Oscar De La Hoya On His Alcoholism: 'This Is a Monster'

1/25/2017 3:09 PM PST

Here's a 2014 interview with Oscar De La Hoya addressing his alcoholism head-on -- saying the daily battle was a "monster" that he was constantly trying to control. 

De La Hoya opened up to Graham Bensinger ... saying he started drinking at 8 years old and things became a problem in his early teens. 

At the time, Oscar -- who had been to rehab twice before -- said he had a grip on his drinking but admitted it was a day-to-day struggle.

Floyd Mayweather Pissed Over Lowball Bids at Bugatti Auction

1/23/2017 10:42 AM PST

Floyd Mayweather's insanely expensive Bugatti didn't sell at auction this weekend ... despite a $1.9 MILLION bid ... because the number was still much lower than Floyd was hoping to get. 

As we previously reported, Floyd put his white 2011 Veyron Grand Sport on the auction block at the Barrett-Jackson auto show in Scottsdale, AZ this weekend.

The boxer was expecting to make a profit after reportedly paying $3.5 mil for the whip ... but that's not how things went down.

0120-bugatti-barett-jackson-tmz-01We're told the reserve on the car (the lowest number he would agree to sell the car for) was $2 million ... and the highest bid was still $100,000 short of that. Aerosmith's Steven Tyler had expressed interest in the car, but clearly, things didn't work out. 

Our sources tell us Floyd was visibly upset and left the auction early. Now, Floyd has to look for another high-end car buyer ... which isn't impossible ... it's just very time-consuming.

Meantime, Floyd's pal, Justin Bieber, sold his Ferrari for a whopping $430k ... which is higher than some car experts thought it would get!

Props to our friends at Velocity’s Barrett Jackson LIVE for the video.

New IBF champ Gervonta Davis has something much sexier than boxing super stardom on his mind for the future ... telling TMZ Sports now that he's the man, he wants RIHANNA.

22-year-old Davis absolutely DESTROYED Jose Pedraza to take the junior lightweight crown this past Saturday night ... in what some say was a star-making performance.

We talked to Gervonta ... and while he says he's definitely getting more DM thirst since he won the belt, he told us he plans to use is newfound stardom to lure RiRi, claiming he's just her type.

We got Floyd leaving Pristine Jewelers in NYC (he dropped roughly $200k on gifts for family and friends) -- when he told us he has nothing against Ronda and would love to help her out.

"I'll work with her if she's willing to work with me," Floyd said.

EXCLUSIVE

WBA boxing champ Daniel Jacobs says he's sure he's gonna beat GGG in their upcoming fight and all because he's already bested an opponent way tougher than Golovkin ... cancer.

Jacobs was diagnosed with osteosarcoma -- a rare form of bone cancer -- in 2011 and missed nearly 19 months from the sport before resuming his career.

We got Jacobs in L.A. and he told us that fight was the toughest of his life ... and because of that ordeal he has absolutely ZERO fear of GGG, who's knocked out his last 23 opponents.

The two men are set to square off May 18 in MSG ... and besides his record against cancer, DJ has one more reason you should bet on him to win ... and it's a solid one.

Tupac was at the Tyson-Bruce Seldon fight Sept. 7, 1996 at the MGM Grand in Vegas, and after a first round KO by Iron Mike, he allegedly handed his ticket stub to a man and said ... "Here you go boy, enjoy this."

The ticket stub was later bought by a guy who verified it was indeed the rapper's. Now he's looking to sell one of the last items 'Pac ever touched to the highest bidder. Shortly after Tyson's fight, he and Suge Knight famously brawled with rivals in a lobby, then drove off and got shot.

Goldin Auctions owner Ken Goldin thinks the ticket will fetch at least $25,000.

EXCLUSIVE

Floyd Mayweather is shooting down Dana White's $25 MILLION offer to fight Conor McGregor ... saying simply, "You're a f**king comedian!"

Earlier Friday, White appeared on 'The Herd' on FS1 and made the official offer for the fight -- $25 mil each plus part of the Pay-Per-View profits.

Floyd was clearly INSULTED by the offer and told us to look at his watch ... a limited edition Hublot Laferrari which usually starts around $220k and can run up to around $350k. 

The message ... Dana's number is WAYYYY too low. 

Back to the drawing board. 

Soulja Boy I'll K.O. Chris! If I Can Quit Smoking Weed

1/13/2017 2:07 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Soulja Boy needs to clear the air about boxing Chris Brown -- telling us exactly why he's fighting, how the match will end ... and about his struggle to put down weed beforehand.

Soulja sounded focused and pumped about training when we got him Friday at LAX. He says there will definitely be a knockout ... no matter what Mike Tyson says.

He says last he heard -- from Floyd Mayweather -- the fight's happening in Vegas or L.A. ... but Soulja's just getting back from Hong Kong, and we're guessing he missed the update from Wack 100 that it's moving to Dubai.

Soulja also had one final message for Chris, and it's a little hard to believe.
