The Fight of the Decade/Fight of the Century between winner Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr. of Las Vegas and Saul “Canelo” Alvarez of Guadalajara, Mexico, at MGM Grand Garden Arena on Saturday night drew Hollywood, music and sports stars to Las Vegas, and it wouldn’t be a fight-and-party weekend without Sean “Diddy” Combs hosting a big-time bash.

Hip-hop legend Diddy did just that with his “Fight Night After-Party” at the Palms Pool and nearby Rain. Diddy celebrated the victory by Mayweather Jr., whose victory streak is now at 45, with Tyga, Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, Bow Wow, Lil Wayne, Meek Mill, DJ Clue, Flo Rida, Lil Kim, Mally Mal, Claudia Jordan and Don Benjamin.

DJ Drama spun a high-energy set of hits for thousands of guests, and the crowd ignited around 4 a.m. when Diddy, Ross, Tyga, 2 Chainz and Meek Mill hit the stage to perform. No doubt that Diddy’s Ciroq was the choice vodka of the night.

Spotted in the lounge at nearby N9NE Steakhouse before heading over to Diddy’s party separately were James Harden of the Houston Rockets, Jason Terry of the Boston Celtics, Mike Bibby of the New York Knicks, ESPN analyst Jalen Rose and Antonio Cromartie of the New York Jets.

Thanks to Joe Fury of 9 Group for his fight-night after-party photo gallery.
