The two were scheduled to sort out their beef in the ring.

The rapper fighting with the sports star isn't actually that rare an occurrence.
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

Mike Tyson's UK ban could result in the scrapping of his 2014 tour.
Mike Tyson's UK ban leaves his one-man show tour in 2014 in serious doubt. The former champion boxer is currently booked in for eight nights of his Undisputed Truth show (directed by Spike Lee) in London, Glasgow and Manchester but Tyson discovered this week that he is banned from entering the country.
Mike Tyson's UK Ban Leaves His Tour In Doubt
The former boxer, 47, was due in the capital this week as a part of a promotional tour for his new autobiography, which included a photo-call with journalists and a book signing at Waterstones, but recent changes to UK immigration laws meant he was unable to enter the UK and was re-routed to Paris instead.

"Tyson returns ear" is one of the best ads in years.
"Tyson returns ear" may well go down as the funniest commercial of 2013. The new ad for Foot Locker - co-starring Kyrie Irving - was on the brink of going viral on Wednesday (November 20, 2013).
The whole thing is based around "things that make you feel all's right with the world" which Cavaliers star Irving dreams about whilst courtside with his buddies in the opening moments.
Then we cut to Tyson approaching Holyfield's monumental mansion, ringing the doorbell and telling the heavyweight "I'm sorry, I got your ear," before giving his old foe a big hug.
Mike Tyson has reached out for help.
The former heavyweight champion of the world told a packed press room last week that he was "on the verge of dying" though had been sober for six days.
He visited the same theme on Thursday's interview, telling Lauer, "When I start drinking and I relapse, I think of dying.When I'm in a real dark mood, I think of dying. And I don't want to be around no more. I won't survive unless I get help."

Lindsay Lohan arrived at the Scary Movie 5 premiere 30 minutes after the red-carpet was supposed to close.
Lindsay Lohan arrived fashionably late to the premiere of Scary Movie 5 in Hollywood last night. We say fashionably late, what we actually mean is she arrived 30 minutes AFTER the red carpet was due to close and moments before the movie was about to start. Lohan - who is rehab bound - posed for a couple of solo photos before being joined by co-star Charlie Sheen. The actress wore a sleek knee-length dress, which worked well with tousled auburn hair. It's safe to say she was very much the star of the show and photographers jostled for position to get the perfect snap.
Lohan and Sheen exchanged greetings and took pictures together before Sheen left her to her press duties. However, there was little for the waiting journalists as Lohan was rushed into the screening with her publicist in tow, having no time to stop and greet her fans who had congregated outside the theatre holding up 'Team Lohan' signs. Who in their right mind would... forget it. Though Lohan was the main event, the likes of Ashley Tisdale, Simon Rex, Mike Tyson, Heather Locklear, Kate Walsh and Jerry O'Connell attended the premiere too.
The actress flew into Los Angeles from New York very early on Thursday morning (April 11, 2013) and is scheduled to attend the Coachella music festival in Indio, California, this weekend. However, according to TMZ.com, the actress is telling friends she "doesn't care about all the snipers who are scoffing" at her rehabilitation and insists she will stay clean at the festival, which she, err, enjoyed last year. A judge in her criminal case has warned her to stay away from people who do drugs or alcohol, which could be problematic at Coachella, headlined this year by The Stone Roses, Blur, Phoenix and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Mike Tyson will appear in the new Scary Movie film, playing himself during a scene parodying 50 Shades of Grey.
Tyson, 50 Shades of Gray? Boxing great, and now comedy movie regular Mike Tyson should be able to give the upcoming Scary Movie 5 the lift it may need (given how bad the last two were at least) after it emerged that he is to appear in the next instalment of the comedy franchise during a spoof of the 50 Shades of Grey novel by EL James.
The term 'You Snooze You Lose' applies to the producers of the movie adaptation of the novel here, because despite close to a year of speculation and rumours, the 50 Shades movie is still no closer to being made and now the hugely popular erotica tale has finally made it to the big screen, only to be spoofed by Tyson, Ashley Tisdale and Jerry O’Connell.

Stu, Phil, Alan and Doug return to Las Vegas in the hilarious third instalment of 'The Hangover' movie series. Nobody's getting married this time, but if you think the absence of a bachelor party will calm this lot down, you are so wrong. Following the events of 'The Hangover' which saw them get attacked by gangsters, mauled by a tiger, tasered by cops and inadvertently married, and of course the events of 'The Hangover Part II' which took them to Thailand where they got tattooed, shot by Russian mobsters and had sex with transgender hookers, the conclusion to this trilogy doesn't look to fare much better as these wild boys set out for one last mayhem-fuelled weekend in Sin City.

One of the most controversial stars of the past three decades in the ring, boxer Mike Tyson is taking his Broadway show Mike Tyson: Undisputed Champion on the road in the new year for a 10-week tour.
Tyson raised eyebrows when initially announcing the show, and has since suffered somewhat of a critical mauling over it. The plot centers on the time when Tyson was convicted of rape and sentenced to prison for three years in 1992, a crime he still contests that he did not commit. The show will commence its tour on February 12, 2013 in Indianapolis and will hit 36 cities across the USA, reports The New York Times. Tyson needs all the good press he can get for the jaunt, and revealed the tour on The Jimmy Kimmel Show, adding in an anecdote about a visit from Florence Henderson whilst he was in prison.
Tyson was apparently in solitary confinement at the time and said to Kimmel “What was I going to say when Mrs. Brady came to visit?” before staggering around the stage imitating what it was like to walk in shackles. Making his boxing debut in the 1980's, Tyson became the youngest World Heavyweight Champion in history in 1986 when aged just 20 he knocked out Trevor Berbick for the WBC belt. However, he never re-captured his 80's magic and spent much of the next two decades fading in form, although he was never far away from controversy out of the ring.
The Mike Tyson one man show will hit Indianapolis - the city where he was jailed after The Old National Centre announced today that he will perform on Feb. 12 and 13 in "Mike Tyson; Undisputed Truth."
Directed by Spike Lee and written by the boxer's third wife, Kiki Tyson, the confessional ran for 12 shows on Broadway and the Indianapolis stop is part of a national tour. You might think Tyson has no place on the stage, but most critics didn't dismiss it altogether, however they weren't exactly enamoured with it. The Telegraph say, "Mike Tyson's one-man show in New York was amusingly honest, if at times self-indulgent." And the shows funny side is, by most accounts, the best part of the show. There are many funny moments in his anecdotes too. I doubt anyone in the audience will forget the night they saw the former heavyweight champion of the world hugging himself in a pretend clinch before prancing across the stage and leading the audience in a falsetto singalong of 'Loving You'", the Telegraph continues.
Tyson served three years in an Indiana prison for the 1991 rape of a Miss Black America pageant contestant. A Marion County jury convicted Tyson of one count of rape and two counts of criminal deviate conduct. Tyson served his time at the Indiana Youth Center, a high-medium security facility west of Indianapolis.
Former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson is "disappointed" after he was denied entry to New Zealand, reports TVNZ. The erstwhile fighter was due to speak at a special event in Auckland on November 15 2012.
"He's clean, he sober, he's a vegan, he's coming with his wife, his two children under four and his mother-in-law, he can't possibly do anything wrong in 20 hours, even the Prime Minister said he's only here for 20 hours," said Max Markson, the promoter for Mike Tyson's visits to Australia and New Zealand. "And in addition to that he is very much giving a social and economic benefit to the New Zealand economy." All was looking well for Tyson, as he'd previously been granted entry to the country despite his rape conviction, but that all changed this morning (October 3rd) when Associate Immigration Minister, Kate Wilkinson, said a children's charity had withdrawn its support for his visit. "Yesterday evening the Life Education Trust contacted my office and asked for that letter to be withdrawn, making it clear that the Trust no longer wants to have any involvement with Mr Tyson's visit," Wilkinson explained in a statement.
New Zealand immigration law states that a visa will not be granted to a person who has been convicted and sentenced to imprisonment for five years or more; Tyson served six years in jail for the rape of an 18-year-old beauty queen in 1991. "He is quite down about it," Markson said.
Having finally put the embarrassment of "that" weekend in Las Vegas behind him, Stu (Helms) is ready to settle down with fiance Lauren (Chung), who's planning their romantic wedding in Thailand. But after a night drinking on the beach, Stu wakes up in a Bangkok flat with fast-thinking friend Phil (Cooper), nutcase Alan (Galifianakis), an eerily smart monkey and Mr Chow (Jeong), the criminal who caused such chaos in Vegas. The problem is that Lauren's 16-year-old brother Teddy (Mason Lee) is missing. But what exactly happened last night?

Best friends Phil, Alan, Stu and Doug reunite for yet another wedding, this time, it's Stu's turn to tie the knot and he and his fiancé decide the perfect location for their marriage will be in Thailand. After experiencing Doug's pre-wedding rituals in Las Vegas, Stu has opted for a far more civilized stag do, he's arranged for he and his boys to have brunch. The guys are joined by Stu's wife-to-be's (teenage) brother, after all they're only going for brunch, four grown men should be able to look after him.

The overall effect is the cinematic equivalent of the vagaries of memory, less a conventional biography and more a scrapbook of sorts unfolding on the screen. The boxer often chokes back tears, acknowledging his mentors, or spews vitriol as he confronts unresolved resentments and bitterness towards those he feels wronged him. Tyson's most engrossing moments occur when Toback juxtaposes the boxer's own blow-by-blow of a fight in sync with the fight's actual footage -- it's a brilliant example of the subjective and the objective smashed together.
Continue reading: Tyson Review
The hardest thing about an outsider trying to infiltrate a subculture and explain it to the masses is that the truth is often lost in the translation. Toback throws together a huge canvas of characters and actors in attempt to create a clear picture of why white kids are motivated to impersonate black rappers' lifestyles and why rich whit guys treat black rappers like Arnold and Willis from Diff'rent Strokes.
Continue reading: Black And White (1999) Review
No other filmmaker besides James Toback has such a perverted, cynical view of humankind. Even if his films are sometimes not entirely successful, they represent a fascinatingly skewed, sadistic vision of pleasure, money and power, usually at the expense of a moral center.
His best films eventually overcome this factor, finding a spot of human essence among the corruption, specifically "Fingers" and "Two Girls and a Guy." But even his completely bankrupt films like "Black and White," "Harvard Man" and the new "When Will I Be Loved" have a dark allure to them. At least we know that the artist is staying true to himself rather than making another slick widget for the studios to sell.
The real reason "When Will I Be Loved" works so well is the brilliant casting of Neve Campbell, who seems to have traveled on an opposite arc from Reese Witherspoon. Witherspoon started in small, crafty independent movies which allowed her to stretch and test her own limits, then graduated to big, expensive, brain-dead films in which she does very little.
