Perhaps ‘Money’ Mayweather should save his skills for the boxing ring.
Diners looking for a late night Memorial Day snack at a Las Vegas Fatburger restaurant ended up witnessing an unscheduled bout between boxing champ floyd mayweather and rapper T.I. in the early hours of Sunday morning (April 25th).
Rapper T.I. took on Floyd Mayweather in a Vegas restaurant
TMZ reports that Mayweather was eating in the restaurant when the rapper stormed in and launched a verbal attack on the champ. Things then got physical, with T.I. allegedly taking a swing at Mayweather before bodyguards jumped in. A full on scuffle then began, which appears to have gotten extremely heated, leaving one restaurant employee injured.
In video footage obtained by TMZ, Mayweather can be heard telling the rapper to “control your bitch” during the altercation. Both parties were said to have left the scene before police arrived.
Mayweather has since spoken to blogger NecoleBitchie and stated that he believes the altercation came about after T.I.’s wife Tiny shared snaps of herself and the boxer on Instagram. Mayweather said T.I. had previously approcached him over other photographs posted by his wife and that the rapper appears to have been further angered by pictures posted by Tiny of her and Mayweather's daughter over the weekend.
Mayweather said that he told T.I. when he approached him in the restaurant “you must’ve forgot what I did for a living,” but T.I. replied, “You do in the ring, I do it in the streets,” after which he says "people got to pushing and a riot kinda broke out. And then a bunch of chaos and that was basically it.”

Mayweather has since said he's only sorry for one thing, the comment he made towards Tiny. He told the gossip site "I do apologize to Tiny because she cool people, man. She cool. She never been disrespectful to me.” He has also stated that he and Tiny have never slept together "Tiny is married. I respect that. I don’t care if y’all separated, she’s still married under God’s eyes and the law," adding, "I’m not going to sleep with a married woman. I’m not going to do that."
T.I. has yet to comment on the incident.
