The result cards are in and nobody liked watching Floyd Mayweather beat Manny Pacquiao with his trademark defensive style last night in Las Vegas. The fight stunk. It was slow, plodding, and, worst of all, Bieber's buddy won. Again. Thankfully, there were some pre-fight happenings that made sitting through the endless build-up tolerable.

Jimmy Kimmel was part of Manny Pacquiao's entourage during introductions

This is very weird, but less so when you discover Kimmel begged the Filipino fighter for the opportunity just a few days ago on his show:

Then, Jamie Foxx sang an even weirder "Star Spangled Banner"

Judging by Foxx's reaction at the end, even he didn't know quite what to make of his warbling version of our country's national anthem. And someone needs to shoot the organ player.

Plus, the crowd was typically star-studded so it was fun seeing who loves boxing enough to pay thousands of dollars for a ringside seat. Here's the list:

Beyonce and Jay-Z

The Southpaw team of Jake Gyllenhaal and Antoine Fuqua

The Training Day team of Denzel Washington and Fuqua 

Birdman himself, Michael Keaton
