in the Mayweather camp having first joined the team for the win over Canelo Alvarez in September.
