Sept. 16 (UPI) -- There were plenty of celebrities filling the seats Saturday at Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena -- including Seth MacFarlane, Denzel Washington, Michael Phelps and Diddy. They turned up to watch American Floyd Mayweather Jr. handily defeat Mexico's Canelo Alvarez after 12 rounds of boxing.

But Mayweather also entered the arena with his own pair of celebrity escorts, rapper Lil Wayne and singer Justin Bieber. Lil Wayne performed his track "A Millie" on one side of the undefeated Mayweather, while the 19-year-old Bieber looked aloof in sunglasses.

"Proud to be a part of the legacy of one of the greatest athletes that ever lived. & that's the legacy of the great Floyd "$" Mayweather," Weezy tweeted Saturday.

"#MoneyTeam #thechamp #undefeated," Bieber captioned an image of himself next to Mayweather.
