EXCLUSIVE

Jerry Jones is in the running to host a possible Gennady Golovkin vs. Canelo Alvarez fight at AT&T Stadium in Dallas ... Triple G's promoter tells TMZ Sports. 

There are tentative plans for the two boxing superstars to fight in September (if contracts can be worked out) ... and GGG's promoter, Tom Loeffler, says one of the possible venues is Jerry's World.

"Jerry Jones has watched GGG's last few fights and he expressed a big interest in having the fight in Dallas at his stadium," Loeffler tells us. 

"GGG will fight anywhere, but he's aware of Jerry Jones and the atmosphere in his stadium. Whenever Jerry Jones gets involved, he takes promotion to a new level."

"You hear 70,000 people screaming ... the huge video board... it's an amazing venue. And GGG understands the popularity of the Cowboys, the influence they have in the U.S. and around the world."

"I'd love to see that happen."

Loeffler says there are two other venues in the running -- the MGM Grand in Vegas and Madison Square Garden in NYC. 

If the two fighters do manage to hammer out a contract, we're told the fight will go down on Sept. 17th. But first, GGG has to emerge victorious in his upcoming fight with Dominic Wade on April 23rd at the Forum in L.A. 

Stay tuned ...

Adrien Broner To Stripper Don't Forget The Razor

EXCLUSIVE

"You need to shave" -- Adrien Broner to stripper. 

Some people would call it rude ... others might say he's considerate ... either way, the boxer was dishing out grooming advice to strippers at the booty club the other night and TMZ Sports has the footage. 

Broner and his crew hit up Blue Flame in Atlanta where he threw out $10,000 in cash -- but everything came to a grinding halt when he noticed one of the ladies had a flashback to the '80s below the belt. 

So, why is Broner so anti-fuzz? Might have something to do with a story he told back in 2013

Smooth move.

Manny's promoter Bob Arum has been saying for months that Pacquiao will run in the 2022 election ... after he serves in the senate. 

Hail to the future Chief.

Floyd Mayweather Conor McGregor Gets Away With Trash Talk Because He's White

1/4/2016 3:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0103_floyd_mayweather_tmzFloyd Mayweather says UFC champ Conor McGregor can be as brash and arrogant as he wants without catching any heat ... because of the color of his skin.

Mayweather did an interview with the guys over at FightHype.com last week, and when the subject of the flamboyant McGregor came up ... Mayweather went off.

"He talks a lot trash and people praise him for it, but when I did it, they say I'm cocky and arrogant. So biased."

He goes on to say ... "I ain't racist at all, but I'm telling you racism still exists."

Floyd then brings Ronda Rousey and Laila Ali into it ... questioning why Laila didn't get the endorsement and movie love Ronda does ... even though he feels Ali accomplished more.

"Laila Ali did the same thing in better fashion ... But you never heard them saying that she was the baddest woman to ever fight on the planet."

EXCLUSIVE

You've seen him crush the mitts ... but now 7-year-old boxing phenom Nijee "The Future" is obliterating real life sparring partners -- and they're all WAY OLDER THAN HIM. 

After bursting onto the scene with a YouTube video that racked up more than 1 MILLION views, Nijee is now training with real opponents ... but his dad says he'll only put him in the ring with older kids -- for their own safety. 

Check out this recent video (above) and you'll see why -- Nijee delivers a series of devastating body shots on a kid two years older than him ... putting an end to the session. 

We're told the other kid is no chump -- he's a respected 9-year-old fighter who's "very experienced" and has been training for a while.

Not to worry parents ... the two tykes hugged and shook hands after the fight. 

Question is ... when will Nijee fight for real?? We're told USA Boxing requires fighters to be at least 8 years old to compete in a sanctioned bout. So, soon. 

In the meantime, check out Nijee working below ... and hide your kids.
