EXCLUSIVE

0617-dominic-wade-showtimeGennady Golovkin dished out karmic justice when he KO'd Dominic Wade back in April -- 'cause Wade had beaten the hell out of a woman in the months before the fight ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Triple G annihilated Wade during their April 23rd fight -- but it's shocking Wade was even allowed in the ring considering he was facing some pretty disturbing domestic violence allegations at the time.  

According to official records, obtained by TMZ Sports, Wade was charged with assault for a Dec. 23rd incident -- in which he allegedly attacked the mother of his child ... and then punched her niece in the face. 

The niece told cops she had heard the commotion in the home and ran into the room to help her aunt when Wade socked her in the mouth -- knocking out one of her teeth. 

The case went under the radar before his big fight with GGG -- but weeks later, he pled GUILTY to one count of assault with significant bodily injury.  

He's facing up to 3 years in prison when he shows up for his sentencing hearing in August.

Breaking News

0613-deontay-wilder-alexander-povetkin-TMZ-GETTY-01Heavyweight boxing champ Deontay Wilder is suing the man he was SUPPOSED to fight back in May -- claiming Alexander Povetkin's positive doping test cost him MILLIONS ... and he wants his money. 

In a lawsuit obtained by TMZ Sports, Wilder claims he was guaranteed 70% of the $7.15 MILLION purse for the May 21st fight (math translation: $5 million). 

Problem is ... Povetkin tested positive for the banned substance meldonium (the same stuff Maria Sharapova was using) and the fight was called off 6 days before the bout. 

Wilder says he was suspicious that Povetkin was doping since he had traveled to Spain in the months before the fight ... and "[Spain is] notorious as an epicenter of doping."

Sources close to Wilder tell the the champ was PIIIIIIISSSSED in the days after the fight was cancelled -- and now we know why ... a $5 million loss would probably ruin your week too.

"As soon as he started hitting the heavy bag, his tremors went away," Roach said ... "I said we have something in common, because when I do mitts, my tremors go away."

"I think it's more of our comfort zone. We're boxers, we're both very comfortable doing that."

He continued, "I'm a little bit sad that he passed away ... I  wonder what I maybe have to look forward to sometimes."

Roach says he's hopeful ... noting they have made tremendous advancements in medicine and science.

EXCLUSIVE

Ken Shamrock says his heart aches for Kimbo Slice -- saying the guy made a tremendous impact in the world of combat sports ... but never got the respect he truly deserved.

"Even when he won a fight it seemed like he was never good enough," Shamrock says.

"When you really care about your fans and you really care about what you do then those things that come at you from a negative position ... it hurts ... especially when it comes in thousands of people with negative thoughts. It stings, it hurts."

Shamrock says he never spoke with Slice directly about it -- but says it was obvious Kimbo was affected by the negativity.  

In the end, Shamrock says Slice should be remembered as a warrior. 

Muhammad Ali 'The Greatest' Dead at 74

Breaking News

0603-launch-Muhammad-Ali-Getty-03Muhammad Ali has died in a Phoenix-area hospital where he was battling respiratory issues ... according to a family spokesman.

The legendary boxer and humanitarian was 74 years old. He had checked into the hospital on Thursday and reps said he was in fair condition, but on Friday his health worsened throughout the day.

The family says his funeral will be held in Ali's hometown of Louisville, although the spokesman didn't specify a date. NBC News first reported his death.

Ali will be remembered as one of the most recognized figures worldwide -- after winning boxing's heavyweight title 3 different times ... with the first coming in a KO of Sonny Liston in 1964.

He was as famous for his boxing matches -- the "Rumble in the Jungle," the "Thrilla in Manila" -- as quotes like, "Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee."

Ali, born Cassius Clay, changed his name and converted to Islam in 1964. He also famously refused to enter the Vietnam War in 1967 as a conscientious objector.

Although he was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease in 1984 ... Ali remained very active at international events in and out of the sporting world. His lighting of the Olympic flame at the 1996 Atlanta games is considered one of the most iconic images in Olympic history.

The champ is survived by his wife Yolanda Williams and 9 children -- 7 daughters, 2 sons -- including Laila Ali, who became an undefeated boxing champ herself.

0603_Muhammad-Ali-and-Laila-Ali_gettyWhen he retired in 1981, Ali had 56 wins, 5 losses and 37 knockouts.

He was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 1990 ... and will always hold the title of "The Greatest."

0602-shane-mosley-amir-khan-TMZ-01Shane Mosley is dashing the hell out of Amir Khan's Olympic dreams -- saying it would be DUMB AS HELL to fight at the '16 Games in Rio after the way he was brutally K.O.'d back in May. 

FYI, Khan has expressed serious interest in fighting for Pakistan at the summer games -- after the International Boxing Association finally voted to allow pros to compete for gold. 

But after watching Khan nearly get decapitated by Canelo Alvarez last month, Mosely tells TMZ Sports, the dude needs to rethink his plan. 

"I don’t think after getting knocked the f*** out Khan should be talking about representing anyone."

Damn.

As for Mosely, the boxer says he WILL be in Rio for the games, but not to fight ...

"I think there are better people than me to represent the USA. I will be in Rio for the games though. And having a lot of sex on the beach."

Good plan.
