Floyd Mayweather’s baby mamas Melissia Brim and Josie Harris fight (Video)

On Sunday we told you about Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s baby mamas getting into a fight with one another over Instagram. Now we can present video the two of them going at it during a boxing event at The Palms in Las Vegas Saturday night.

[Previously: Read about the Instagram fight between Mayweather's baby mamas]

Floyd MayweatherBoxing Scene shared this video Sunday and said it was of Mayweather in a “minor confrontation” with a woman at The Palms during a boxing card put on by Mayweather’s “The Money Team.” We’re pretty confident Boxing Scene has the story wrong, because the video appears to show Floyd’s baby mama Melissia Brim yelling at someone behind Floyd (who looks like the other baby mama — Josie Harris) before being escorted out by security.

The woman getting kicked out is definitely Brim — she shared photos on Instagram Saturday of herself wearing the exact same clothes:

Brim appears to be yelling at a woman in sunglasses seated close to Floyd. The woman in sunglasses looks a lot like Harris. It seems like Floyd was actually trying to play peacemaker between them. The confrontation between the women also explains the Instagram drama, too.

Mayweather keeps both his baby mamas involved in his life because he maintains relationships with all of his children. He’s also been known to maintain sexual relationships with the baby mamas.

Floyd has three children with Harris and one with Brim. He would be wise to keep the two baby mamas apart in the future, though he’s never been known to maintain a conventional structure to his personal life.

Floyd Mayweather Sr: 50 Cent is a ‘player hater,’ should fight my son

Floyd Mayweather Sr.Floyd Mayweather Sr. was asked for his thoughts on the ongoing feud between 50 Cent and Floyd Mayweather Jr. during an interview with “The Vegas Take” on Fox Sports 760 Las Vegas on Thursday, and per usual the elder Mayweather did not disappoint. From what we could understand, Mayweather Sr. is not happy with 50.

“50 Cent, let me tell you something, 50 Cent seems like he’s got a problem since Floyd left him,” Floyd Sr. said. “Whatever it was that made Floyd leave, he left. Floyd had nothing else to say about it. That’s 50 Cent that keeps putting stuff all over … He’s a world known singer and acting like a kid, man.”

Mayweather Sr. also pointed out how 50 Cent was asked to spell some word (we aren’t sure what he’s talking about) and couldn’t do it. He then called the rapper a “player hater.”

“All the hip-hop fighters, all the R&B fighters, all of them — I don’t give a damn if they’re white, black, Jew, mexican whatever, pretty much all of them have dropped out of school,” Mayweather said. “My son ain’t got no reason to look back about nothing. He did his job. He ain’t gotta worry about nobody like 50 Cent because 50 Cent is a player hater.”

And of course, Mayweather Sr. thinks 50 should stop talking and put the gloves on if he has a problem.

“Put the video out when he go up against Floyd, he weighs over 100-something pounds over Floyd,” he said. “Let him go against Floyd, then we’ll have something to talk about. Floyd will stop all that s— in the papers. There won’t be no more said when Floyd gets ahold of his ass.”

While 50 recently said he loves Mayweather Jr. and just disagrees with the concept of The Money Team, it’s obvious he is determined to get under the champ’s skin. He seems to have pissed Floyd’s dad off in the process.

50 Cent opens up about relationship with Floyd Mayweather

floyd-mayweather-50-cent

For whatever reason, 50 Cent has launched a full-blown social media assault on Floyd Mayweather Jr. over the past couple of weeks. It started with 50’s spin-off on the Ice Bucket Challenge when he offered to donate a ton of money to the charity of Mayweather’s choice if Floyd could read one page of a Harry Potter book. The feud has snowballed from there.

The interesting thing about all this is 50 Cent and Mayweather used to be best friends. During a recent interview with Miranda Johnson of XXL Magazine, 50 tried to explain how his relationship with the champ went south.

“Floyd is one-dimensional,” he said, via Edward Chaykovsky of BoxingScene.com. “The Money Team concept is one-dimensional. We actually started pushing it during the recession. It was cool because his viewership was going up but it’s not actually the right message for me and who I am.

“So I started working with the United Nations and The World Food Program and Feeding America. Providing meals through the SK Energy Shots and that was at the same time because I started realizing that this is not the right concept of what you should present to the public.”

In other words, 50 decided that Floyd is too selfish. He said that Mayweather does things he doesn’t understand, which results in 50 becoming agitated and doing things in response — like posting this hilarious Manny Pacquiao meme mocking Floyd. However, 50 insists he loves Mayweather like a little brother.

“I don’t hate him. I love him, actually,” he said. “Entering the sport of boxing is a reflection of that relationship. He doesn’t make any money away from the sport of boxing. That tells you when he’s done fighting, he’s done period. I just try to encourage him to do things away from the sport…

“It’s pretty tough to digest the concept that we don’t spend money the same. He spends all of his money. He lives a richer lifestyle than we actually live day to day. In the end, it’s not a sustainable lifestyle. I’ll have to help him when it gets too tough. We’ve had conversations about this.”

Could this be why Mayweather recently welcomed Warren Buffett to The Money Team? Maybe he realized that he needs to explore other avenues for making money, especially since he is in his late 30s. I doubt he’s worried just yet, regardless of what Curtis has to say.

50 Cent mocks Floyd Mayweather with great Manny Pacquiao meme

Manny Pacquiao Floyd Mayweather meme

50 Cent really is a master troll. The guy loves screwing with former best buddy Floyd Mayweather Jr. and has no chill. On Wednesday, 50 hit Floyd with possibly his best burn yet.

Playing off the whole saga over Floyd’s supposed inability to read, 50 posted this great meme with Manny Pacquiao on Instagram.

Things have gotten so bad that Floyd’s publicist sent out a note and video to the media this week assuring everyone that Floyd can, in fact, read.

Don’t forget that shortly after breaking up with Floyd, 50 started buddying up with Pacquiao. These hanger-on rappers ain’t loyal!

Floyd Mayweather can read, so says his publicist (Video)

Floyd MayweatherThe question of whether or not Floyd Mayweather Jr. can read — rather, the question of at what level can Floyd Mayweather Jr. read — was raised last week by his former buddy 50 Cent.

50 used to be close to Floyd like a brother, but the two had a big falling out around the time Floyd went to jail for his domestic violence assault. Since then, 50 Cent has spent a lot of time messing with Mayweather.

Last week, instead of doing the Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS, 50 decided to issue a better challenge to Mayweather: read a page out of a Harry Potter book without stumbling or starting over and I’ll donate $750,000 to charity. A day later, 50 lowered expectations by saying Floyd just had to read “The Cat in the Hat.”

Things went from funny to serious after a radio station shared an audio clip of Mayweather struggling to read some promos. Many people had a laugh over Money’s seeming illiteracy.

Anyway, fast forward to this week and Mayweather’s publicist felt the need to email the media to assure the public that Mayweather, in fact, can read.

“I have worked with Floyd Mayweather since 2005 and feel it is only right that I come to his defense. The unfair reports that Floyd cannot read, which have been posted on social media by various individuals and reported by certain media outlets, are simply not true. The proof is in the pudding.

“Please watch and download a video (using the link below) that was recorded by Floyd for promotional purposes (which included taping a spot for a CBS College Football game and a spot promoting his fight against Marcos Maidana).

“Appreciate your time and attention with regard to this matter. I believe it is extremely unfair for people to make claims against others that are unfounded and hence, filled with malice. I hope you are willing to help me right this wrong and report “the rest of this story” with these facts.”

The aforementioned video is posted at the top of the page.

Like I said, this isn’t really a question of whether or not Floyd can read, but how well he can read. Given that Floyd and 50 used to be besties, I trust 50’s knowledge on this one.

Floyd Mayweather welcomes Warren Buffett to The Money Team

Floyd-Mayweather-Warren-Buffett

Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Warren Buffett probably don’t have a lot in common, but we know they can certainly relate to one another when it comes to wealth. On Tuesday night, the two incredibly rich men got together to discuss finances.

“I had a great meeting with the $66.9 billion dollar man, Mr. Warren Buffett,” Mayweather wrote on Instagram. “We talked about how we could turn a $100 million of my assets to $1 billion. Mr. Warren Buffett is the original founder of The Money Team, he’s just one of my billionaire buddies.”

Buffett, 83, is the most successful investor in the world. We spend so much time talking about how ridiculously wealthy Mayweather is that we forget there are people out there who dwarf his net worth. Floyd’s estimated net worth of about $300 million is roughly 1/200th of Buffett’s $60 billion-plus.

Mayweather is right. Buffett is the original founder of The Money Team, even if he doesn’t own one of these.

Floyd Mayweather responds to Amir Khan saying Manny Pacquiao would be tougher

Amir Khan Floyd Mayweather

Amir Khan has been angling for a fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. for about two years, but he’s still waiting for his day. His latest comments on the matter were not exactly well-received by Floyd.

Khan (29-3, 19 KOs) has won three fights in a row since firing ex-trainer Freddie Roach after consecutive losses in 2012. In comments made to The Guardian earlier this month, Khan indicated he preferred a fight with Manny Pacquiao over Floyd because it would be tougher for him.

“Boxing is all about timing and Manny and Floyd are getting older,” Khan told The Guardian. “Someone has to take their place. Mayweather would be a very technical fight, like a game of chess. But I think Manny would be harder. He’s much more aggressive and it would be more intense. But with my trainer Virgil Hunter I’m a much better and more defensive fighter.”

One thing to keep in mind is that Khan said Pacquiao would be a tougher opponent for him, not that Pac-Man is a better overall fighter than Floyd. Boxing, like many other competitions, is about styles and matchups. Regardless of that context, Floyd didn’t care for Khan’s comments.

“I saw the comments where he thought Manny would give him a tougher fight than me. I have no response to that. I will just remind him of those comments after I have beaten him,” Mayweather said to the Daily Mail in response to Khan.

The good news is that Floyd is still considering Khan as a future opponent.

“He is an exciting young fighter – but I don’t just fight anybody – they have to prove themselves.

“If you ask me will the fight happen – then I would say yes. I hope next year – but these fights are always about timing.”

Mayweather is facing Marcos Maidana in a rematch next month while Pacquiao is taking on Chris Algieri in November. Khan doesn’t have another fight scheduled yet, but he could try something with Kell Brook next year before hoping to win the Pacquiao or Mayweather sweepstakes. Maybe one day one of those fights will happen.
