Sometimes TMZ Sports gets it right (see: Ray Rice). And sometimes not so much. Yesterday the site reported that boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr., who just won his welterweight and junior middleweight world titles bout on Saturday night against Marcos Maidana, didn't tip his server on a $25,000 comped tab at Rehab on Sunday. Mayweather earned a reported $32 million for the 12-round unanimous decision win.

A server at Rehab named Nik Nguyen even provided TMZ with her bikini shots, you know, to lend credence to the story. She says she's working two jobs and "some of the people in Floyd's entourage — including Jamie Foxx — were throwing money at random girls who were twerking on stage." But she says they left no tip.

Eater Vegas reached out to a rep with the Hard Rock Hotel, who answered bluntly, "There is no merit to this story."

TMZ included a laundry list of Mayweather's tab for his 150-person entourage, but no copy of the actual receipt.
