Watch: Jamie Foxx performs anthem at Mayweather-Pacquiao fight

Sunday May 3rd, 2015

Actor and singer Jamie Foxx performed the national anthem at the Floyd Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao fight Saturday night.

According to ESPN's Lindsay Czarniak, Mayweather has asked Foxx to sing the national anthem "for years," and Foxx promised to do so if a fight with Pacquiao finally happened. 

Foxx has released four studio albums and has a fifth, Hollywood, set to be released in the coming weeks. He has also starred in movies such as Django Unchained, Ray, Law Abiding Citizen and, recently, Annie.
