Floyd Mayweather Hey, Conor McGregor ... I'm In L.A. Now, Too!

2/23/2017 6:10 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Floyd Mayweather wants everyone to know he's here in L.A. -- which is interesting ... since Conor McGregor is, too. 

The boxing legend hit up Catch in West Hollywood Wednesday night -- the hottest restaurant in town where Floyd KNOWS the paparazzi would go crazy for him. He was right ... it was madness.

What's interesting is Conor is also in town -- we saw him in Bev Hills the other day and he's been posting photos all over town ever since.

Last time they were in the same city (Vegas), Conor declared it his own and mocked Floyd for refusing to sit down with him.

Will things change in L.A.? Stay tuned ...

Exclusive Details

Openly gay boxer Yusaf Mack unleashed a barber shop beatdown -- attacking a man he claims has been harassing him online over his sexual orientation.

TMZ Sports confirmed paramedics were called to the L A Clippers shop in Philadelphia Saturday evening ... after Mack wailed on the man in front of customers and employees.

Witnesses tell us Mack attacked the dude while the victim's head was in a sink in the middle of a wash. 

Mack tells us he got sick and tired of the online harassment and decided to confront the guy face-to-face. Mack is unapologetic and says the guy got what he deserved.

We also reached out to the victim who didn't want to talk ... but has since issued several homophobic statements on his Facebook page, including:

"I rather have a video of some beating me up then a video of someone seeing me take a d*** up my a** any day."

The man says he will retaliate against Mack ... "Me and him gonna fight again."

Mack says he's not scared.

0215-mayweather-mcgregor-tmz-01Floyd Mayweather says he's not the reason for the hold-up on a superfight with Conor McGregor -- and is pointing the finger at the UFC.

"Listen, Conor McGregor, if you really want to get this fight done ... take care of your business with the UFC and then have your people get in touch with my people," Mayweather wrote.

For the record, Dana White has already offered terms -- $25 mil per fight plus a Pay-Per-View split. Floyd laughed it off and never countered.
