Floyd Mayweather ‘Doesn’t Matter’ If Tenshin KOs Me … I’ll Still Be Undefeated

Floyd Mayweather is makin’ it crystal clear his fight with Tenshin Nasukawa is strictly entertainment … and the fight’s outcome is irrelevant — even if Money ends up unconscious on the canvas.

Mayweather and Tenshin addressed the media at Floyd’s Vegas gym … and talked about their highly-anticipated New Year’s Eve bout in Japan.

“It’s all about entertainment. 9 minutes of entertainment” … Floyd said.

In fact, fight promoters say there ain’t even gonna be judges scoring the 3-round boxing match.

But, what if Tenshin drops Floyd — who’s never been knocked down — and he can’t get up? 

“If he gets knocked out. If I get knocked out. It don’t go on my record. I’m still 50-0 at the end of the day. So, it really doesn’t matter.”

Knockin’ Floyd out is exactly what Tenshin’s trying to do.

“I’m training very hard everyday to face Mr. Mayweather.”

Watch him hit the mitts … he ain’t lying.

Manny Pacquiao I’ll Retire In 3 Years

EXCLUSIVE

Manny Pacquiao has put an expiration date on his boxing career — telling TMZ Sports the plan is to fight until 2021 … and then hang up the gloves for good. 

Manny — who turns 40 next month — has a big fight coming up against Adrien Broner in January. Since there aren’t a lot of guys fighting into their 40s, we asked if he would retire if he lost the fight. 

Of course, Manny is super confident and told us losing ain’t an option — but either way, he plans on fighting for 3 more years before moving on to the next phase of his life. 

So, what’s next for Manny? He’s got options. 

Not only is he a politician back home in the Philippines … he also dabbles in music and basketball. Remember, the guy owns his own hoops LEAGUE in his country. 

In fact, we spotted PacMan out on the court in Los Angeles where he hit the winning shot during a pickup game at Pan Pacific Park on Wednesday. He ain’t exactly Allen Iverson, but he’s got some game. Some.

Michael B. Jordan Roy Jones Jr. Issues Clap Back … I’ll Bust Your Ass, Kid

EXCLUSIVE

Michael B. Jordan‘s mouth might’ve written a check that his ass can’t cash … ‘cause Roy Jones Jr. says he heard MBJ say he could beat Roy, and now he wants him to prove it in the ring.

In case you missed it … we got Mike leaving Avenue nightclub in Hollywood Saturday, and asked if he if there are any real boxers he thinks he could beat with his ‘Creed’ fight training.

Jordan pulled Roy Jones Jr.’s name out of the sky … saying the 49-year-old has slowed down just enough for him to beat him. We spoke to Roy, and not only does he disagree, but he’s also anxious to prove it.

“If Michael B wants this real, contact Roy Jones Jr. and we’ll make it happen.”

Roy, who’s still an active fighter, says he gives less than a damn about the age difference — MBJ is 31 — because his 30-plus years of ring expertise will be the difference.

“I know he can’t beat me still. I know he’s probably in better condition because he’s younger … but I’m an old school vet.”

BTW — this is not talk. Roy Jones Jr. wants to fight Michael B. Jordan. For real. Roy says the fight would be a perfect promotion for the movie, which comes out this week, although the fight would have to wait a little bit.

“[I’d] probably need, for him, about four or five weeks.”

Hey Mike … don’t back out now pretty boy.

Megyn Kelly: I’ll Spill All the Tea on NBC, Unless…

Megyn Kelly is off the air.

But she is not yet out of the building.

Not yet, at least. Not officially, that is.

The embattled reported is no longer appearing on NBC, as we’re sure most of our readers know quite well by now.

She has been relieved of her duties as host of Megyn Kelly Today after anchoring a segment about controversial Halloween costumes…

… which somehow devolved into Kelly wondering why blackface is considered racist.

Despite a written apology and an on-air apology the day after this segment aired, Kelly was essentially fired by NBC not long after her initial comments went public and severe backlash quickly followed.

However, while Kelly has no job to attend to this morning, she is still technically a network employee.

The star and her legal team continue to negotiate a buyout, with many sources indicating that Kelly will be paid about $ 38 million to walk away. This is the approximate amount remaining on her contract.

Now, though, TMZ cites another obstacle on the path to the full dissolution of this partnership.

Insiders tell the website that NBC wants Kelly to sign a confidentiality agreement.

This is standard operating procedure for this sort of situation — and executives are especially afraid of what Kelly might tell the world after she parts ways because she was unafraid to air NBC’s dirty laundry even while working for the company.

Remember: Kelly interviewed one of Matt Lauer’s alleged sexual assault victims last year.

She has also admitted that she knows about all of Lauer’s skeletons, which likely means she also has dirt of some higher-ups who may have covered up for these skeletons over the years.

It makes sense for NBC to try and make sure Kelly cannot spill such damaging tea to the world after she signs a new deal with Fox News or whomever.

Kelly’s lawyer, meanwhile, says his client is happy to sign this sort of nondisclosure agreement.

For an additional $ 10 million.

It’s also worth noting that Kelly wrote a book, “Settle for More,” in which she targeted Fox News Channel; and she has been very critical of that cable network since her departure in 2016.

It’s certainly not beneath her to attempt to damage NBC after she settles her employment with the organization.

The Today Show, for its part, is trying to move on.

On Monday, Al Roker, Hoda Kotb and Craig Melvin greeted viewers during Kelly’s former timeslot, with Kotb opening the hour by saying:

Today, as you know, we are starting a new chapter in the third hour of our show as it evolves.

We want you to know that the entire TODAY family will continue to bring you informative and important stories, just as we always have.

That’s great and all.

But why do we have a feeling that the book on Megyn Kelly and NBC has not yet totally closed?

Kristen Doute: Nev Schulman is a Jerk and I’ll Never Watch Catfish Again!

Despite Nev Schulman’s accuser filing a police report, they’re keeping him on Catfish, but the show is still looking for a new cohost.

Many thought that Vanderpump Rules star Kristen Doute would be a shoe-in for a host of reasons.

Nev laughed it off and basically called her a stalker, and Kristen is firing back.

Max Joseph is out at Catfish.

Nev Schulman, despite the sexual misconduct allegations against him, is still hosting the show.

And he’s looking for someone else. Naturally, a lot of people suggested Vanderpump Rules star Kristen Doute.

It’s not just that Kristen has been a fan of the show.

Kristen has some real detective skills, as The Ashley notes, having exposed her cheating ex-boyfriend James Kennedy and tracked down Tom Sandoval’s “Miami Girl.”

Kristen Doute tweets for Catfish

Using a common celebrity tactic, Kristen even drummed up support for the idea on Twitter, and a lot of fans loved the idea.

But when the subject came up in a recent interview, Nev Schulman shot down the possibility in a deeply insulting way.

“I’m even afraid to say her name, honestly,” Nev told Us Weekly.

He joked about her fondness for Catfish, saying: “I almost feel like I need to take a restraining order out.”

“Kristen really wants to be on the show,” Nev added. “I think she’s almost … she’s trying too hard!”

Kristen Doute appeared on co-star Stassi Schroeder’s Straight Up With Stassi to respond.

“I do not like ‘Catfish.’ I do not watch it,” Kristen shares. “I took it off my DVR.”

Kristen says: “I tweeted Nev. I’ve tweeted Max before. I’ve tweeted at ‘Catfish.’ I definitely started my own hashtag: #KristenForCatfish.”

“You know what, all of my wonderful followers on Twitter had my back and had that s–t trending real hard,” she notes.

“They know that I’m right” for the job, she says, “because I’ve taught them so many things that you, Nev, did not.”

“Everyone that I know — my team, my friends, the people who follow me — all contacted me like, ‘Kristen! He’s looking for a co-host!’” Krisen reveals.

Her interest in the show was famous, so it’s natural that she would come to mind.

“I thought it would be really fun to do one time,” Kristen explains. “I promote the s–t out of it and tell everyone to watch it.”

Stassi reassures her that she did nothing wrong by being outspoken about her hopes.

“That’s called manifesting,” Stassi notes.

Kristen laments how Nev responded: “He was a complete a–hole about it.”

If she just hadn’t gotten the role, that would be one thing. This rudeness is another matter.

“I unfollowed everything,” Kristen says of things related to Catfish. “And I don’t watch the show anymore”

She made this move “because that s–t [Nev said about me] was so beyond rude for someone who commends what you’ve done.”

“He badmouthed me because he thinks he’s too f–king cool for school,” she theorizes.

“He probably won’t even acknowledge this,” Kristen says. “But even if he wanted to say he was joking, it’s still f–king rude.”

She is absolutely right.

You can tell that Stassi is really heartbroken about this.

“It breaks my heart because you’ve talked about this show for so long,” Stassi says supportively.

“What do you want?” Kristen asks of Nv. “Do you want people to never speak about your show or be excited about it?”

She has a very valid point. If you shame fans of your show for liking it … how do you expect other fans to feel?

“It actually hurt my feelings,” Kristen admits. “And then it pissed me off.”

Megyn Kelly: Maybe I’ll Go Back to FOX Where I Was Appreciated!

Despite Megyn Kelly’s desperate attempts to stay relevant by defending Brett Kavanaugh of all people, her ratings are on death’s door.

NBC wants to fire her in order to rid themselves of a $ 23 million headache.

Apparently she’s been confiding in friends that she wants to go crawling back to FOX.

Megyn Kelly is said to be the most highly paid television personality at NBC.

Her catastrophic ratings during Today‘s third hour might not warrant it, but she’s said to be pulling down about $ 23 million per year.

But we keep hearing stories that NBC wants to fire Megyn, and apparently Megyn thinks that she knows who is responsible.

RadarOnline reports that Megyn Kelly blames Savannah Guthrie for the leaks.

And during the 8 hours of live coverage that NBC provided of the Kavanaugh hearings, Megyn and Savannah’s feud reached new intensity.

“As the day went on,” an insider says. “Savannah and Megyn got nastier and nastier.”

The source goes on to say that the two were “making little digs at each other.”

“When the live broadcast ended,” the insider dishes. “The two of them exploded.”

Megyn and Savannah were reportedly “accusing each other of talking over one another and interrupting.”

While Megyn barely treads water in the ratings, Savannah and Hoda Kotb have skyrocketed in popularity in the wake of Lauer’s firing.

Megyn is said to not really be fitting in over at NBC.

Earlier this month, more than two dozen folks from NBC watched Al Roker’s Broadway debut in Waitress.

Care to guess who was reportedly not invited?

Because Megyn was not part of that group outing.

“After the show,” an insider dished. “They all went to Butter restaurant on 45th Street with Al and his wife to celebrate.”

That sounds so wonderful … for the people there.

“One staff member was overheard saying, ‘This family does everything together,’” the source said.

“But,” the insider editorialized. “Obviously that ‘family’ doesn’t include Megyn!”

Ouch!

At this point, there has to be more to it than the fact that Megyn came over from FOX, right?

Maybe there’s some truth to those rumors that Megyn Kelly is a nightmare diva.

She is reportedly confiding in close friends that she is in talks to leave NBC and return to FOX.

“At FOX,” the insider says. “Megyn was a princess.”

Of course — she’s attractive, mean, and she makes claims like “Santa Claus is white” as if Santa is a real life person and not a fictional character inspired by a long-dead Turkish man.

“At NBC she feels isolated and alone,” the source continues.

“She’s not happy,” the insider says. “And something has to give.”

We love roasting Megyn Kelly, but here is a genuine question: has she tried … being nice?

The best way to make friends is to be nice to people. Not just the people whom you want to befriend, but others.

If you’re losing your mind and acting entitled with the people who handle lights and makeup, it’ll get back to Hoda and Savannah.

We know that Megyn is probably still unlearning bad habits, like lying and defending terrible people, that she picked up at FOX.

A lot of this world’s problems could be solved if people were kinder to one another.
