Lil Wayne and Andre Bertobrought some good holiday vibes to a school in Haiti ... giving out tons of toys and Trukfit gear.
Berto, a Haitian-American boxing superstar dropped his gloves for a Santa suit and toys for the kids. That's not all, Wayne chipped in a bunch of clothing from his Trukfit line ... enough shirts, shorts and hats for 500 students in need.
Scholastic Corporation stepped up too ... donating 500 books to the kids, the whole thing was brought together by Karen Civil whose parents grew up in the country.
Boxing superstar Gennady Golovkin says he's FIRED UP to fight Canelo Alvarez next year -- now that they've agreed to get in the ring -- but we're told fans are gonna have to stay patient.
With news that reps for both fighters have finally struck a deal to fight for the WBC Middleweight title -- GGG tells TMZ Sports, "I'm looking forward to the super fight with Canelo for the fans next year to show who is the best."
We spoke with GGG's rep who tells us, "The fight will most likely take place 2nd half of 2016."
"Both will have fights in early 2016, and then fight each other in the second half of the year."
As for where the fight will take place -- there's been speculation it could go down at a HUGE venue like AT&T Stadium in Dallas or Madison Square Garden in NYC.
GGG's rep says the two sides are still trying to work that part out -- "Going into 2016, this will be the biggest boxing event. It could be any of the biggest arenas in the country."
He's one of the fastest rising stars in boxing -- and undefeated welterweight Sammy Vasquez says he gives a lot of credit to his military background ... telling us it helps him "tremendously" in the ring.
Vasquez -- who served 2 tours in Iraq with the National Guard -- is 20-0 as a pro fighter and has a HUGE fight coming up in January against Aron Martinez.
The 29-year-old military vet says he's dedicating the fight to all of the soldiers who were injured while serving their country -- and vows to make them proud.
"God let me do what I can do, pursue a dream," Vasquez says ... "There's a lot of guys who can't do anything anymore because they got their legs blown off and things like that. So, those are the guys that I fight for."
Boxing superstar Canelo Alvarez is in the middle of a nasty lawsuit filed by another famous boxer -- who's suing Canelo for $9 MILLION over a street fight in Mexico back in 2011 ... TMZ Sports has learned.
The man behind the lawsuit is Ulises Solis -- a former IBF light flyweight champ -- who claims Alvarez beat him up during an altercation in Guadalajara.
According to the suit, Alvarez punched Solis in the face so hard -- he knocked out a tooth and fractured Solis' jaw.
As a result, Solis claims he was stripped of his IBF championship belt because he couldn't defend his title with a broken jaw.
Solis claims he was simply outsized in the fight -- with Canelo coming in a 5'9", 160 lbs and Solis at 5'3", 108 lbs.
In his suit, Solis claims he suffered more than $4 million in damages -- plus he wants another $5 mil in punitives.
We've learned trial proceedings have begun -- jury selection started on Monday -- and the trial could wrap by the end of the month.
We reached out to Canelo's camp for comment -- so far, no word back.
File this one under: Is it too late to become a boxer?
Adrien Broner doesn't have to ask that question ... 'cause the WBA lightweight champion is showing us all the upside of getting socked in the face for a living ... you can afford $750k jewelry for your trouble.
We spoke to Joe Avianne from Avianne & Co. jewelers in NYC and he told us Broner came to him wanting a 1-of-1 for his wrist ... basically something no one will ever have again.
Joe went to work for AB ... dreaming up a yellow stoned blinged out monstrosity with over 100 karats worth of diamonds in the bracelet that ended up setting the champ back 3 quarters of a mil.
Keeping winning, AB ... no seriously, keep winning or you won't be able to buy more bracelets.
Oscar De La Hoya says his strongly worded attack on Floyd Mayweather is NOT a publicity stunt to get Floyd in the ring ... saying he's NOT planning on a rematch because he's too old.
De La Hoya appeared on "TMZ Sports" on FS1 on Tuesday -- and we asked if he's afraid of meeting Floyd in the streets after blasting the guy as boring and saying boxing is better off without him.
The Golden Boy says he WOULD be down to scrap with Floyd ... if there was a way to turn back the clock -- but says for all intents and purposes, his fighting days are over.
We also asked Oscar about his $100,000 bet with Jay Z over the Canelo Alvarez vs. Miguel Cotto fight this weekend ... and De La Hoya made it clear, he wants Hova's money bad ... for a really good cause.
Check out the "TMZ Sports" TV show on FS1 ... weekdays at 9 PM PT and Wednesdays at 9:30.
Boxer Yusaf Mack KO'd the closet last night ... celebrating his new status as an openly gay man at one of the most famous night spots in West Hollywood.
Yusaf had a "coming out party" at Rage nightclub in Weho on Sunday night ... a longtime landmark on the L.A. gay scene. It was a helluva leap for Mack, who just revealed his sexual orientation last week.
Days ago he alleged he'd been drugged and forced to participate in a gay porno movie, but a lot has changed. We got Yusaf outside Rage, and we gotta say ... he looks really happy.
Etienne made the big time when he fought Mike Tyson back in '03 ... but saw his life spiral downward after that ... and is currently serving time in Louisiana for armed robbery, kidnapping, and attempted murder of a police officer.
We spoke to Lynn O'Shea -- who handles Etienne's business affairs -- and she tells us he began painting while inside ... and that his passion for the craft may have saved his life.
"He's amazing. He took painting serious inside and after he earned trustee status he was actually able to become the warden's artist and sleep in his paint room. That kept him away from all the drama in gen pop."
O'Shea tells us that Clifford's paintings sell "very well" and his work has been displayed at several high profile spots around south Louisiana ... including one of the last places you'd expect.
"The city of New Orleans bought one that hangs in a district police department, if you can believe that."
Unfortunately, Etienne's had a rough go of it as of late ... he was transferred to a new prison after he was nearly killed in an attack in his paint room ... and O'Shea says it's taken a toll on him.
"Things slowed down after the attack. He used to make all his own canvas and stuff to paint on ... but now he's locked down. I'm hoping some friends from his past life as a boxer can help him out."
Pretty cool moment from Floyd Mayweather ... when he hooked up Leah Still with an autographed pair of boxing gloves to help her KNOCK OUT cancer!!
The backstory is interesting ... Leah's dad Devon Still says he's been advising his daughter to approach the cancer fight like Mayweather approaches his opponents in the ring.
"When she was diagnosed with cancer I told her she had to win every round (like boxers- mayweather to be exact) of chemo/treatment and she would win the fight against cancer."'
When Mayweather's camp got word -- he wanted to help ... and according to Devon, "He surprised Leah with an autographed glove for winning her fight and he threw in another glove for me to auction off at my first annual Still Strong Foundation Gala!"
