If you were watching the fight on Saturday, you probably had a simple enough question: What the hell was Jimmy Kimmel doing walking in behind Manny Pacquiao?
No seriously, what in the flying f**k was Kimmel doing right behind Pacquiao during one of the biggest sporting events of the year?

The answer is that when Pacquiao joined Jimmy Kimmel Live in April, Kimmel asked Pacquiao whether he would consider allowing Kimmel to join his entourage. “I will,” he said. Pacquiao, a man of his word, obviously decided it was a great idea.
Supposedly, Kimmel was going for a Bieber-esque look, since Bieber always seems to be within five feet of Mayweather when he’s fighting.
