Hard Rock waitress complains Floyd Mayweather left her no tip at pool party

Floyd Mayweather moneyA waitress at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas complains that boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. and his entourage stiffed her for a tip after partying there on Sunday, the day after Floyd’s victory over Marcos Maidana at the MGM.

According to TMZ, the waitress, Nik Nguyen, says Mayweather and about 150 people in his party — including actor Jamie Foxx — ordered just over $25,000 worth of goodies and did not leave her a tip. Keep in mind that the Hard Rock comped them what they ordered, which included:

5 bottles of Patron – $2,375
3 Grey Goose – $1,425
6 bottles of Ciroc – $2,850
20 bottles of Luc champagne – $11,500
1 6-liter bottle of Luc – $6,500
200 chicken wings – $600
1 fruit platter – $55

The total for the tab was $25,305.

Even if you get comped your bill, you should still tip your server. Everyone knows that.

We’ll go ahead and give Floyd and his entourage the benefit of the doubt here and figure not leaving a tip was just an oversight. Maybe when you have 150 people, they all think someone else will take care of it. Then again, when your nickname is “Money” and you own a $50,000 diamond-encrusted iPod, you shouldn’t be shy about sharing your dough.

Floyd Mayweather says he may fight Manny Pacquiao next

Manny Pacquiao Floyd MayweatherFloyd Mayweather seems more open than ever to fighting Manny Pacquiao.

During his post-fight interview following his unanimous decision victory over Marcos Maidana Saturday night, Mayweather expressed interest in a fight with Pac-Man.

“If the Manny Pacquiao fight presents itself, let’s make it happen,” Mayweather told interviewer Jim Gray.

Mayweather cautioned that Pacquiao still has to beat Chris Algieri in November before they can discuss the once heavily-anticipated fight.

“Manny needs to focus on the guy that’s in front of him. Once he gets past that task we’ll see what the future holds.”

Beginning in late 2009, fans and the media were clamoring for a fight between the two boxers. Mawyeather was (and still is) undefeated, while Pac-Man had won 11 in a row and looked like an unstoppable machine. But the two never met — a number of reasons prevented a deal from being made (drug testing, Bob Arum, etc.) — and Manny went on to lose two fights in a row, decreasing fan interest in the bout.

However, Manny has won two in a row since his consecutive losses and once again looks like one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world and greatest challenger to Floyd. Pacquiao has been dying for a shot at Floyd because he needs the huge payday now that his drawing power decreased (and tax problems increased). Pacquiao’s promoter, Bob Arum, even said they would talk about such a fight.

Ultimately, a fight between Floyd and Manny comes down to whether Floyd will allow it. Floyd only books fights that he knows he can win. He is more protective of his perfect record than anything else in life. Would he put that in jeopardy by facing Manny? Will he choose Amir Khan next? Even though he’s teasing us, I can’t see him ever fighting Pac-Man.

Did Marcos Maidana bite Floyd Mayweather on hand? (Video)

Floyd Mayweather Jr. was in a little trouble after getting punched by Marcos Maidana in the 8th round of their fight Saturday night in Las Vegas, and he complained to the referee that Maidana bit him in the hand.

After Mayweather backed away like a cobra bit him, referee Kenny Bayless separated the two fighters. He examined Mayweather’s gloves first, and then Maidana’s gloves second. He didn’t see anything unusual and let the two continue fighting.

Mayweather had been placing his hand to cover Maidana’s face to keep his opponent from breathing comfortably when they were huddled, so the bite may have been Maidana’s way of retaliating, if it happened. In fact, Maidana seemed to say as much in his post-fight interview. He denied biting Mayweather, but complained that Floyd kept rubbing his eyes.

“After the eighth round I really couldn’t use my left hand,” Mayweather told interviewer Jim Gray after the fight.

Here’s another view of the alleged bite:

Floyd Mayweather girlfriends, baby mamas and domestic violence

floyd-mayweather-jrFloyd Mayweather Jr.’s history with domestic violence has been in the spotlight this week because of increased awareness of the issue resulting from the NFL’s botched handling of the Ray Rice situation.

As Mayweather prepares to make over $30 million for his fight with Marcos Maidana, allow LBS to bring you up to speed regarding Mayweather’s personal life and domestic violence history against his girlfriends and baby mamas.

For starters, Mayweather has never been married. He was engaged to ex-fiancee Shantel Jackson, who is now suing him for allegedly mistreating and assaulting her multiple times while they were together. The two met in 2006 and Floyd convinced her to move out to Las Vegas to be with him. They eventually got engaged, were on-and-off in 2013, and Jackson finally ended their relationship earlier this year.

Miss Jackson broke up with Mayweather because she was tired of all the side girls he had. Keep in mind that Floyd’s philosophy on women is that a man should be allowed to have as many women as they can afford.

[Previously: Mayweather believes men can have multiple women]

Floyd’s philosophy on relationships is extremely hypocritical and demeaning; he believes men should have multiple women, but he gets jealous and even violent if he learns that his women are talking to other men. And that’s without him pledging the commitment of marriage to them!

So here’s the rundown on Mayweather’s personal life.

Floyd Mayweather grilled by Rachel Nichols about domestic violence past (Video)

Floyd Mayweather Jr. is a serial woman beater who is now finally getting called out for his terrible treatment of women.

Mayweather’s domestic violence, which has been going on for at least a decade and has included allegations from the mothers of his children and his ex-fiancee (and a jail stint following a guilty plea), was the subject of a lengthy post by Deadspin’s Daniel Roberts in July. Roberts’ comprehensive coverage of Mayweather’s serial abuse is receiving a lot of attention now that the media and public are taking the issue of domestic violence much more seriously, especially in light of the Ray Rice video/punishment.

Mayweather, who is fighting on Showtime pay-per-view Saturday, did an interview with CNN’s Rachel Nichols to promote his fight. In the interview, Nichols presses Mayweather on his abusive past and does not let up. Mayweather really has no good response for Nichols, who clearly makes him squirm.

We’re pleased that more sports fans and media members are starting to see what we’ve been saying about Floyd for years: he is a bad guy.

When he’s not abusing or assaulting women, he’s assaulting security guards or having his bodyguards beat up people for him. This stuff has been going on with him for years.

Mike Tyson erupts during interview after being called convicted rapist (Video)

Mike Tyson

Mike Tyson went old school Iron Mike on a Canadian TV host who called him a “convicted rapist” during an interview on live TV Wednesday.

Tyson was a guest on CP24 in Canada to promote his 1-man show tour when the host asked him about meeting with Toronto mayor Rob Ford on Tuesday. The host asked Tyson about people who felt Ford being endorsed by a convicted rapist would be a bad thing for the mayor (as if Ford hasn’t done enough drugs on his own to hurt his image).

Tyson flipped out in response, calling the interviewer a negative person, piece of s—, and much more.

You can watch the video below, but beware that the language is full of cursing.

Wife beater Floyd Mayweather wanted light punishment for Ray Rice

Floyd Mayweather honey coffeeRay Rice has found very little support over the past few days in the wake of the video that was released showing him punching his now-wife Janay Palmer and knocking her unconscious. You probably won’t be surprised to hear that Floyd Mayweather Jr. is one of the few people who decided to show sympathy for the former Baltimore Ravens running back.

On Tuesday, Mayweather said he believes the NFL should have stuck to its original decision to suspend Rice for two games.

“They had said that they had suspended him for two games,” Mayweather said, via MLive.com’s David Mayo. “Whether they saw the tape or not, I truly believe a person should stick to their word. If you tell me you’re going to do something, do what you say you’re going to do. But once again, I’m not in the NFL, so I can’t really speak on the situation.”

He’s not the first person to make that argument, as some feel the NFL has shown a great deal of hypocrisy by knowing what was on the tape and acting outraged now that the public has seen the footage. The next point Mayweather made was pathetic.

“I think there’s a lot worse things that go on in other people’s households, also,” he said. “It’s just not caught on video.”

In other words, Rice’s punishment should have been lighter because it’s not his fault he just happened to be caught on video. Plenty of people get away with it, so Rice was just plain unlucky, right?

Mayweather also wishes “nothing but the best” for Rice and his wife and expressed sympathy over what Rice has to go through. Floyd said he would be crushed if someone told him he couldn’t box, so he understands how Rice must be feeling.

You know what the other reason is that Mayweather can relate to Rice? The boxing champ has been convicted of domestic assault twice and had to spend more than two months in jail for it back in 2012. His ex-girlfriend Shantel Jackson also recently accused Mayweather of threatening her with a gun and assaulting her multiple times. It’s no surprise he understands where Rice is coming from.
