Lil Wayne Kobe Is Better Than Michael Jordan

Breaking News

Lil Wayne says there is a basketball player better than Michael Jordan … but it ain’t LeBron James.

“These days they think the tough question is Jordan or LeBron. No. Jordan or Kobe is the tough question … but it’s Kobe.”

The rapper made the shocking revelation in a video released Monday … saying even though it physically pained him to make the declaration — he says the Mamba was just that good.

“God, forgive me. Jordan, forgive me. But, it’s Kobe.”

Soo … does Wayne have a legit argument??

Kobe does have one more All-Star appearance than Jordan … but M.J. has more rings, more MVPs, more career points, more career rebounds AND less career turnovers.

Yeah … sorry, Mamba — doesn’t seem Lil Wayne stands a chance of being right here.

Bernard Hopkins I Want To Train Michael B. Jordan … To Whoop Roy Jones Jr.’s Ass

EXCLUSIVE

Bernard Hopkins doesn’t seem to care that Michael B. Jordan and Roy Jones Jr. squashed their beef … ‘cause the legendary boxer says he wants to train the actor to whoop Roy’s ass!!

ICYMI … Michael B. previously told us his boxing skills were so good after filming “Creed II,” he wanted a scrap with Roy — and then the 49-year-old boxer told him to set it up!!

But, when we got Roy out at LAX last week … he said the beef has been squashed — and it doesn’t look like a fight will go down.

Enter B-Hop … who says not only should the fight still happen — he wants to train MBJ to beat that ass!!!

“I’d love to be his trainer. I’d love to be Michael B.’s trainer. … Michael cannot beat Roy Jones unless he has B-Hop’s assistance!”

Of course, Bernard and Roy have history … the two fought in 1993 and in 2010 — and Bernard says that most recent bout (the one Hopkins actually won) is the key for MBJ.

“You know what the first lesson I would show him? I wouldn’t show him the first fight, I would show him the second one when I won!!”

Soooo, fight back on?? Stay tuned …

Roy Jones Jr. Spoke with Michael B. Jordan … About Boxing Match

EXCLUSIVE

Bad news everyone … Roy Jones Jr. and Michael B. Jordan have finally talked — and it looks like they WON’T be getting in the ring for a real-life boxing match. 

Remember, Michael B. previously told us he’s so confident in his boxing skills, he could actually hang with the 49-year-old in a fight. Roy had told him to set it up!!! 

Well, now we’ve learned the two sides have connected — and smartly for Michael B., sounds like the fight is off. 

“We just talked about it. We laughed about it. It’s a fun thing,” Roy told us. 

The good news — Roy actually likes the guy and says he’d be down to help train Michael up for the next ‘Creed’ movie.

In fact, Roy acknowledged that Michael’s had “extensive” boxing training and — “he’d probably do okay for a few rounds with me!”

This all stems from comments Michael B. made to TMZ Sports a few weeks ago when he said he thinks he’d be able to hold is own with the current, 49-year-old version of Roy. He admitted Roy in his prime might kill him in the ring. 

Roy had previously invited Michael B. to call him up so they could fight — but after talking things out, sounds like the two ain’t about to get it on any time soon.

Bottom line — Jones says people can train for a fight all they want, but there’s nothing that can prepare you for the first time you get cracked in the face. 

True statement.

Michael B. Jordan His Body KO’s Apollo Creed … Trainer Says

EXCLUSIVE

Forget Drago’s kid … Michael B. Jordan had a totally different opponent in “Creed II,” because his trainer says the real fight was a body battle between MBJ and the original Creed, Carl Weathers.

MBJ is otherworldly jacked for the new flick, and when we talked to his trainer, Corey Calliet, he says even though Mike has been pumped up for a while now, he took it to a new level for the sequel.

“He’s never looked like that ever in his life. He’s never even imagined he could look like that.”

We then had to ask the big question … in a father (Apollo) versus son (Adonis) battle of the bodies, who wins?

Here’s where we remind you prisoners of the moment to remember that Carl Weathers was ABSOLUTELY JACKED, but Corey says it doesn’t even matter, Mike got him, and that was the plan.

“I promise you. I put Carl Weathers to sleep.”

We’d never talk to Action Jackson like that … so you guys make up your own minds.

D.L. Hughley Warns Michael B. Jordan … Roy Jones Would ‘Beat the Sh*t’ Outta You!

Breaking News

D.L. Hughley is a HUGE boxing fan — so, when he saw the clip where Michael B. Jordan said he could hold his own in the ring with Roy Jones Jr., D.L. had some thoughts … 

“Roy Jones Jr. ain’t what he was, but he’d still beat the sh*t outta Michael B. Jordan.”

There’s more … 

“Even though Roy Jones Jr. won’t remember his name, he’ll beat the hell out of Michael B. Jordan.”

Michael B.’s been training like crazy for years ever since he took the role of Adonis Creed — and clearly believes he’s built up the skills to compete with real world class boxers. 

In fact, multiple pro boxers — including his “Creed II” co-star Florian Munteanu — have vouched for Michael’s hands … which might be why MBJ was so confident when we spoke with him last week. 

As for Roy, he’s not interested in talking, he wants to FIGHT — challenging Michael B to call his camp and set up a real bout … where the actor can test his skills once and for all. 

Guessing it probably won’t happen (why would Michael B. risk an insane career to prove a point?) but he wouldn’t be the first actor to give pro boxing a shot — just ask Mickey Rourke
