Floyd Mayweather's Dad

FALLS HARD

... At Pre-Fight Dance Party

5/4/2015 8:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

At least ONE Mayweather went down this weekend ... Floyd's father ... who ate it HARD during a pre-fight concert ... and TMZ Sports has the video. 

Floyd Mayweather Sr. got up onstage and did his best James Brown impression to the tune of "Sex Machine" at the Fiesta Rancho Casino in Las Vegas on Thursday. 

But while he was lettin' loose -- he lost his footing ... and went crashing down to the dance floor. 

The good news -- like a true pro, the 62-year-old popped RIGHT BACK UP and continued to dance ... even busting out the signature James Brown "Camel Walk" dance move.

Ludacris

MASSIVE Brawl Erupts

At Vegas Pool Party

5/4/2015 7:07 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The REAL fight in Vegas went down the day after Mayweather-Pacquiao -- a huge melee at the Rehab pool party hosted by Ludacris.

The video is absolute INSANITY -- showing multiple brawls around the pool on Sunday at the Hard Rock Hotel -- fists, chairs, bottles, ice buckets and more were hurled. Even before the fight broke out ... you can see the crowd rip a door off its hinges to burst into the party! 

Jamie Foxx and Will Smith's son Trey were also at the party at some point -- though it appears they weren't involved or injured in the fight. Perks of VIP.

Here's the odd thing -- Vegas cops tell us they got no calls for this brawl. We've got a call in to the Hard Rock too.

Manny Pacquiao

Aunt Claims

Fight Was Fixed

5/3/2015 3:49 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

The Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight was unanimous in everyone's eyes, but Manny's aunt and cousins are steadfast ... the fight was fixed.

Aunt Lilia and crew were leaving the Mandalay Bay on Sunday when our photog asked whether Manny was cheated, remember the boxer felt he had won the fight. His family went 5 steps further and claimed the whole thing was rigged and people got paid off. 

They weren't done... they also trash talked Floyd.

TMZ Sports got Aunt Lilia back in March when she belted out the signature tune from 'Frozen." She might want to take some advice ... let it go.

Dennis Rodman

STRIPPER FIESTA

... At Thong'd Out BDay Party

5/3/2015 4:51 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Ass. Ass. Ass. Ass. Ass.

That seemed to be the theme at Dennis Rodman's birthday party blowout this weekend ... and TMZ Sports has all the thong'd out footage.

It all went down at Sapphire gentlemen's club in Vegas -- where The Worm was constantly flanked by a team of talented twerkaholic strippers. 

But it wasn't just about lap dances ... Dennis also mingled with fans, signed autographs and took pics with anyone who asked. 

Still ... ass.

Jay Z

Can I Go Home Yet?

5/3/2015 2:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Nobody was feeling Jay Z's after party in Las Vegas the way he was -- and that's a good thing ... 'cause from the looks of It Jay just wanted to be somewhere else.

Jay Z hosted, undoubtedly, the most exclusive Mayweather-Pacquiao bash at Marquee Nightclub Saturday night ... VIP tables went for $50k.

He and Beyoncé held court at their own table right on the dance floor -- but while the DJ was trying to get the crowd going, Jigga seemed to be dreaming ... of laying his head on his pillow.

Of course, his pillow was probably on a G6 ... WITH Bey ... so, can't blame the guy.

Justin Bieber

'F*** Pacquiao!!!'

5/3/2015 7:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Justin Bieber was amped up at Rehab in Vegas before the fight ... singing to Big Sean -- which is surprising -- and making his feelings about Manny Pacquiao clear.

Justin partied with the crowd before walking out with Floyd Mayweather, and at 33 seconds you can see him mouth the words, "f*** Pacquiao" ... he then flips the bird.

It's also interesting he's felling Big Sean, whose breaking with Ariana Grande did not go well.  You'll recall he just gave her a squeeze from behind a few weeks back, which set Sean off.  We're told Sean doesn't have hard feelings for Biebs ... he thinks Ariana just used him.

Bieber knows how to have fun ... half the battle in life.

 

Jake Gyllenhaal

Not Moved By Jamie's National Anthem

5/3/2015 8:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

update_graphic_red_bar8:20 AM PT -- Jake's rep tells TMZ the actor was not passing judgment on Jamie's performance, saying,  he and Antoine "were laughing at something completely unrelated to Jamie's performance."

update_grey_gray_barJake Gyllenhaal was not impressed by Jamie Foxx's soulful rendition of the National Anthem, but at least he got in a few laughs.

Jake was sitting ringside with his "Southpaw" director Antoine Fuqua when Jamie took the mic.  No doubt Jamie struggled ... he took his earpiece out immediately which is a sign of technical trouble.

Jake and Anton yukked it up and Jake checked his texts, then briefly sung along.

But props to Jamie ... he was more exciting than the fight.

Mayweather/Pacquiao Fight

G-5 Traffic Jam

5/3/2015 7:59 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0530-private-jets-twitterIn case you wondered if the Mayweather/Pacquiao fight was a rich people's event, check out the aerial view of the private jets at McCarran International Airport in Vegas.

The pic was snapped Saturday and it makes it very clear ... you won't see many 7-figure figures sitting backwards on Southwest on the ride back.

There are so many jets it almost looks like a valet parking lot, where they squeeze the cars in so tight ... they have to move 2 in order for one to drive away.

Grandma Mayweather

Manny's Got to Apologize to Floyd

For Talkin' S***'

5/3/2015 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Floyd Mayweather may have hugged Manny Pacquiao after the fight, but all is not forgiven with Floyd's fierce grandma.

Bernice Mayweather was leaving the MGM Grand in Vegas after the fight when to told our photog ... there can be no post-fight friendship until Manny takes back all his trash talk against the champ.

Bernice has a thing or 2 to say about drugs, confidence and strip clubs, where she says she'd happily meet her grandson because, after all, she's fully grown.

0502_patriots_private-jet_insideMOST BALLER DAY EVER!!!!!!!

Rob Gronkowski -- along with some of his New England Patriots teammates -- just hopped on a private jet after watching the Kentucky Derby ... and are now headed to Vegas for the fight!!

BALLER!!!!!!

The Derby was a major team outing -- even Tom Brady made the trip out to Louisville -- but it looks like the QB tapped out when Gronk and Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola decided to charter a jet to Sin City. 

It's good to be rich.

ESPN's Michelle Beadle

Mayweather Banned Me

... Floyd Calls BS

0502-michelle-beadle-rachel-nichols-tmz-getty-01update_graphic_red_bar

11:45 AM PT -- Michelle just tweeted -- "After hearing my credential was pulled, I went home. Told this morning that HBO was able to get it re-approved late last night. That's it. All she wrote. I will now concentrate on Game 7. #GoSpursGo"

10:53 AM PT --Floyd's camp says the reporters are ALL WRONG -- claiming they were NEVER blocked from attending the fight.

Floyd's rep Kelly Swanson just went to Twitter and said, "No one including ME banned [Rachel Nichols] from covering the fight. She is already credentialed. #Facts"

"And [Michelle Beadle] isn't even on the pres list. She's credentialed through [HBO Boxing]. Yes credentialed. #Fact#2"

Swanson says both reporters still have their credentials.

update_grey_gray_barESPN reporter Michelle Beadle says she has been blocked from attending tonight's Mayweather v. Pacquiao fight ... and claims it's all because she ruffled some feathers in Mayweather's camp.

Floyd's camp hasn't explained why Beadle is blocked -- but it seems it has to do with the fact Michelle has been critical of Floyd and his history with domestic violence.

CNN reporter Rachel Nichols says she has also been blocked from the fight -- Nichols has suggested the ban has to do with the fact she pressed Mayweather on his violent past during an interview back in September.

We're reaching out to Mayweather's camp for an explanation, stay tuned.

Mayweather vs. Pacquiao

Fire Sale On Tix

... Investors Losing Big $$$

5/2/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0501-floyd-mayweather-manny-pacquiao-tickets-fire-FUN-ART--1

It was supposed to be the hottest ticket of the year ... but it's gone cold ... and now multiple investors who tried to flip tickets to Mayweather vs. Pacquiao tell TMZ Sports they're losing BIG MONEY.

As we previously reported, ringside seats hit the market for upwards of $80,000 ... and face value of the crappy seats originally went on sale for $1,500.

A bunch of high profile ticket brokers and investors bought up as many tickets as they could get -- thinking it was a sure bet ... since interest in the fight has been through the roof.

But it just ain't panning out -- with one broker blaming the high prices and the fact that tickets only went on sale 10 days before the fight -- and investors are losing their asses. 

One company told us they initially bought 80 tickets ... but only moved 20 ... and now they're holding the bag on 60 high-priced stubs.

"It's an embarrassment. We lost a significant amount of money," one broker tells us. 

Same story for another ticket broker -- who tells us things have gotten "desperate" and they're slashing prices like crazy. 

At this point, we're told brokers are just trying to break even ... and anything more than that would be a huge victory at this point. 

Diddy

When in Vegas ...

Bring Extra Protection!

5/2/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Diddy Mayweather Pacquiao PartyDiddy wants to leave the fighting to the professionals this weekend in Las Vegas, so he's taking extra precautions to make sure he doesn't get into any trouble during his Mayweather/Pacquiao party. 

The rap mogul is once again hosting a huge after-party for the fight at the Havana Room & Beach Club at the Tropicana -- but Diddy wants this fiesta to go smoother than his Super Bowl event ... where he got into a fight with a pissed off fan.

According to our sources, here's Diddy game plan:

-- his VIP section will be far away from normies (unlike SB weekend) 
-- 20 extra security guards to watch over his VIP section
-- guards instructed to immediately toss anyone heckling Diddy

Mo money, less problems ... that's the goal, anyway.
