Fight weekend brought out a bevy of celebrities hosting parties across Las Vegas. Before Floyd Mayweather Jr. stepped in the ring to defeat Manny Pacquiao on Saturday night, three-time Grammy Award-winning artist Puff Daddy hosted a party at Foxtail Pool Club inside SLS Las Vegas on Saturday afternoon.

The rapper got the crowd excited as he walked into the party, and his entourage hyped up bystanders as he danced his way onto the stage with rapper Mase. The duo performed their “Bad Boy” hits as Young Money mogul Lil Wayne joined them on stage. Puff Daddy even announced his Bad Boy 20th Anniversary Tour, taking place exclusively at Foxtail Pool Club.

Then he gave up the stage to rapper Akon, who performed his single “Sour Survivor.”

Puff Daddy hung out in a VIP cabana, popping bottles of Ciroc with singer Christina Milian and his crew.

Other celebrities on hand included Sports Illustrated swimsuit models Genevieve Morton, Kim Glass, Anastasia Ashley, Samantha Hoopes and Hailey Clauson, as well as model and actor Tyson Beckford, hip-hop artists 2 Chainz, Jeremih and Future and “Gossip Girl” star Ed Westwick.

On Friday night, Puff Daddy hosted a private fight-weekend bash at Lavo at the Palazzo.

Notable names who converged on the event included Stephen Espinoza, the executive vice president and general manager of Showtime Sports, actor Bradley Cooper, producer Jerry Bruckheimer and filmmaker Brett Ratner, along with retired boxer Lennox Lewis, hip-hop artists Swizz Beatz and Fabolous, R&B singer Tyrese Gibson and singer Cassie.
