T.I. vs. Mayweather

Both Sides Posturing ...

Over T.I.'s Mystery Punch

5/27/2014 10:46 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0527_fatburger_fight_launch_no_swipeTMZ has sources close to both T.I. and Floyd Mayweather and it's become very clear ... each side is telling a very different version of events surrounding the fight.

No one is debating what caused it -- as TMZ first reported, it was over T.I.'s wife Tiny -- but what is up for debate ... is who hit whom during the melee.

T.I.'s side: Our T.I. sources say the rapper swung and hit Floyd ... which is what sparked the whole brawl at Fatburger in Las Vegas early Sunday morning. T.I. even hinted at the punch in an Instagram video he posted the next day.

Floyd's side: The champ is telling friends T.I. never hit him with any punch ... he only tussled with members of Floyd's security team.

You could see why each side would want to spin things. If T.I. hit Floyd, how cool is it he landed a punch against the greatest fighter around? And of course Floyd would deny it, cause what champ gets clocked by a rapper?

So the question is ...

**** tip he isn't a good rapper . Or fighter. I listen to kendrick. And floyd legally can't fight. His fist because of his sport are considered deadly weapons.

If T.I. landed a punch, it is only because he took a cheap shot and swung at him when he wasn't expecting it. Also I highly doubt T.I. would have taken that swing had it just been T.I. and Mayweather without their security teams and by themselves as everyone knows Mayweather would have knocked him out in under a minute.

Mayweathers fist are registered as lethal weapons, which means he has to show some restraint in situations like this because he could get into a lot of trouble criminally and civilly as well should he fight him and hurt him (And make no mistake about it he could have).

Lord knows I despise Mayweather, but I think he's telling the truth. For starters, Mayweather's bodyguards were around him. There's no way they would let T.I. anywhere near him knowing that he was there to cause trouble for their boss. Also, I think Mayweather would have been in even greater shock than when Maidana made him bleed during their fight. So, seeing as Mayweather wasn't all that shocked, I think it's safe to say that T.I. is lying. Anyway, whatever. The two should have just beat the **** out of each other for my entertainment, so booo!

I believe Floyd! Plus Floyd would get into a lot of trouble with the law for fighting outside of the ring.
