Two hot, young chicks strapped on boxing gloves ... in bikinis ... and went at it INSIDE a Miami nightclub to celebrate Andre Berto's 31st bday ... and TMZ Sports has the footage.
The 2-time welterweight champ turnt all way up Mokia Lounge in Miami Beach recently -- alongside big stars like MLB pitcher Aroldis Chapman and fellow boxer Adrien Broner.
The scene was crazy ... huge bottle of champagne, scantily clad women, fancy cake -- and Berto tells TMZ Sports the whole thing was "epic!"
"We partied all night! That s**t was nuts!"
'Down Home With The Neelys'
We Hated Each Other
The Entire Show
10/1/2014 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The cooking couple that starred in "Down Home With The Neelys" hated each other FOR YEARS ... enduring 11 seasons of mutual contempt before calling it quits.
Sources close to both Pat and Gina Neely tell TMZ ... the marriage was doomed even before the show fired up in 2009 ... and the pressures of TV made things a lot worse.
We're told the Neelys had no idea the show would endure but they rode the fame train when it became a hit ... with each accusing the other of having an unquenchable thirst for the spotlight.
Now that they've thrown in the towel ... he's splintered off by himself and believes Gina will fail without him. The reason ... his family owns the famous recipes and he's the master chef. As for her ... she thinks she can trump him because she's a bigger TV personality.
They will still be tied at the hip in NYC ... where they co-own Neely's Barbecue Parlor. They have no plans to sell it.
Gina filed the divorce papers earlier this month.
My Ex-Friend Is an Ungrateful Bastard ...
Who Ruined My Hummer!
9/30/2014 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Jermaine Dupri lavished his friend with a free place to live, a free car, free studio time and several other gifts ... and the guy repaid him by trashing his hummer and then having the audacity to sue him.
Dupri says Taddrick Mingo is a leach who did nothing but take, take take:
-- free recording studio time
-- 4 years free rent in a 2 bedroom condo
-- use of Dupri's Hummer
-- free computer
-- referrals so Mingo could get studio work
Jermaine says Mingo then turned around and sued him ... claiming he worked as Dupri's assistant but never got paid.
So now Dupri has fired back with his own lawsuit, claiming Mingo was NEVER his assistant. And Jermaine wants money for the financial beating he took when he sold the whip at a loss.
As for why Dupri showered Mingo with gifts over a period of years ... he never says.
Chris Brown's Shoving 'Victim'
Face-Grabbing Fan Says
I Was Just Showing Drunk Love!
9/30/2014 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The woman who grabbed Chris Brown in a nightclub and got checked by the singer says she was just trying to show him some love ... even though she looks pretty damn ominous in the video.
The woman -- Mandee -- admits to us ... she was wasted after Chris' performance at the Houston club. She claims 5 drinks and some shots, which definitely qualifies as wasted.
She also admits it's understandable that Chris -- who was turned the other way when she grabbed him -- was simply reacting to her unwanted face grab when he pushed her ... but feels he went too far.
Mandee says she's considering legal action, telling us, "I wasn’t trying to hurt him, I was just a drunk fan."
Good luck with that.
Blocks Her Attempted Kiss [Update: New Video]
9/29/2014 9:31 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Chris Brown got physical with a woman who jumped in front of him during a nightclub appearance in Houston -- and even though she initiated the contact ... it was a questionable reaction from Chris.
Chris performed at Limelight Houston over the weekend, and while he and Karreuche Tran were walking through the crowd ... a woman stepped in front of him and reached out ... apparently trying to kiss him. CB gave her a pretty hard shove with his right forearm to move her out of the way.
It doesn't look like the fan was hurt. Obviously, not a smart move for someone with Chris' track record to mix it up with fans -- especially women -- even when they start it.
Suggestion, Chris: let security handle it.
'Kitchen Nightmares' Stars
We Were Just Defending Ourselves
9/29/2014 10:22 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The "Kitchen Nightmares" star who appeared to threaten a customer with a knife says the patron was drunk and threatening -- inciting Samy Bouzaglo by calling him a "piece of s**t."
The video we posted -- showing Samy wielding a weapon at the guy -- tells only part of the story ... so says Amy Bouzaglo.
Amy tells us the customer was falling down drunk inside their Scottsdale restaurant and became belligerent when Samy asked him to leave.
Amy says the man got in Samy's face and began cussing him out, saying, "you're a f***ing piece of s**t, I saw you on that show."
She says Samy smelled an attack coming, so he grabbed what was handy to defend the 2 of them -- and she insists the weapon was a pen, NOT a knife.
Cops tell us ... witnesses said it was a knife ... and it sure looks like one from the video.
Before Samy walked outside, we're told he waived the weapon around and called the customer a "c**t."
Check out the 911 for the full play-by-play from another customer.

12:45 PM PT -- A rep for the VIP Room tells TMZ that Chris Brown was "completely oblivious" to the incident and it occurred roughly 50 feet away from Brown and his group. The rep says the entire ordeal was completely unrelated to Brown.
A bottle-throwing brawl erupted at a club where Chris Brown was performing early Thursday morning, and police want to know if he was involved ... TMZ has learned.
According to our sources, it all went down at the VIP Room in the Meatpacking District where Chris was performing for a New York Fashion Week after-party.
Police arrived at the club at around 3:20 AM, after reports of a bottle-throwing melee, but no arrests were made. We're told one victim suffered an eye injury as a result of the bottle-tossing.
Law enforcement sources tell us they are not sure if Chris was directly involved ... but a witness tells us he was in the club, in a V.I.P. section, when the brawl broke out.
Brown tweeted about the fight saying, "There was no brawl involving me or anyone from my camp last night at VIP room. The devil is in full effect at all times. God is the way."
Back in June 2012, Brown was directly involved in a similar brawl with Drake and his crew at W.i.P. Nightclub in NYC.

On Monday, Tyra went to police to file charges against the venue ... only to discover there was a warrant out for HIS arrest. He says he turned himself in, posted bond, and was released.
