Hollywood’s weekend was consumed by the #FightoftheCentury between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr.

3 min read

You’re probably wondering why #FightNight took over social media this weekend. Why the hell were people suddenly so interested in boxing? Well, the face off between Manny Pacquiao & Floyd Mayweather Jr. was more star studded than a red carpet event! Here’s a look at what made the #FightoftheCentury such a big deal.

Actor Jamie Foxx flagged off the fight with the national anthem but Hollywood’s unprecedented turnout was a big eye catcher too! 


Justin Beiber and Jamie Foxx get ready for the #FightoftheCentury at MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Beyonce and husband Jay Z along with Niki Minaj were in attendance. Looks like the ladies dressed up for a red carpet night but landed up at a boxing rink. 

For Drew Barrymore and her husband, it was a #datenight. Love their casual look. 

Justin Beiber posed with the champ Floyd Mayweather Jr. himself, behind the scenes.

Actor Mark Walhberg was clearly in team Manny Pacquiao.

Boxing time is selfie time! Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton was also there to witness the fight.

If all of Hollywood is going, why shouldn’t I? is probably what made Paris Hilton turn up too.

While a ton of celebs made it to Las Vegas’s MGM Grand, Jennifer Lopez and Casper watched the fist fight at home.

Kim Kardashian and husband Kanye West got another reason to call friends over for a house party.

Maybe LA doesn’t see a lot of boxing. Maybe the fighters were paid 1 million$ a minute. Maybe Hollywood is a sucker for boxing. Who knows?! We’re still wondering what the big fuss was all about!
