A few quick reporter’s notes:
Tyrese performed the national anthem. Among the celebrities spotted from where I sat at ringside: California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, George Lopez, Mike Tyson, Charles Barkley and Sean “P.Diddy” Combs, who hosted an afternoon pool party at MGM Grand’s Wet Republic today -- click HERE for that story.
Wrestler Triple H was part of Floyd’s entourage, and “Sugar” Shane Mosley made a commotion in the ring after the bout, demanding that he have a chance at Money.
