Gabriel Iglesias -- aka Fluffy -- put his tour on hold to save his life, and now it's clear what's he's been doing to get healthy ... boxing.

Iglesias canceled some stops on his hugely successful comedy tour earlier this month citing health and emotional issues. Well, now we've learned, Fluffy's been hitting the gym with celeb boxing trainer Ricky Funez and he's already dropped over 20 pounds.

At the time he stopped his tour, he weighed more than 360 lbs.

We're told Fluffy puts on the gloves 5x a week for 2 hours at a time ... putting in work in the ring and on the speed bag ...  his goal is to shed 50 more pounds before hitting the road again.

Funez is no stranger to training celebs ... Justin Bieber, Floyd Mayweather and Mike Epps have all rolled through his Ten Goose Boxing in the valley.

Cue the 'Rocky' theme song!

Brett Favre I Know I Can Play At NFL Level But I Don't Wanna Get Hit Anymore!

3/23/2017 11:52 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

47-year-old Brett Favre says he KNOWS he still has the arm to compete in the NFL ... but he just doesn't wanna get hit anymore.

The ex-NFL star says he's flattered by ATL Falcons CB Robert Alford -- who strongly feels Favre could make a comeback after their workout in Louisiana this week ... but it ain't happening.

"I could still make the throws," Favre tells TMZ Sports ... "If they promise they won't hit me, I'll play."

There's more ... Favre says he's far more concerned about the longterm effects of concussions and is invested in multiple companies -- including Prevacus and Brock USA -- in the hopes of preventing and treating brain injuries.

Favre says he feels it's his "duty" to try and make the game better and safer for future NFL players and he's touring around with Sqor Sports in hopes of doing just that.

But, when it comes to his own family members playing the game he loves, Brett says he would "strongly discourage" his grandsons from playing football based on the medical information he has today.

"Yeah, you may make a good salary ... but what happens in the end if you have enough concussions? It may be a tragic end."

Lil Eazy-E Changing HIV Law Would Be Crazy ... Exposing Partners IS a Felony!

3/22/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Lil Eazy-E is ripping California lawmakers for even thinking about lowering the penalty for knowingly exposing a sex partner to HIV, because doing so could give unscrupulous people a license to kill.

Lil Eazy, whose father died from AIDS complications in 1995, says there's gotta be hard consequences ... and a proposed bill does the exact opposite. The bill would make it a misdemeanor instead of a felony, as it is now.

The idea is reportedly an effort to eliminate the stigma of being HIV positive, but Lil E -- an HIV activist -- thinks it's a Pandora's box.

He adds ... "common sense" dictates leaving the law unchanged.

3/18/2017 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Noah Hathaway, who played Atreyu in the 'NeverEnding Story' films, is still plagued by a spinal injury from film rehearsals over 30 years ago that cost him nearly $1 million in surgeries.

Noah's been in and out of hospitals ever since he was 12, after a rogue horse crushed 2 of his lower vertebrae during a rehearsal for the movie. Noah somehow plowed through filming in great pain, but it's lingered for decades.

Noah's bills have amounted to $800k over the years. He's out of money and his latest spinal fusion surgery put him $184k in the red. His neighbor has set up a GoFundMe account, trying to raise $200k to cover his costs.

If Noah gets the full $200k, the $16k balance will go in part to his dog's vet. Cash the French bulldog has some serious cysts that need to be removed.

Criss Angel was rushed to a Vegas ER Friday after passing out during a straight jacket act.

The famous illusionist was performing for his Mindfreak Live! gig Friday night at the Luxor Hotel, where eyewitnesses say the show was canceled 10 minutes into the opening act ... after Criss dangled upside down in a straight jacket and attempted to escape.

After spinning in vain for about 2 minutes, he was quickly lowered down and the curtain closed onstage. We're told he appeared unconscious as guests were ushered out. 

Criss was taken to Spring Valley Hospital Medical Center's emergency room about 4 miles away, and we're told he was discharged the same night. A source tells us he "walked out of here" sometime before 10 PM. 

We've reached out to reps at Luxor for more details on what went wrong during Criss's act ... so far, no word back.
