12:29 a.m. -- And here comes Floyd Mayweather, marching to the ring with his own personal rapper. And of course, Justin Bieber. It's actually rapper Lil Wayne, performing a special-for-this-ringwalk original. The ubiquitous Sam Watson -- often confused with Al Haymon (he works for Haymon) has an arm draped over Bieber's shoulder. Bieber looks truly uncomfortable.

11:12 -- Jimmy Lennon Jr. introducing the referee (Tony Weeks) and judges. Weeks is a good ref for this fight. He's a let 'em fight kind of guy, doesn't usually get involved. Judges? They aren't going to matter.

Wow. Just tabulated my scores from Garcia-Matthysse and I had Matthysse 114-113. Gave Matthysse four of the first five rounds and six total. Five for Garcia. Garcia was in control most of the second half of the fight, but those early rounds piled up.
