Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Robert Guerrero at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday, May 4, 2013. Mayweather Jr. won a unanimous decision to retain his welterweight titles.

It was an all-star turnout of Hollywood, music and sports celebrities for Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr.’s unanimous 12-round decision over Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero at MGM Grand Garden Arena on Saturday night.

Rapper Lil Wayne was part of Floyd’s entourage walking into the ring, where Kelly Rowland sang the national anthem. The victory brought Floyd’s record to 44-0 and an astounding payday of $32 million.

Despite injuring his right hand in the ring during the fight, Floyd promised media, who waited 90 minutes for him to show up at the post-fight conference, that he will fight again in September. “I wanted to give the fans a KO,” said Floyd. “But I hurt my right hand.”

In the audience: Sean “Diddy” Combs, Neil Patrick Harris, Tiesto, Jon Voight, Liev Schreiber, Beau Bridges, Don Cheadle, Adrian Grenier, Busta Rhymes, Trey Songz, Pamela Anderson, Rick Ross, Guy Fieri, Eddie Marsan, Dash Mihok, Pooch Hall, Dana White, Metta World Peace and Oscar de la Hoya.

Also, Colin Kaepernick, Joe Flacco, Josh Smith, Evander Holyfield, Desmond Howard, Miguel Cotto, Danny Garcia, Amir Khan, Zab Judah, Bernard Hopkins, Andre Berto, Austin Nichols, Ben Schwartz, Larry Fitzgerald, Austin Trout, Victor Ortiz and Vernon Davis.
