Oscar De La Hoya Trump Is Trying to Get Hillary Elected

3/2/2016 4:54 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Oscar De La Hoya says he's known Donald Trump for decades -- and says he "truly feels" his old friend's antics are simply an act in a diabolical plot to get Hillary Clinton elected. 

He's dead serious. 

Oscar joined the guys on the "TMZ Sports" TV show on FS1 -- and brought up Trump ... saying Donald inspired him to put together his upcoming superfight between Canelo Alvarez and Amir Khan because they both come from backgrounds that Trump has targeted in his campaign. 

Amir is Muslim and Canelo is Mexican ... and Oscar says, "Let me put them in there and create this big mega event and show Trump that we belong in this country."

They fight in Vegas on May 7th. 

De La Hoya says MUCH MUCH MORE -- you have to watch the entire interview Wednesday night on "TMZ Sports" on FS1.

EXCLUSIVE

Floyd Mayweather stopped a media tour dead in its tracks to shout-out a 15-year-old prodigy who's taking the boxing world by storm ... and Floyd says he could be the next Money Team fighter!

Mayweather was at the W Hotel in D.C. when he noticed Lorenzo "Truck" Simpson in the crowd ... and stopped an interview to call out the kid. 

"I see it, that kid can fight!" 

Turns out, his instincts were right ... Truck reportedly has a 145-2 record as an amateur and has SIX National Silver Gloves titles under his belt

In the clip, Floyd said he wants to sign Truck "when he gets a little older" -- explaining, "Everything takes time. We ain't worry about that. We'll get there." 

Afterward, Mayweather issued a statement to TMZ Sports saying, "[Truck] is a great amateur fighter. His is only 15 right now but I look forward to working with him when he turns 18."

Donald Trump Challenged by Bob Arum I'll Shut His Mouth in the Ring

2/26/2016 1:34 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0226-arum-trump-tmz-01Step aside Marco Rubio, legendary boxing promoter Bob Arum says Donald Trump is a "disgrace" and wants to take him down in a boxing match.

Arum thinks the other Republican candidates are going soft on Trump. At a boxing event Friday he vowed, "I'll handle him, not like these guys who don't hit him and treat him with kid gloves." 

Watch the clip ... he's talking a big game.

Not sure how this one would play out. Bob's fired up, but he is 84 compared to Trump's spry 69. Arum's tight with Manny Pacquiao, but then again Trump and Mike Tyson are BFFs.

And on the Pacquiao front ... sounds like he and Arum have patched things up, since the promoter blasted the boxer for his comments about gay marriage.

Manny Pacquiao Sued Waiter Wants His Cut For Setting Up Mayweather Fight

2/24/2016 6:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0224_gabriel-salvador_manny_tmz_gettyMayweather-Pacquiao would never have happened if a Hollywood waiter didn't get involved ... so claims the waiter who's suing to get a chunk of the financial windfall from the fight of the century.

Gabriel Salvador says he was a waiter at West Hollywood hot spot Craig's when regular customer and CBS honcho Les Moonves came in for a meal. Salvador, an avid boxing fan, says he told Moonves he could set up a meeting with Manny Pacquiao's trainer, Freddie Roach -- which, he thought, would be the first domino in making the fight happen.

According to docs obtained by TMZ Sports ... Salvador eventually got all 3 men together at Scarpetta in Bev Hills in May 2014. For setting up the sit down, Salvador says he told all parties he wanted a "customary finder's fee" of 2% of gross proceeds earned by Pacquiao, Roach and CBS/Showtime from the fight.

In the suit, he says Moonves and Roach agreed to the terms and Roach even said, "You will never have to work another day as a waiter in your life."

Salvador admits he got a ticket to the fight, one night at a Vegas hotel and a $10,000 check to cover expenses.

After the fight, he says Moonves told him CBS didn't make any money on the fight, and he'd have to collect his fee from Pacquiao and Roach. But Salvador says Keith Davidson, an attorney for Manny and Freddie, tried to strong arm him into accepting $50,000 -- and if he didn't he would lose his job and never land any acting gigs.

Yes, like most waiters in this town ... he's also an aspiring actor.

Salvador, who's still waiting tables, is suing Manny, Freddie, Keith Davidson and CBS for his finder's fee ... which he estimates at $8.6 million.

Sources connected with CBS tell TMZ ... Salvador had nothing to do with setting up the fight and this is him trying to score a payday after the fact.

We reached out to Pacquiao's attorney, Daniel Petrocelli, who told us, "Salvador has no case against Manny. Manny has never heard of the guy."
