Floyd Mayweather Drops An INSANE $50k On Car ... Repairs

7/31/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0729-floyd-mayweather-tmz-01There's only one thing crazier than spending $3.5 million on a Bugatti Gran Sport Vitesse ... spending $50k just to get the damn thing serviced ... but that's exactly what Floyd Mayweather just did.

We spoke to Obi Okeke from DoctorBugatti.com who tells us he just serviced Floyd's Bugatti ... and it came out to a little bit more than your annual trip to Pep Boys.

Here's the breakdown ... 4 2015 Bugatti tires $33k ... basic service (oil & fluid changes) $23k ... then to top it off a $3k detailing service where the damn Armor All must be made out of 24k gold.

Final price tag was well over $50k.

Wanna feel even LESS normal? Obi says he's had to start AN ENTIRELY SEPARATE COMPANY to service Floyd's cars because he has to move them around for service so often. 

Just ... wow.

Former Champ Leon Spinks 'Muhammad Ali is Still Ugly ... But I Love Him'

7/31/2016 12:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It's been 38 years since Leon Spinks upset Muhammad Ali for the heavyweight title ... but that didn't stop the former champ from taking one last jab at his old opponent.

Neon Leon, and his brother Michael, attended the Pat Cairo cancer outing in Lido Beach, NY on Tuesday when Leon was asked if he wanted to lay a hit on a cardboard cutout of the GOAT.

"I'm gonna give him a little rest today," he joked before adding, "he's still ugly, too."

Leon went on about his relationship with Ali, saying, "he always talked s***, but we loved him anyway."

Proceeds from the event -- which included a tribute to Ali -- were donated to a local hospital for the terminally ill and for cancer research efforts.

Boxer Paulie Malignaggi UFC Getting It Right On Doping BOXING Needs A Clean Up

7/29/2016 5:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

The UFC is cracking down on PED usage in a way boxing DESPERATELY needs ... that's according to former boxing World Champ Paulie Malignaggi ... who says it's HIS sport that needs a scrubbing.

We got Paulie -- the former junior welterweight and welterweight champ of the world -- in NY training for his big Showtime PPV fight against Gabriel Bracero on Saturday and asked him about recent drug scandals in combat sports.

A fair share of those have gone down in the UFC ... where high-profile guys, like Brock Lesnar and Jon Jones, have been popped just recently for doping.

Paulie's been a vocal critic of PED use in boxing for a long time ... but given recent history it's still interesting to hear him say that it's HIS sport ... and not the UFC ... that has the real problem.

Check it out.

Gennady Golovkin Last Opponent Beat Up Woman ... Before Fighting GGG

EXCLUSIVE

0617-dominic-wade-showtimeGennady Golovkin dished out karmic justice when he KO'd Dominic Wade back in April -- 'cause Wade had beaten the hell out of a woman in the months before the fight ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Triple G annihilated Wade during their April 23rd fight -- but it's shocking Wade was even allowed in the ring considering he was facing some pretty disturbing domestic violence allegations at the time.  

According to official records, obtained by TMZ Sports, Wade was charged with assault for a Dec. 23rd incident -- in which he allegedly attacked the mother of his child ... and then punched her niece in the face. 

The niece told cops she had heard the commotion in the home and ran into the room to help her aunt when Wade socked her in the mouth -- knocking out one of her teeth. 

The case went under the radar before his big fight with GGG -- but weeks later, he pled GUILTY to one count of assault with significant bodily injury.  

He's facing up to 3 years in prison when he shows up for his sentencing hearing in August.
