Boxing champion Floyd Mayweather, Jr. has stepped forward to clear the air on an alleged recording which features him admitting having a sexual relationship with reality TV star Tameka “Tiny” Cottle. #thechampishere

Despite the widespread coverage, Mayweather cleared up the matter this weekend.

Floyd Mayweather says he never had sex with T.I.‘s wife Tiny … and claims the audio in the footage we posted this morning wasn’t clear. Mayweather tells TMZ Sports …he ACTUALLY said, “he thinks I was f***ing his bitch.” In the video, Floyd does try to mutter something before the sex line — but it’s hard to make out. Mayweather adds, “I’ve never been with Tiny sexually. I respect her situation and I think she’s a good person. I would never disrespect a marriage.” (TMZ)

While he did not get deep into details, Tiny’s husband T.I. recently admitted his problems with Floyd dated back past May.

“There was history. There was definitely history,” Tip said in an interview. “I don’t care what you do to whoever else. I don’t care who you speak to, how you speak to them. You dealing with me you gonna deal with me like a man. I feel like my steps are guided, man. I’m a man of God. When I step I ain’t got nobody to fear, but God himself. I don’t got no fire I can’t walk through. I done been through it all.” (Hot 97)

Tip initially relied on his Instagram page to dismiss reports of enduring physical harm to his face when Mayweather fight story first broke out.

“They said I’ve got two black eyes. Where they at, though? These ones I’m looking at? Is they black for real? D*mn, been like that all my life. F*cked my hand up. That’s about it. [laughs],” Tip said in a video followed by the caption “Two black what?????? C’mon now. Never in da history of Nigga-dom. But nice try tho. Lol” (T.I.’s Instagram)

Following the controversy, Mayweather admitted a recent photo of himself alongside Tiny most likely sparked the early May 25 confrontation.

“I’m eating at Fatburger and next thing you know, he walk in talking about we need to talk again. And then I told him, “You need to get the f-ck outta my face. That’s what you better do.” And then he said, “I ain’t talking to all these people so you ain’t gotta talk loud.” I said, “Listen, don’t come to my face with no disrespectful sh-t. Like I told you before, you must’ve forgot what I did for a living.” He said, “You do in the ring, I do it in the streets.” I said, “My man, I do it everywhere. You can find out if you want to.” Just like that. … Then a couple of words exchange and people got to pushing and a riot kinda broke out. And then a bunch of chaos and that was basically it. Because, like I said before, he probably does some foolish things, but he ain’t no damn fool to swing on me.” (Necole Bitchie)
