Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather is undisputed in his greatness. The champion is undefeated in over 50 fights since his debut in 1996. After taking some time out of the ring, he will be returning next month in an interesting match-up against Youtube Star Logan Paul. While Mayweather is expected to win, many are still scratching their heads as to why the fight is happening in the first place.
The boxer was once close with rapper 50 Cent before the two became enemies. The pair used to be friends but fell out when Mayweather refused to give the musician half of his company, according to the former boxer.
It was speculated in 2012 that 50 had signed on to promote Mayweather after he got a license to promote boxing fights through his company TMT Promotions. The acronym stood for The Money Team, a nickname used by the entourage of the world champion boxer.
50 Cent decided to weigh in on Mayweather’s upcoming fight on V-103’s “The Morning Culture”. The two have a long and storied history together, and 50 Cent thinks he’d like to take on his former friend in the ring, despite there being an obvious size difference in the twos physiques.
“Whats real popular is this celebrity boxing” said popular radio and television personality Big Tigger. “Apparently Lamar Odom is suppose to fight somebody. is there anybody that could get 50 in the ring? basically anybody you’d seriously wanna punch in the face?”
“i’d fight Floyd if I could get down there.” Joked 50. “Or he’d just have to let me not get down to 150. I tried I looked like a homeless person. I could make it down to probably, like 180.” The rapper and DJ laughed it off, obviously poking fun at Mayweather being smaller than 50
Since the beginning of their fued, 50 has issued several challanges to Mayweather, including asking him to “read one full page of a Harry Potter book” in return for a $750,000 donation to charity.
He later teased him saying they could a video of him reading on Jimmy Kimmel, but that they’d simplify the book for him,
“We don’t wanna put pressure on you,” he told the boxer. “We know you can’t pronounce those words in a Harry Potter book so we’re gonna let you read Cat In The Hat.”
