A brawl erupted between rapper T.I. and professional boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. in Las Vegas in the wee hours of May 25 after T.I. threw the first punch.
Oh, T.I. Why?! Why would you throw a punch at professional boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr.? That’s literally the most awful decision you could have made. Late on the night of May 25, a brawl erupted between T.I., 33, and Floyd, 37, on the Las Vegas strip — and there’s video.
T.I. Throws A Punch At Floyd Mayweather Jr. — Worst Idea Ever?
Floyd was sitting in Fatburger — a burger joint on the Las Vegas strip — when T.I. walked up and took a swing at Floyd, TMZ is reporting.
Each of their bodyguards jumped in to try and control the situation, but that’s when it really got out of hand — the video is pretty crazy, check it out:
Floyd must have done something to deeply offend T.I., because throwing a punch at a boxer sounds like a death wish to us!
At one point, Floyd can be heard yelling for T.I. to “control [his] b****”, but it’s unclear who the b**** in question is.
T.I. Vs. Floyd Mayweather, Jr. — Next On Pay-Per-View?
Las Vegas police showed just as Floyd was leaving, and T.I. had already gone, TMZ reports, and police have confirmed that a Fatburger employee was “slashed during the fight”, which makes us wonder when sharp things entered the mix. However, the employee “refused treatment and did not want to cooperate with investigating officers.”
Rapper 50 Cent posted a hilarious video on his Instagram, reacting to the fight with a fake phone call to Floyd where he tells him, “uppercut ain’t gone mean s**t when n****s start shooting.” WATCH:
Floyd’s last big fight was on May 3 — a day which will live in infamy as the one where Khloe Kardashian was spotted showing some PDA with French Montana, and Justin Bieber posted an Instagram of himself with Kylie Jenner and model Yovanna Ventura very shortly after his falling out with Selena Gomez. Floyd, drama just follows you around, doesn’t it?
