Mayweather Jr. in Casino Standoff with Rap Star

1/6/2010 2:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Floyd Mayweather Jr. was ready to rumble with a famous nemesis in Vegas this weekend -- but just before a fight broke out, Diddy saved the day.



It all went down at the grand opening of Vanity nightclub in the Hard Rock Hotel -- which was hosted by Diddy. We're told Floyd Mayweather Jr. rolled over to the party to see Diddy, when he literally ran into rapper Rick Ross.

Sources tell TMZ one of the men "bumped" into the other man and their entourages immediately became "confrontational."

But as things started to heat up, we're told Diddy swooped in between the guys and calmed everyone down.

We called Mayweather's camp for comment and his father, Floyd Mayweather Sr., told us there's been beef between Floyd and Ross for a while because Ross has allegedly been, "talking s**t."

We're told both Mayweather Jr. and Ross eventually went back in the club and partied the rest of the night away without incident.

Calls to Rick Ross were not returned. No comment from Camp Diddy.

mayweather doesnt really care about legacy or even his dumb fans. we have to realize that floyd is only after the money. it is all about the money. you could listen to ra rugged man's interview, and know all about floyd. he said: legacy doesnt pay your bills, he is not avoiding fighters, shane is on steroid, philippines got the best enhancement drugs and most especially he believes that if he leaves boxing world, BOXING WILL DIE. is floyd on drugs??! for him to say that is like saying he is the god of the boxing world. if you dumb floyd fanatics does love him still, all of you should be tested for olympic style of drug test. youre all on drugs man. maybe its time to show him, we fanatics of boxing teach him a lesson...

It's clear that Mark (posting 13) is a racist. With that out of the way...I'll say that it's embarrassing when you have some black people (my people) that gain some wealth and feel as though they're high and mighty looking down on others including the law. It seems like both parties have big egos and were looking for anything that showed disrespect....i'm sure if one of the entourage came within a foot of each other someone in the group would feel that they were disrespected...GIVE ME A BREAK. All i say is grow up and stop embarrasing our people.

Floyd talks trash about everyone. He thinks he's one big bad ass and thus far he's been allowed but his day will come and someone will smash him to bits.

I can't wait.
