- Bieber set for Mayweather's ring walk
Pop music star Justin Bieber says he'll be at Floyd Mayweather's side when the unbeaten American walks to the ring on May 2 to take on Manny Pacquiao in their welterweight world title super-fight. Bieber, a friend of Mayweather who has accompanied the fighter to the ring at other fights, told celebrity website TMZ.com that he would be part of the boxer's entourage for the long anticipated bout with Filipino ring icon Pacquiao in Las Vegas. Bieber, a onetime teenage heart-throb, has in recent years found himself in trouble for run-ins with authority ranging in seriousness from egg-throwing vandalism to alleged assault on a photographer in Argentina and a limo driver in Canada. Rapper Ludacris told interviewer DJ Envy on the radio show "The Breakfast Club" that Mayweather, whose unblemished 47-0 record has helped him become the highest-paid sportsman in the world, is training as never before.

- Hamilton dodges downpour to grab Malaysia pole
Peerless Lewis Hamilton waited out a torrential downpour before snatching pole position at the Malaysian Grand Prix in a wet and wild qualifying session on Saturday. The Mercedes driver and reigning world champion set a fastest time of 1min 49.834sec, ahead of Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel, after rain halted qualifying for 35 minutes. The commanding drive from Hamilton, hit by mechanical problems this week, will fuel his charge towards a second race win after he dominated the season-opener in Australia. Vettel was the day's other big winner and he whooped and hollered to his team as he seized second place from Mercedes' Nico Rosberg in the dying seconds.
