McCarran International Airport was filled with private jets for Saturday night’s boxing match. Celebrities and millionaires from all over the globe flew into the airport to watch the Floyd Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao fight, which was the highest-grossing of all time. According to ESPN, most people paid about $100 to watch the fight from the comforts of their own homes, but those who could afford it flew to Las Vegas to catch the action live.
Photos of the airport are pretty incredible, as planes were overlapped just to fit.

McCarran International Airport has not seen this many private jets in a while. However, people just could not miss the fight and planned on finding their own way into Sin City, perhaps not worrying about getting a “parking spot.”
According to the Washington Post, the MGM Grand was filled with A-listers.
Jay Z and Beyonce, Lil Wayne and Ciara, Clint Eastwood, Justin Bieber, P Diddy and his girl Cassie Ventura, Drew Barrymore, Adrien Brody, Michael Keaton, Sugar Ray Leonard, Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin (True Blood), Ben Affleck, Nicki Minaj, Julie Chen, Patriots owner Robert Kraft (and Patriots players including Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski, Danny Amendola, and Julian Edelman who flew in following the Kentucky Derby), and Mark Wahlberg were all spotted around the ring.
And the party didn’t stop after last night’s fight. There were several after parties filled with the biggest names in Hollywood. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Floyd did some celebrating after the match. He reportedly stashed $250,000 to bring to a strip club after the fight. It is unknown if that’s actually what went down, but chances are he made a few stops to different places last night.
The nightlife in Las Vegas is non-stop, so there were plenty of places to go and things to do after the fight. Naturally, some people hopped back on their planes and headed out, but others stayed the night and are leaving today or tomorrow.
While not everyone took a private jet, McCarran International Airport was beyond busy yesterday. It has since cleared out significantly.
