Watch full video replay of Floyd Mayweather 'Grand Arrival' at MGM Grand to promote Manny Pacquiao fight

Anything Manny Pacquiao can do, Floyd Mayweather can do better?

Well, maybe not better, but certainly bolder ... and to the thumping beat of The Southern University "Human Jukebox" Marching Band.

"Money" swaggered into MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, earlier this evening for his "Grand Arrival" with all the fanfare the undefeated Welterweight boxing champion and his entourage could muster, including rapper Doug E. Fresh and comedian Ricky Smiley entertaining the crowd, as well as half-naked dancers.

Would you expect anything less?

Mayweather addressed the crowd for about four full minutes, but never once mentioned Pacquiao (watch his subdued fan rally here) or their upcoming fight, which takes place this Saturday night (May 2, 2015) on pay-per-view (PPV).

It's all about "Money" ... always.

Mayweather will cross paths with Pacquiao for the first time during fight week tomorrow at the final pre-fight press conference and then again on Friday at the official weigh-in before it's time to throwdown Saturday night.

It's going to be great.
