    And his friendship with the 36-year-old boxer shouldn't come as that much of a surprise.

    In the February 2012 issue of V Magazine, Bieber compared himself to the sports star, saying, "Now that I'm on top, everyone wants to bring me down…Everyone's trying to tug at me and take my spot. Like Floyd Mayweather, he's the best boxer in the world. Now he is a champion. Every time he goes to a fight now, people are like, ‘He's going to lose this time.'"

    Many more celebs are expected to attend the fight, including Diddy, Denzel Washington, Heidi Klum, Showman Jeff Beacher, Ashley Greene, Jack Nicholson, Kobe Bryant and other big names.
