Report: Boxing's Floyd Mayweather orchestrated 'savage attack' on two employees suspected of theft

Here's a tip: When one of the richest men in Las Vegas — who also happens to be the baddest boxer on the planet — asks you to meet him in the middle of the desert … DON'T GO!

Sounds like the two men hired to work for Floyd Mayweather Jr. were looking for a little extra sumthin-sumthin in addition to whatever they were contracted to be paid.

That's according to a wild report from TMZ, which claims the undefeated boxing champion rounded up the hired help and shipped them off to a discreet location, where "Money" had a couple of his goons give them the rubber-hose treatment, straight up Nicky Santoro style.

We're told the men claim they were contacted several weeks ago and instructed to meet Floyd at an off-site location.

When the men arrived, they claim Floyd was waiting for them -- along with a number of his "people" -- who proceeded to beat the living crap out of them with various weapons, including clubs.

One source put it this way, "It was some 'Breaking Bad' s**t."

The victims -- accused of jewelry theft -- suffered broken arms and legs and "could have easily died."

Mayweather, who did hard time back in 2012 for domestic assault, is scheduled to put his undefeated streak on the line when he battles Marcos Maidana on Showtime pay-per-view (PPV) on May 3, 2014, inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada (details).

Unless the lawyers retained for the unnamed victims get to him first.

Naturally, Mayweather is presumed innocent and at this time, no charges have been filed. All we have is a tall tale from a couple of busted-up contractors with a sordid story of missing jewels (and missing teeth).

Stay tuned.

B.J. Penn will forever be known as one of the most dominant lightweight champions MMA and the UFC have ever seen. That doesn’t mean the 35-year-old welterweight and lightweight champion should fight forever, though. Win or lose, UFC president Dana White thinks he needs to step in before allowing Penn to continue his career. “This is B.J.’s last fight possibly,” White said on Tuesday on Fox Sports 1. “If he wins, we’ll see what he does from there, but if he loses, I will actually push him for him more
