Boxing Star Cecilia Braekhus Kissed By Opponent ... During Face-Off

10/16/2017 10:03 AM PDT
Breaking News

Yeah -- that's a pretty effective way of promoting a fight.

Earlier today in Norway, undefeated boxing star Cecilia Braekhus was facing off with Sweden's Mikaela Lauren for their upcoming fight ... when Mikaela decided to show Cecilia some love (literally).

Hard to say if it was mind games or if Mikaela just thinks Cecilia's hot ... either way, that was a serious lip-lock.

Cecilia shoved her face in shock, but took the kiss like a champ -- laughing off the gesture and even thanking her future opponent for giving her some sugar.

Sergey Kovalev Beat The Hell Up ... By Tiny Toddler Son

10/12/2017 12:25 PM PDT

Sergey Kovalev just lost his 3rd straight fight, but it wasn't Andre Ward this time, it was his cute little toddler son, who totally laid the smack down on dear old dad with a vicious right hand.

Sergey is in Oxnard right now training for a big comeback fight with Vyacheslav Shabranskyy (we copy pasted that name) and got some work in with a new sparring partner, his son Aleksandr.

Watch the fight, the nearly 2-year-old "Little Krusher" clearly controls the action, then lands the defining blow to his pop's face, which is enough to get a decision from us.

Get the kid signed up, he's a natural.

Floyd Mayweather: I'm Not Scared of GGG!

10/10/2017 7:39 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Floyd Mayweather got into a shouting match with a heckler on the streets of NYC on Monday night -- after the fan accused Floyd of running from Gennady Golovkin

Oh, and the video ends with Floyd's bodyguard threatening to choke a dude out. 

Good stuff!!!

It all started after Floyd and his TMT squad left the Knicks game at MSG -- when a very loud fan started screaming at Floyd that he's scared of GGG. 

Floyd yelled back to explain why he's not scared ... more yelling ensued. Floyd tried to jewelry shame the heckler -- asking how many diamonds he has on his watch.

As for GGG, he previously told us he wants to fight Floyd BAD -- and guaranteed he would knock Mayweather out cold. 

Boxing Star Danny Garcia Wanna Get Groupies?? Hit Up McDonald's!

10/9/2017 12:25 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Where should boxers go to find groupies?

Any old McDonald's will do, boxing star Danny Garcia tells TMZ Sports -- 'cause ladies tryna quench their thirst ain't only at the club.

"You just walk down the street -- McDonald's ... buyin' a McGriddle! You can find 'em anywhere!!"

Danny's a 1-woman man ... but we're pretty sure not all his bros have coitus on deck after every fight. Garcia says NFL and NBA guys get waaay more groupie love.

So ... we got D.G. to drop some knowledge on where to look.

Dude's GF is smokin' hot -- so maybe he's right. Maybe.

Boxer Danny Garcia Hey, Conor ... I'll Beat You Worse Than Floyd

10/6/2017 8:16 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

If Conor McGregor really wants to continue his boxing career he might've found his huckleberry ... former welterweight champ Danny Garcia, who says he'd beat Conor's ass ... worse than Floyd did.

McGregor has publicly stated he thinks he'd win a rematch with Floyd, and hasn't ruled out a return to the boxing ring in the future (why not? He reportedly made more than $100 million last time).

We got Danny at Team Watson Boxing in L.A. (where huge fighters train), and he said he's more than willing to kick the damn hell out of Conor, and thinks he'd finish him way faster than Floyd did.

"He ain't going 10 rounds with me, I'm a seek and destroy type fighter, I'm one of the type of fighters you want to run from when you fight, it ain't going past 4."

That's an old-fashioned call out from a legit star ... your move, Conor.

Freddie Roach Teases Conor vs. GSP Super Fight ... UFC Says 'No'

10/5/2017 3:16 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Legendary boxing trainer Freddie Roach is currently working with Georges St-Pierre -- and he may have just dropped a huge bombshell about GSP's future fighting plans.

Maybe. 

Roach was leaving Craig's in L.A. when we asked what he thought of Conor McGregor's boxing skills. Spoiler -- he thinks Conor sucks. 

But that's when he dropped this gem -- "GSP's gonna kick his ass anyway."

Here's the thing ... GSP is currently training for his UFC 217 fight against Michael Bisping. If he wins, could a Conor fight be next? That's what Freddy seems to be getting at. 

FYI, GSP is fighting Bisping at 185 pounds -- but he's previously said he can cut to 155. 

Conor is the champ at 155 -- but he fought (and beat) Nate Diaz at 170. 

Let's face it -- this would be a HUGE fight for Conor and the UFC. Maybe even bigger than Conor vs. Nate III. 

So, does Roach know something we don't? Or is it just wishful thinking?

We reached out to the UFC and were told, "GSP is coming back after 4 years off. Conor is looking to defend his title. There is zero talk about GSP vs. Conor."

Mike Tyson Bizarre Personal Treasures Surface At NC Thrift Shop

10/2/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Time for Mike Tyson to listen up ... because if he wants some of the personal (and bizarre) items he USED to own back, TMZ Sports has a way for Iron Mike to recover his crap.

What kinda stuff are we talking about here?

Autographed porn covers (S/O to Heather Hunter, a legend), personal photos with huge stars like Eddie Murphy and Johnny Gill, and even legal documents from Mike's time as a not-so-great citizen.

This haul of goodies ended up in the hands of a guy named Richus Allen, who tells us he bought the stuff from a thrift shop in Fayetteville, North Carolina.

So how'd he get it?

Allen says Mike's personal barber put the stuff in a storage unit, then defaulted on the payments. The thrift store bought the unit, then Allen bought the stuff.

Richus tells us he wants Mike to know he has his old crap, just in case MT wants some of his memories -- including pics of his now deceased mother figure Camille Ewald -- back.

And although Allen says this definitely isn't a cash grab, we have a feeling he wouldn't say no to a finder's fee.

Muhammad Ali Would Be Proud of NFL Protesters ... Says Ex-Wife

9/30/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Muhammad Ali would have been in full support of NFL players taking a knee during the national anthem ... because his ex-wife tells TMZ Sports "he would've been right there with them."

Khalilah Ali -- who was married to the boxing legend from '67 to '76 -- says it brought tears to her eyes to watch all the players kneel "in unity" last weekend ... and thinks Muhammad would've been proud to see the protest he started continuing to this day.

"Muhammad would have been right there with them, rooting them on and giving total support. Because he started it. He started this."

Boxing Star Mia St. John Calls Out Cyborg For Playboy Mansion Fight!!

9/30/2017 12:25 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Former boxing champ Mia St. John is technically retired ... but says there's one fighter who could lure her back into the ring -- UFC superstar Cris Cyborg!

One catch, though -- it's gotta happen at the Playboy Mansion.

We got Mia -- a former Playboy cover girl -- the day after Hugh Hefner's passing ... and she showed Hef mad love for exposing her to the world.

But when the convo turned to her career ... MSJ told us she was officially done -- UNLESS she gets offered a match with Cyborg at Hugh's legendary crib.

Cris says she wants to box, and Mia was in the first-ever mansion fight (yeah, Hef had those) ... so, maybe?

If it doesn't go down ... St. John's got another fight -- against the system she blames for her son's death.

Floyd Mayweather I'm a Billionaire ... 'It Was Easy'

9/28/2017 6:27 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Floyd Mayweather says he's officially a member of the Tres Commas club -- despite the fact he never cashed his TWO biggest fight checks.

The boxing superstar was leaving Warwick nightclub in L.A. -- not too far from his brand new Bev Hills mansion -- when he started talking about his favorite thing in the world ... his bank account. 

"I already made up a billion dollars," Floyd declared ... "That was easy!" 

But is it true? It's definitely possible. 

Before the McGregor fight, Forbes reported Mayweather had racked up slightly more than $700 MILLION in career boxing earnings.  

And with a reported $300 to $400 mil payday for beating up Conor, it would definitely put Floyd over the top. Funny part is, Floyd says the McGregor fight check (and the Pacquiao check) haven't even been cashed yet

"We got a lot of problems," Mayweather tells TMZ Sports ... "Money ain't one of our problems."

Lil Wayne Signs Champion Boxer To Young Money Sports

9/27/2017 12:35 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Lil Wayne's got another one ... not a rap hit ... but another huge athlete for his Young Money APAA Sports & Entertainment Agency, this time signing a champion boxer to the team ... TMZ Sports has learned.

Wayne's new kid ain't some no-name prospect, its Erickson Lubin who's 18-0 and about to fight for the super welterweight championship of the world.

Lubin is fighting champion Jermell Charlo at the Barclays Center on October 14 and recently struck a pose with Young Money president Mack Maine, the guy responsible for bringing him to the team.

This is a huge move into boxing for Young Money, Lubin is a budding superstar and if he beats Charlo -- who's undefeated, too -- could be in line for some HUGE money fights.

Keep your hands up, kid.

Michael Buffer Judges Sucked, But Hookers Killed It ... for Canelo vs GGG

9/23/2017 12:05 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Canelo vs. GGG was great for literally everyone (especially hookers) ... except the judges who doo-doo'd on boxing's big night -- so says the man who introduced the fighters.

We got Michael Buffer a couple days after the fight ... and the legendary ring announcer didn't hold back on Saturday's controversial scorecards -- guaranteeing us that Adalaide Byrd (the 118-110 Canelo judge) wouldn't be ringside for the rematch.

But Buffer gave us a pretty long list of winners from fight night -- Vegas, promoters, banks, bartenders and, of course, prostitutes! 

Remember, Bishop Don "Magic" Juan has always said ... nothing brings hookers and johns together like a big fight! 

Floyd Mayweather I Still Haven't Cashed Pacquiao or McGregor Checks

9/22/2017 6:06 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Could you imagine having $600 MILLION in uncashed checks lying around the house? 

Floyd Mayweather says that's exactly the case with him ... telling TMZ Sports he still has NOT cashed his massive checks from the Manny Pacquiao and the Conor McGregor fights. 

Mayweather was leaving TAO in L.A. with his entourage Thursday night when he talked about everything from his health to his wealth. 

Fun Fact: Floyd says he wants to bring his Las Vegas strip club business out to L.A. too -- "It's time for us to get a new gentleman's club out here. Girls Collection L.A."

Oh, and to prove he's serious about his fight checks ... Floyd says he plans to post 'em on social media later today. He reportedly made around $300 mil per fight. 

Stay tuned ...
