Hats off to Jimmy Kimmel, who stole the show at the "Fight of the Century" as he took a pop at Justin Bieber.

The tv host surprised the star studded audience when he entered the auditorium at the MGM Grand as part of Manny Pacquiao's entourage.

However, it appears that the plan was hatched when Manny was a guest on Jimmy's late night chat show in April.

"I would love to be a part of your entourage. I really would. Can I?" Jimmy begged the Filipino boxer.

The 36-year-old fighter agreed, and the deal obviously went ahead as the chat show presenter donned a fedora, sports jacket, gold chains and an all-black outfit for the highly anticipated entrance.

Ensuring it was a moment to remember, Kimmel got crafty with his choice of sweater.

He fittingly wore a jumper which bore a large Pacman (representing Manny's nickname) gobbling up mini images of opponent Floyd Mayweather's head.

The outfit was a tongue-in-cheek response to similar attire that Justin Bieber has worn when he accompanied Mayweather in the past.
