Screw the talk, screw the hype ... it would only take ONE ROUND for Floyd Mayweather to dismantle Conor McGregor in a boxing ring -- so says Sugar Ray Leonard

The boxing legend -- who actually beat Floyd's dad back in 1978 -- was leaving Catch when he made it very clear McGregor doesn't stand a chance if they fight in a ring instead of an Octagon. 

He's still gonna buy it though. We're all gonna buy it.

EXCLUSIVE

There's a BIG difference between a "business fight" and a "true fight" ... so says Gennady Golvkin who tells TMZ Sports the Conor vs. Floyd situation is more entertainment than sport. 

Gennady is gearing up for his big showdown with Daniel Jacobs at Madison Square Garden on Saturday night ... a match GGG says is a "true fight."

Floyd Mayweather I'll Un-Retire for Conor McGregor Just Ink the Deal Already!

3/11/2017 10:11 AM PST
Breaking News

0311-floyd-mayweather-conor-mcgregor-TMZ-01Floyd Mayweather had made it loud and clear -- he's willing to step out of retirement to fight Conor McGregor ... if they can just hammer out a deal. 

Floyd made the official announcement Saturday, saying "for Conor McGregor, I'm coming out of retirement ... just to fight Conor McGregor." 

He added ... "I don't want to hear no more excuses about the money, about the UFC. Sign the paper with the UFC so you can fight me in June. Simple and plain. Let's fight in June. You're the B side, I'm the A side." 

Here's the problem ... Dana White has already said the fight isn't likely to happen because negotiations are falling apart. They seem to be worlds apart on money ... and there's simply no deal as of February

Floyd's been back and forth about being willing to fight Conor, but seems to be taking a firm position now ... he's willing if a deal can be struck. 

Your move, Dana. 

Muhammad Ali's Son Stopped Again At Airport Claims Religious Profiling

Muhammad Ali's son was stopped and questioned again at another airport ... and his lawyer says  the TSA is lying by trying to minimize the incident.

Muhammad Ali, Jr. was at Reagan National Airport Friday when he tried checking in for a flight at an airline counter.  Ali's lawyer says a computer check flagged Ali and someone who needed to ante up more info about him.  The lawyer says the agent wouldn't accept Ali's Illinois ID, and then put the boxer's son on the phone with Homeland Security.

The lawyer says the call lasted 20 minutes.  Once Ali handed over his passport to confirm his identity, the lawyer says Homeland security cleared him.

TSA says the delay was not 20 minutes -- only 11, adding Ali was never "detained."

Ali was held a month ago for several hours by immigration at a Florida airport ... he and his lawyer say it's clear it's because Ali is a Muslim.   

Oscar De La Hoya Charged In DUI Case

EXCLUSIVE

0309-Oscar-DeLaHoya-tmzOscar De La Hoya has been hit with 2 misdemeanor DUI charges stemming from his January arrest in Pasadena ... TMZ Sports has learned.

We broke the story ... the 44-year-old boxing legend was pulled over for speeding around 2 AM but during the stop, officers suspected Oscar was drunk.

We're told Oscar bombed a series of field sobriety tests and was arrested for DUI.

Now, prosecutors are moving forward with charges -- DUI and driving with a .08 or above. If convicted, he faces up to 6 months in jail and a $1,000 fine.

He'll probably cut a deal to keep him out of jail -- and instead, he'll agree to alcohol education classes, AA meetings and fines and fees.

Calls to Oscar's camp have not been returned.

update_graphic_red_bar2:19 PM PT -- A rep for the Ladywood Fire Station -- which responded to the fire -- tells TMZ that 2 individuals chucked a Molotov cocktail inside after breaking a window with a brick. We're told the van was connected to Floyd's entourage and the team handling his promotions while he's in the UK. Sources close to Floyd tell us the van was not actually owned by him. The case has been passed off to cops.update_grey_gray_bar

Floyd Mayweather had one of his entourage's vans burnt to a crisp in what appears to be an arson attack this weekend in the UK.

Floyd was speaking at an event inside the International Convention Centre in Birmingham Saturday night when 1 of his custom TMT vans was torched outside and left smoldering. 

The boxer is currently on his "Undefeated" tour, where he's speaking in front of audiences and doing meet-and-greets with fans. 

We've reached out to local authorities ... so far, no word back. 

There's a silver lining for Floyd here -- he lost just 1 van ... as opposed to 4 expensive cars like the last time this happened.
