What, did you think the biggest money fight in boxing history would get through its only presser WITHOUT the Biebs?

Noted Floyd Mayweather friend and international celebrity Justin Bieber managed to sneak his way into today's Mayweather vs Pacquiao press conference, coming in at the tail end of the event when the two sides were coming together to pose for press photos for their historic, long-awaited May 2 fight.

Did Bieber think, "You know, I don't really need to be here, this is a monumental thing, it's just cool that I was able to attend up close and personal like I was, being a pal of Floyd's and all, and no doubt I could get a photo with the two of them in a half hour or whatever"?

No! Justin Bieber needed the press to get shots of Justin Bieber, too. Justin Bieber.

Now, if you think I'm taking this too seriously and being too hateful and old, understand that this is very funny to me, I am not at all upset, and I am thrilled that this happened. I love it. It's almost too good.
