Mayweather to Bar:

You Lied About

Me And Biebs

Floyd Mayweather
says he's no winer ... and that's why he's suing a New Orleans wine bar that he claims used him and Justin Bieber to lure Super Bowl fans in for a pre-game blow-out.

According to the federal lawsuit -- obtained by TMZ -- Mayweather claims The Wine Bistro heavily advertised that Floyd and The Money Team would be hosting the February 1 bash. In case you don't know, The Money Team is a nickname for Floyd's posse, which includes Justin Bieber, Lil' Kim, 50 Cent and Miss Jackson.

Floyd -- who in the lawsuit calls himself "the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world and one of the greatest technical fighters of all time" -- boasts he makes upwards of $100k for a club appearance.

But here's the deal ... Floyd says he never agreed to appear at The Wine Bistro -- nor did The Money Team -- and the bar went crazy advertising on Facebook, YouTube and flyers. Floyd is pissed that the bar profited off his name and worries his fans will be pissed because he was a no-show.

Floyd wants lots of money and wants the bar to stop using his name ... STAT!

Of course I would not waste my time to run out to a bar to see Mayweather or Biebs! But this situation has happened to me before. A club here in Charlotte posted online back in 2006 that Donna summer would be performing. They even printed flyers! Word of mouth swept through the city and a lot of people drove in from all over the region. On the night of the appearance with a packed house, they presented Donna Summer to us enthusiastically only for us to determine this person was in fact a female impersonator impersonating Donna Summer!! The owner of the club locked herself in her office and refused to come out while patrons banged furiously on her office door demanding a refund. She never came out....
