Mikey Garcia Floyd Lost A Step ... I Could Take Him

3/10/2018 12:25 AM PST

Boxing champion Mikey Garcia says he 100% believes he could beat Floyd Mayweather if they fought today ... because at 41, Garcia thinks father time has caught up with TBE.

Mikey sat down with TMZ Sports during training for Saturday's fight against Sergey Lipinets (tonight on Showtime) and when we asked who his dream fight would be against, he basically called Mayweather out.

"Now it's a different time now, 'cause he's older. I've seen his age start to get to him just a little bit."

Want more boxer-on-boxer shade? Mickey says he actually invited Floyd to spar with him once, and according to Garcia, Money wasn't having any of it.

"He was here. He was watching me spar and I asked him to get in the ring and he said he wasn't ready."


UFC Champ Tyron Woodley I'm Training Mayweather ... For MMA Fight!

3/9/2018 8:00 AM PST

Floyd Mayweather will start his MMA training with a bona fide UFC champ -- with Tyron Woodley saying he's spoken with TBE and has agreed to get him ready for his debut in the ocatgon. 

"Floyd Mayweather is interested in taking an MMA bout, maybe a few of 'em," Woodley said on "The Hollywood Beatdown."

"So, who better than The Chosen One to teach him the ropes on how we get off the ropes and get in the cage!" 

Tyron and Floyd have been friendly for a while -- and when the two connected in L.A. during NBA All-Star weekend, Tyron says they decided to work together to get Floyd MMA-ready. 

By the way, Tyron says Floyd can ABSOLUTELY WIN -- even if his opponent is Conor McGregor -- and he's got a real game plan to help Mayweather get that W. 

There's more ... Tyron also weighs in on Canelo Alvarez's PED excuse (Mexican cow meat) and claps back at rapper Tekashi69

Arianny Celeste Floyd Could Take Conor ... He's Hotter, Too!

3/8/2018 7:17 AM PST

Arianny Celeste LOVES Floyd Mayweather -- and not just for his ass-kickin' abilities!

We got the UFC's baddest Octagon girl up in the Bev Hills, and hit her with some questions on the UFC rematch that's got everyone talking -- Floyd vs. Conor 2.

Going off her answers ... it's safe to say Arianny's on The Money Team!!

-- Would you wanna see Floyd in the UFC? "I'd love to see that happen."

-- Could Floyd beat Conor? "I'd give him a chance, yeah." 

-- And the big one ... Who's hotter? "I'd have to go with Floyd ... Floyd's swag is on another level."

Celeste even let it slip that she'd be rooting for TBE -- even though he's the outsider.

If this won't motivate Floyd to step inside the Octagon ... we don't know what will. 

Andre Berto Canelo's Meat Excuse Smells Fishy

3/7/2018 8:15 AM PST

Here's another episode of "Reading Between the Lines," starring Andre Berto ... who's basically calling BS on Canelo Alvarez for blaming his failed steroids test on contaminated cow meat.

Look, Berto gets it -- beef from Mexico has a history of making athletes piss hot. The boxing star tells TMZ Sports he was even warned about the juicy cows south of the border before competing in the '04 Olympics. 

That said, there's 1 reason Berto ain't buying it -- "[Canelo's] been living in Mexico all his life. He's been tested plenty of times and this has never happened."

So, does that make Canelo a cheater? We asked ...

Exclusive Details

A woman suspected of jacking a Louis Vuitton bag filled with cash and jewelry from pro boxer Jermall Charlo has been arrested for grand larceny and criminal possession of stolen property ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Charlo was partying at Jay-Z's 40/40 Club in Manhattan early Sunday morning when he got into a fight with another group of people ... and left his bag unattended. 

When he returned to gather the bag -- it was gone. 

Sources tell us the bag contained a $15,000 diamond bracelet. a $75,000 championship ring, a $10,000 Cartier ring and more. 

We're also told there was around $40,000 in cash as well. 

Law enforcement sources tell us ... a 40-year-old Connecticut woman, Sarah Morin, turned herself in to police Tuesday morning after they asked the public for help identifying her. 

We're told cops have recovered all of the jewelry -- but none of the cash.

Canelo Alvarez Tests Positive For Banned Substance Blames Mexican Cows

3/5/2018 1:13 PM PST
Breaking News

Canelo Alvarez has admitted he tested positive for a performance enhancing drug -- but he's blaming the dirty test on contaminated cow meat.

The boxer was tested in advance of his upcoming May 5 rematch against Gennady Golovkin -- and says results show he had trace levels of Clenbuterol.

FYI, Clenbuterol is a banned substance often used by athletes to cut body fat while retaining muscle mass. It's banned by every major doping agency.

But Canelo says he's NOT a cheater -- just an eater.

He believes the traces of Clenbuterol are "consistent with meat contamination that has impacted dozens of athletes in Mexico over the last years."

Canelo says he will immediately move his training camp from Mexico to the United States and will submit to any number and variety of additional tests that the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association deems necessary ahead of the fight. 

"I am an athlete who respects the sport and this surprises me and bothers me because it had never happened to me," Canelo says.

"I will submit to all the tests that require me to clarify this embarrassing situation and I trust that at the end the truth will prevail."

Canelo's team notes he has tested clean dozens of times over the course of his previous 12 fights.

Oscar De La Hoya I Changed My Mind ... Floyd Wouldn't Get Wrecked in UFC

3/5/2018 12:45 AM PST

Just a month ago, Oscar De La Hoya told us Floyd Mayweather would get strangled unconscious in 10 SECONDS in a UFC fight.

But now, Oscar's pullin' a 180 -- telling us he truly believes Floyd "can do well" if he steps inside the Octagon.

Don't get it twisted -- Oscar hasn't forgotten about the Floyd-Conor McGregor "circus" pulling attention off the first Canelo vs. GGG fight ... but it seems like he's turned a new leaf with Canelo-GGG 2 taking center stage on May 5.

"I wish him all the best," De La Hoya told TMZ Sports. "If a boxer, and one of my colleagues, is gonna go inside the cage, I obviously have to go and support Floyd." 

Just as long as it's after May -- right, Oscar? 

Floyd Mayweather Move Over, Mike Tyson ... I'm Making My Own Video Game, Too!

3/4/2018 12:50 AM PST

Epic news, gamers -- the best thing since "Mike Tyson's Punch-Out" is on the way ... 'cause Floyd Mayweather says he's following in Tyson's footsteps and creating HIS OWN video game!!

At his 41st birthday bash, Floyd told TMZ Sports he's already "working on" bringing TBE to video game consoles around the world ... and -- like all things Floyd -- he's gonna have "ownership" in it to make sure it comes out right. 

FYI, the gaming community's been starved for a legit boxing game for years -- so this is a huge deal.

It's been rumored EA might be dropping a new "Fight Night" ... but Floyd told us he ain't gonna be in it if they do -- "Before I do anything, I have to have some ownership."

Bonus: In case you missed the Punch-Out craze, here's a tribute ft. Mayweather himself ...

UFC's Cris Cyborg I Know I Could Make Floyd Tap Out ... in an MMA Fight

2/28/2018 9:12 AM PST

The baddest woman on the planet ain't afraid of taking on Floyd Mayweather inside an MMA cage ... and she's laying out exactly how she'd smash him.

We spoke with UFC champ Cris Cyborg ahead of her 2nd title defense this weekend at UFC 222 ... and had to ask how she thinks she'd fare against Floyd, who's talked to Dana White about potentially taking a fight for the UFC.

Cyborg didn't back down -- telling TMZ Sports all the tools she'd have to bust out to put Mayweather to sleep.

Of course, that's a fantasy matchup we're never gonna see (well, maybe in Japan) ... so if ya wanna catch Cyborg, you're gonna have to tune in this Saturday when she scraps with Yana Kunitskaya.

Floyd Mayweather I Own That New Jet ... It's Not a Charter!

2/28/2018 6:18 AM PST
Exclusive Details

Floyd Mayweather tells TMZ Sports ... that brand new jet he posted on social belongs to HIM -- explaining, "I'm not posting a private jet if I'm chartering."

Floyd gifted himself the new plane for his 41st birthday -- by our count, it's the THIRD private jet Floyd has purchased for himself in the past couple of years. 

We spoke with Mayweather about his aircraft fleet -- here's what he told us:

"I'm not posting a private jet if I'm chartering. If I'm chartering a jet, I'm not posting it. We own jets."

The new jet appears to sit at least 14 people comfortably -- plus the flight crew. 

No word on how much Floyd spent on the plane -- but we're guessing it didn't come cheap. 

Dame Dash's Boxing Coach Jay-Z Fought Like Pee-Wee Herman 'He Got Waxed'

2/27/2018 11:49 AM PST

In this edition of "They Said It, We Didn't," Damon Dash's boxing coach is giving his unfiltered opinion on Jay-Z in the ring ... and according to him, Hov fought "like Pee-wee Herman."

Dash appeared on "Van Lathan's Red Pill Podcast" and the conversation turned to an underground boxing club in NYC where Dame himself, Q-Tip, Heavy D and Jay-Z would rumble with each other in the ring.

Dame said Q-Tip was the beast of the bunch. Heavy D was dope, too. But when asked if Jay could fight, Dash called up the boxing trainer who ran the gym and let him do the talking ... and talk he did.

"At first he couldn't. He was like Pee-wee Herman. At first he couldn't bust a grape. He couldn't bust a grape, a girl would've beat him up. First time I put him in the ring he got waxed."

To be fair, Dame's trainer went on to say Jay eventually got revenge on the guy who waxed him -- meaning at this point he could probably definitively bust a grape with a punch.

And to be more fair ... Jay doesn't need to fight anybody. He's got people for that (#boss). 

Shout out to Paul Reubens.

Canelo Alvarez I'd Never Consider MMA Like Floyd ... 'I Respect Boxing'

2/27/2018 11:26 AM PST

Canelo Alvarez says he wouldn't be caught dead in an MMA cage 'cause he's got too much love and respect for boxing ... unlike Floyd Mayweather.

With all the buzz about Floyd possibly taking a UFC fight, we had to ask Canelo if he'd consider crossing over, too. 

Canelo shut that down quick -- and shaded his former rival in the process. 

"I respect boxing. Boxing's my sport. That's what I love. The other sport, that's something we'll never know," he told TMZ Sports.

As for Floyd -- "With him you never know ... but you know what? Whatever he does doesn't interest me."

Of course, Canelo's focus is on his May 5 rematch vs. GGG ... and both guys let us know why this one's a way bigger deal than their first matchup. 

Oscar De La Hoya 'Dares' Trump To Come to Canelo Fight

2/27/2018 6:03 AM PST

Oscar De La Hoya has a challenge for President Trump -- he's "daring" POTUS to come to the Canelo Alvarez vs. GGG fight on May 5 ... to prove he doesn't really hate Mexican people. 

"I always have binoculars ready for Donald Trump because I'm not gonna sit him ringside," Oscar tells TMZ Sports ... "I'm gonna sit him way up there in the stands with all the Mexicans and all the fight fans from Kazakhstan!"

"I dare him to come! It'll be great!"

Oscar says he knows Trump is a fight fan -- but tells us he's probably rooting for Gennady Golovkin because "I don't think Trump is a Mexican supporter. He's more of a European supporter."

Oscar says Trump has a standing invitation to all of his Golden Boy Promotions events -- and says if Trump actually accepts the invite to the Cinco De Mayo event, "We'll have a beer together!"
