Oscar De La Hoya Calls Out Floyd Mayweather Makes $100 Million Offer!!!

FISHING FOR FLOYD
TMZSports.com

Oscar De La Hoya is gunning for a fight with one of the greatest boxers of all-time, Floyd Mayweather, telling TMZ Sports he's got $100 MILLION for Money if he accepts.

And, he wants to fight this year.

We got 48-year-old De La Hoya leaving Rossoblu in L.A. with girlfriend Holly Sonders ... and we asked the boxing legend how he felt after being hospitalized with COVID.

"5 days of hell" is how ODLH described the virus ... but what he really wanted to talk about was returning to the ring.

"You know who I'm gonna call out for my next fight? Floyd Mayweather."

And, that's when Oscar threw out the crazy lucrative proposal, saying ... "I'll offer Floyd Mayweather $100 million."

Remember, De La Hoya hasn't fought since losing to Manny Pacquiao in 2008 ... but was scheduled to return to the ring against Vitor Belfort earlier this month -- before he came down with COVID.

As for 44-year-old Floyd, he's been far more active. His last pro fight was against Conor McGregor in 2017, but he's had several exhibition fights since, including a June 2021 scrap against Logan Paul.

Of course, boxing fans will know Oscar and Floyd -- who had 10 division titles between them -- fought back in 2007 ... in one of the biggest fights of the decade. Mayweather defeated De La Hoya via a split decision.

Will Floyd take the bait and rematch Oscar over 14 years later? Stay tuned.

Billie Eilish Droppin' Two New Pair Of Kicks Collabing W/ Jordan Brand!!!

Move over Travis Scott ... there's a new music superstar collabing with the Swoosh, 'cause Billie Eilish and Jordan Brand linked up and are about to drop brand new kicks.

The 19-year-old pop star revealed the retro Js on her feet in her IG post on Monday -- saying she's "SO excited" for the release.

"I’ve always loved @jumpman23 πŸ₯°," Eilish says, "and it was such an incredible and surreal experience getting to create these, especially in a sustainable fashion."

The new Eilish-Air Jordan collab is a lime green Air Jordan 1 KO -- that has her signature Blohsh logo on the tongue of the shoe.

There are also the Jordan 15s -- Eilish's favorite -- that will come in a tan shade.

The Grammy award-winning singer -- who's big on climate change and eco-friendly -- also announced that both pairs are "100% vegan with over 20% recycled material."

Of course, Billie isn't the first ultra-famous celeb to team up with Nike ... Scott and the brand have created some of the most coveted kicks in the sneaker game. The Scott Nike's have been sold on the secondary market for over $1k.

How will sneakerheads and music fans react to Eilish's sneakers? We'll soon find out.

The kicks will be released on BI's website on Sept. 27 and hit Nike's SNKRS app on the 30th.

Drake Airballs Jump Shot ... In 1-On-1 Game With Tory Lanez

Drake's jumper clearly still needs some work ... 'cause cameras have caught him airballin' yet another shot on the court -- this time in a 1-on-1 game with Tory Lanez.

The whiffed shot all went down in Miami (unclear exactly when) ... when Drake was getting in some run with his fellow rapper.

You can see in some footage of the two musicians' workout, Aubrey pulled up from deep against Lanez, shot the rock ... and then hit nothing but court.

To his credit, he didn't seem too downtrodden after the shot -- and Lanez somehow didn't even talk smack!

Of course, missing rim, backboard and net is nothing new for the "Certified Lover Boy" rapper ... 'cause, you'll recall, back in 2014, he famously missed a shot while in a layup line with the Kentucky men's basketball team.

Unclear who ultimately ended up winning the 1v1 match ... but something tells us if Drake didn't lock in the jumper -- Lanez probably made it a long afternoon in the gym for Drake.

Michael Irvin Raves About Micah Parsons ... Best Rookie In NFL!!!

COWBOY BAD BOY
TMZSports.com

It ain't Ja'Marr Chase, Trevor Lawrence or Kyle Pitts ... no, the best rookie in the NFL at this point is Dallas Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons -- so says Michael Irvin.

The Playmaker made the claim to TMZ Sports out in NYC on Monday -- just one day after Parsons terrorized the Chargers in Dallas' 20-17 win.

"Baddest boy out there, Micah Parsons!" Irvin said. "Bad boy. God Almighty, that man a bad boy!"

"Right now he is [the NFL's best rookie]!"

Of course, it ain't exactly a hot take ... Parsons -- the #12 pick in April's NFL draft -- has nine total tackles, 1 sack and 1 pass breakup in the first two games of the season so far.

He's also played both defensive end AND linebacker ... leading some experts to call the ex-Penn State star the Cowboys' best defensive player.

Fifteen more games left in the season ... Defensive Rookie of the Year hardware on the way after that?

STORYLINES ARE CONVERGING
TMZSports.com

Roman Reigns is only hours away from a rare appearance on WWE's Raw -- reigniting a new rivalry with The New Day and The Bloodline -- and Kofi Kingston says it's gonna be crazzzy!!

TMZ Sports talked to Kingston Monday afternoon ... and we asked the former WWE Champion about Roman Reigns, Jey & Jimmy Uso taking on KK, Xavier Woods and newly crowned WWE Champion, Big E.

"Big E is the WWE champion right now. Roman Reigns the Universal Champion. And we're getting to see the two people are at the top of our industry go toe-to-toe, not to mention with the Uso's and myself and Woods going at it 1 more time, as we have all grown. That in and of itself is gonna be well worth the price of admission," Kofi says.

Of course, The Uso's and The New Day have history ... as did The New Day and The Shield.

But, if you're looking for a lot of trash talk, this ain't the clip for you ... 'cause Kofi says the men have brought out the absolute best in each other over the years.

"[The Bloodline] are the best versions of themselves right now, and then you have [The New Day], probably the strongest bond in the history of WWE," Kofi says.

"I don't know if there's ever been a stronger bond than us. And all the things we've been able to do, and now we are back together, and we're doing it at a high level."

Two great tag teams clashing at the height of their powers.

HE PUT IN THE WORK

We also talked to Kingston about watching his best friend, E, beat Bobby Lashley and take his belt ... a very anxious moment for Kofi.

"I feel like I was wayyy more nervous for E in this situation than I was for myself a couple years ago. But I look over at E in gorilla [position] and he's just like cool as a cucumber, at least on the outside, not nervous at all."

Patrick Mahomes Little Bro Douses Ravens Fans With Water ... After Chiefs Loss

Patrick Mahomes' brother, famous TikTokker Jackson Mahomes, was so tired of being heckled by Ravens fans Sunday ... he straight-up doused the men with water.

The scene went down just minutes after Patrick's Chiefs lost a heartbreaker in Baltimore, 36-35 ... when Ravens fans appeared to be talking smack to Jackson.

In footage of the incident, you can hear people telling the younger Mahomes, "I'm so sorry for you! I'm so sorry for you!"

Another fan added, "Go home, Jackson!"

Eventually, Jackson grew so annoyed with the ribbing ... he pulled out a water bottle, unscrewed the cap, and threw the contents all over the Ravens supporters.

Jackson then headed up the stairs to get inside one of the suites at M&T Bank Stadium.

The Baltimore fans didn't appear to be too shaken up by the water-tossing ... they celebrated with glee after Jackson left his seat.

Jackson, meanwhile, later commented on the incident on his social media page ... saying, "they were thirsty."

Cleveland Browns Fans Throw Violent Punches In Melee ... At Pregame Tailgate

BROWN TOWN BEAT DOWN

A wild melee broke out at a tailgate party just before the Browns' game Sunday ... with several Cleveland fans rockin' each other in the face with violent punches.

The insanity was all captured on video just before the Browns took on the Texans at FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland.

You can see in the footage of the calamity ... the brawl initially began when two fans squared up to fight in the middle of the parking lot.

The scrap was fairly unspectacular -- the dudes connected on only a few punches -- but then when other fans got involved to try to break it all up ... complete chaos ensued.

Video shows about half a dozen people began throwing haymakers at each other ... and eventually, the fracas grew so large, the combatants crashed into a nearby table.

The fight didn't stop there, though ... 'cause they kept scrapping while on the ground, throwing more wild punches.

Eventually, everyone got off each other and dispersed.

It's unclear if any arrests were made over the incident -- we've reached out to police, but so far, no word back yet.

As for the game after the action in the parking lot settled, the Browns were able to win 31-21.

Bills Mafia Do the Table Thing ... But with a Flaming Hot Twist!!!

FIERY FINISHER!
@nicolehouli / Instagram

Bills fans were at it again this weekend as their team got set to face the Miami Dolphins -- busting out the foldable tables for body slams ... only this time, making it combustible.

Check out this crazy video showing a rowdy bunch from the so-called 'Mafia' raging in the parking lot of Hard Rock Stadium ahead of kickoff ... and carrying on their tailgate tradition of throwing themselves (or each other) into Lifetimes -- cracking it in the middle.

They were doing the same here ... except, it was one dude being hoisted up by a couple others, who then tossed him onto a table that was on fire. Looks like a lighter fluid job.

Sure enough, he hits it -- but the table doesn't really snap like it's supposed to ... and even freakier, the guy seems to get caught in the flames for a quick minute. Luckily, he's able to jump out in time before catching on fire himself and runs to safety. Probably a little toasty, we're sure.

As dangerous as the table stunt already is, this takes it to a whole other level -- and it goes without saying ... don't try this at home, kids.

And, to the Mafia ... be careful!

Devin Clark Brutal Photo of Smashed-in Teeth ... After UFC Fight

Talk about getting smashed up ... UFC fighter Devin Clark is going to be spending LOTS of time in the dentist's chair this week, because his teeth are a mess after losing a fight.

It's pretty gruesome ... Clark went the full distance against Ion Cutelaba, but it wasn't easy.  Clark was pummeled the first 2 rounds, and that appears to be when the damage was done.  Cutelaba smashed in the bottom row of Clark's teeth.

PINNED PUNCHES
UFC

The fight, at the UFC Apex in Vegas Saturday night, almost ended after round 2. Clark told his corner his teeth were messed up and there was talk about throwing in the towel, but he came out for the third and final round.

Things got even worse in round 3 when Cutelaba bashed Smith's head into the canvas.

The decision was unanimous in favor of Cutelaba.

UFC honcho Dana White was impressed with Clark's fortitude to stay the course, posting the hard-to-look-at pic with the caption, "one tough dude." True that.

Adele It's Now Official ... Rich Paul's My BF!!!

Pay no mind to all the rumors and photos that came before it ... there is incontrovertible proof this Sunday, Adele and Rich Paul are GF/BF ... 'cause now it's on her Instagram.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

Adele posted a glam pic of her with Rich, along with the telltale heart emoji. They're all gussied up and the pic was taken in a photo booth at a fancy event Saturday night.

Truth be told, they've been together for several months now, but she's never formally acknowledged it to the masses ... until now.

ICYDK ... Paul, a sports agent, heads up United Talent Agency's Klutch Sports and snagged the 9th most powerful sports agents on planet Earth position, according to one of those lists. That kinda puts him in Jerry MaGuire territory. He reps the likes of LeBron James and a bunch of NFL players.

Adele's divorce from Simon Konecki became official in March. They share a son, 8-year-old Angelo. So, the decks are fully cleared for a new relationship.

Congrats!!!

Manny Pacquiao I'm Running for Philippines Prez!!!

Manny Pacquiao has faced many opponents in the ring, but now he's entering a far more brutal sport ... Presidential politics.

Manny says he's gonna run for President of the Philippines in next year's election. He accepted the nomination of his party -- the PDP-Laban party -- at Sunday's convention. True to form, Manny told the crowd, "I am a fighter, and I will always be a fighter inside and outside the ring," adding, "I wholeheartedly, bravely and humbly hope for your support."

The 42-year-old is throwing his hat in the ring just at the right time ... citizens in the country are fed up with the government and many are demanding a change, and Manny may be just the change they're after.

Pacquiao has accused the current administration of gross corruption. It's not the first time he's gotten into politics, in 2016 he was elected as a Senator, grabbing more than 16 million votes.

As for his platform, he says he'll fight poverty and corruption. He says he's qualified because he lived a life of poverty early in life and understands it.

Manny gave a dire warning to current, corrupt politicians ... they "will soon end in jail together."

If anyone in the U.S. thinks it's outlandish for a boxer to become president of a country ... well, pot, meet kettle.

Tana Mongeau Getting 'Crazy' Offers For Celeb Boxing Match

WAITING FOR A CHALLENGE
TMZSports.com

Tana Mongeau could be the next big YouTuber to enter the boxing ring ... 'cause the social media superstar tells TMZ Sports she's gotten "crazy" offers to fight -- and she's definitely not saying "no."

The celeb boxing world has blown up in recent years ... with guys like the Paul bros., KSI and Austin McBroom cashing in on people wanting to see them take some punches.

But, there's been a MASSIVE lack of female representation in YouTube fighting ... and one name that's been rumored to change that is 23-year-old Mongeau, who has nearly 5.5 MILLION followers on the platform.

So, when we ran into TM at LAX recently, we had to ask if she was going to cash in and take a fight.

"We've had some crazy offers," Tana tells us. "A lot of the people who I want to fight don't wanna fight. Not that I'm scary, I don't know why but we're trying to figure it out right now for sure. It’s definitely not a 'no.'"

One person Tana says she wanted to face off against is her hated rival and ex Bella Thorne, but claims the actress wants nothing to do with it.

Speaking of exes, does this mean Tana wants to be the next Jake Paul of boxing?!? Not quite.

"I think comparing myself to Jake Paul is something I try to stay away from for my mental health," Tana joked.

But, don't get it twisted -- Tana says if someone backs up the Brinks trucks she will 100% start training and taking it seriously.

"Obviously if the check is signed, and it's correct, I definitely would start training ... I would definitely for the right bag."
