Justin Bieber is heading back to Las Vegas to represent for the money team.

"On my way to see the champ. #vegas," the "Boyfriend" singer tweeted Saturday, referencing his pal Floyd Mayweather's highly anticipated boxing match against Canelo Alvarez tonight.

This isn't the first time the Biebs has shown up to support Mayweather.

Bieber popped up in the ring with the boxer in May 2012 after Mayweather defeated Miguel Cotto for the junior middleweight title.

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.

Sounds like this sports event is going to be star-studded!
