T.I. Vs. Mayweather, And 5 Other Rappers Who Clashed With Athletes

Page 1 of 212

T.I. and Floyd Mayweather had a pretty big bust-up at the weekend: a fight broke out after the boxer allegedly made some untoward comments about improper friendship between the boxer and the rapper's wife, Tameka "Tiny" Cottle. Punches and chairs were reportedly thrown in the fight between the two celebs who were filmed brawling in a Vegas Fatburger.

In honour of the sheer scandal the incident has generated, we've rounded up a list of five other examples where rappers have battled with sports stars, indicating an almost cat-and-dog-like relationship between the two professionals.

1) 50 Cent Vs. Floyd Mayweather

So...it's not the first time Mayweather has had a little beef with a famed rap-smith. The pair haven't reconciled since a fight that started years ago when they fell out. In late 2012, 50 claimed that the quarrel started when Floyd "Money" Mayweather in running his Mayweather Promotions company before turning himself in to serve a three-month jail sentence that ended in August.

However, when he came out of jail, 50 was shocked to see the friend that he'd helped splashing out on gold chains and Lamborghini cars. The rapper confronted the boxer and a rapid and angry Twitter back-and-forth began. The situation culminated in blows at least twice, according to MTV but the 'In Da Club' MC - much like T.I. wasn't about to let the media jump on the fact he'd been walloped by the boxer. "I won, every time," he claimed. "It was more out of reflex though. He punched me."

 2) Lil Wayne Vs. Chris Bosh

Lil Wayne and the NBA star Chris Bosh had a big falling out last year when the rapper claimed he had slept with the Miami Heat star's wife and now baby-mamma, Adrienne. Weezy had boasted about having sex with Adrienne in a YouTube video, saying "You let them n*ggas know I'm from the streets so I ain't going on no Twitter beef -- take it to the f*cking streets n*gga. F*ck all these n*ggas. F*ck LeBron, f*ckD-Wade, f*ck all them n*ggas man. And, and, and I f*cked Chris Bosh's wife."

It didn't exactly come to fisticuffs between the pair but there's a little frost in the air nonetheless: Wayne has never apologised for his claims and Bosh has refused to acknowledge what Wayne said about him during the concert in which he called out the entire Miami Heat team after his alleged banning last summer. "[Sleeping with Chris Bosh's wife?] I said that? [laughs] I was too turnt up that night. I was a little too turnt up," said Wayne on Jimmy Kimmel, laughing off his comments.
