Adrien Broner Won't Accept Draw Against Vargas ... Slams Tekashi69, Too

4/22/2018 10:33 AM PDT

Adrien Broner wouldn't let the judges in his boxing match against Jessie Vargas declare a draw without giving them a piece of his mind ... and not without bashing Tekashi69 either.

Adrien's fight against Vargars Saturday night was announced as a tie after 12 rounds of going at it -- which Adrien seemed disappointed with at first ... and then downright defiant.

The former world champ tried grabbing from announcer Jim Gray to give his two cents on the decision -- Gray wasn't having any of that, though. Adrien did speak his peace, though ... telling Vargas that he clearly beat his ass ... and that his 6ix9ine-looking face proved it.

As we've reported ... Broner and Tekashi have been trading barbs in the week leading up to his fight against Vargas. Broner even threw down a $300k check to counter Tekashi's hypothetical bet that he'd lose this weekend. 

Considering how things turned out  in the end ... we're guessing he's glad he didn't actually go all in on himself.

Rapper Belly Wailed On by Coachella Guards ... Crazy Vid During The Weeknd's Set!!

4/21/2018 11:09 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Belly was the recipient of several flying fists from security guards during The Weeknd's performance at Coachella ... even though the rapper performed at the fest earlier in the night.

Belly -- who actually has a hit song with The Weeknd -- was in a line of people walking from the sound booth to the VIP area near the main stage while The Weeknd was singing "The Hills" ... according to witnesses.

For whatever reason, about 10 men who appear to be Coachella security staff start PUMMELING Belly ... and don't let up for several seconds. The video's wild.

Belly isn't letting it get him down, though. He just tweeted, "No negative bulls**t can steal my joy" and added earlier ... "I'm great y'all. I love you." He also got a shot in at the guards who went after him, saying ... "20 of you p***ies couldn't take me off my feet."

We're told police were not involved in the incident -- by the time they showed up everyone had dispersed and no report was taken.

We reached out to Belly and Coachella organizers about the fracas ... so far no word back.

EXCLUSIVE

Ex-NBA star Glen "Big Baby" Davis has been officially named a suspect in an assault with a deadly weapon case that left a man seriously injured ... TMZ Sports has learned.

Davis was previously a "person of interest" in the attack but now we're told investigators have spoken with several witnesses who identified Davis as the aggressor. 

We're told cops will present the case to the District Attorney in the hopes of getting felony charges filed against Davis. 

We've reached out to Davis multiple times for comment -- so far, no word back.

EXCLUSIVE

Tekashi69 needs to be careful ... because if his feud with Adrien Broner turns into a REAL fight, Broner would knock his ass out in ONE PUNCH -- so says Tyron Woodley

Tyron was trying REALLY hard to warn Tekashi on "The Hollywood Beatdown" that his hands aren't on the same PLANET as Broner when it comes to fighting ... and the proof is in that weak ass LAX brawl earlier this year. 

In fact, Tyron says Broner needs to ignore 6ix9ine and focus on his REAL business -- beating Jessie Vargas at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Saturday night (live on Showtime). 

There's more ... Tyron also reacts to a videotaped message from Daniel Cormier about his fighting future. 

Plus, Woodley rips Danielle Bregoli, Woah Vicky and Lil Tay for that stupid YouTube star brawl in L.A.

Boxing Champ Jermell Charlo Denied Gym Entry ... Claims Racism

4/20/2018 7:23 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Boxing champ Jermell Charlo claims he and his crew were denied entry to a fancy NYC gym Thursday night because he's black ... and he captured the standoff with the front desk staffers on video. 

Charlo (the light middleweight champion of the world) and 5 people hit up Life Time Athletic gym in Manhattan to see his brother Jermall Charlo (who's fighting at Barclays Center in Brooklyn this weekend).

Problem is ... Charlo claims he was stopped at the front desk because staffers claimed he "smelled like weed."

Charlo insists neither he nor anyone in his crew had smoked and the allegation was just a bogus excuse to keep a group of black guys out of the gym. 

During the exchange, Charlo continued to challenge the front desk staff about why they're turning him away -- and at one point, a staffer tells the group she's calling 911. 

Charlo eventually left -- but shot video of police cars in the parking lot. Sources tells us police were called and did respond to the gym, but no report was taken.  

We called Life Time Athletic for their side of the story -- but they refused to comment and then hung up the phone on us.

“Oh yeah ... we’re going to be getting into some trouble. We’re ragin'! Ragin'!” Sterling told TMZ Sports ahead of his UFC Fight Night 128 bout with undefeated Brett Johns

Instead, he took an L -- but Aljo says they'll party on after he beats Johns in their own backyard (they're Jersey bros).

UFC's Dustin Poirier I'm Gonna Take Khabib's Belt ... Once My Face Is Fixed

4/18/2018 10:32 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Forget Conor McGregor ... UFC star Dustin Poirier says he should be the first guy to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov for his strap -- and he's making a damn good case.

"I'm locked on Khabib," Poirier told TMZ Sports. "It's time. I've earned it. No more denying me."

He ain't lyin'. Dustin put on a Fight of the Year contender this past weekend on FOX, taking out Justin Gaethje with a vicious 4-round TKO ... and with Conor and Tony Ferguson shelved, that could make him first up.

Of course, "The Diamond" took some SERIOUS damage himself -- dude's getting his hands, knee AND "boomerang shape" nose checked out by UFC doctors -- so he's gonna need some R&R. 

But once his face ain't broken, he wants Khabib to know he's comin'.

"Shine that belt up nice, hang on to it tight, 'cause it's gonna come home with me."

Dustin also updated us on his fight gear auction for the Gaethje fight -- so if you dug the scrap, check it out!

EXCLUSIVE

You scared homie? 

Here's Nate Diaz getting his party on at Coachella over the weekend -- where he took a few seconds to throw some shade at Conor McGregor

"Scared for his life," Diaz told us while shadow boxing. 

We also asked about getting the money side of the trilogy -- "Getting paid regardless!" 

Dana White has previously said he's super doubtful Nate ever takes a fight in the UFC again despite offering him several fights.

But, based on this video, and everything we know about Nate, he's not worried about ANYTHING. 

NFL Wife Begs Court to Punish Husband ... In Dom. Violence Case

4/16/2018 12:35 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The wife of former NFL lineman Roy Miller says she thought she was "going to die" in front of her children when her husband attacked her in 2017 ... and she's begging the court to throw the book at him. 

As we previously reported, Miller -- who's played for the Bucs, Jags and Chiefs -- was arrested in Nov. 2017 for allegedly attacking his wife at their home in Florida. 

Miller struck a deal with prosecutors in which he plead not guilty to misdemeanor battery but agreed to accept a pre-trial diversion program ... which consists of community service, anger management and fines. 

But Miller's wife is calling for the court to call off that deal because she feels the punishment doesn't fit the crime -- it's too easy for him. 

Instead, she filed new docs with the court describing the assault in graphic detail -- "My husband tackled me as if I was a 320 pound man on the football field. I weigh 135 lbs, the weight of him crushing me and the impact of the blows to the back of my neck and him yanking my head side to side by my braids, was very painful and shocking all at once."

"I thought I was going to die and worst of all in front of my children."

Miller's wife wants the judge to throw out the plea deal and allow her to tell her story in court in hopes of getting a stronger sentence. 

The judge will rule on her motion in the near future.
