|Floyd Mayweather & 50 Cent showing why they are part of 'The Money Team.'|
A few months back, everything was fine. The boxing world was actually buzzing for the two men when Curtis Jackson (50 Cent) announced that he had formed his own boxing promotional company named 'TMT Promotions.' He actually made three world class signings almost straight away in Yuriorkis Gamboa, Andre Dirrell and Billy Dibb. There were also rumours that 50 Cent becoming a promoter had increased the chances of a fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao. Now, you're probably thinking, what the hell could of gone wrong?
Well, whilst Mayweather was serving time in jail for a domestic abuse charge, 50 Cent repeatedly claimed that Mayweather would be part of his promotional company. He even argued with Oscar De La Hoya, the president of Golden Boy Promotions (who have co-promoted Floyd's last six fights) and told him that Golden Boy would no longer be part of any of Mayweather's fights. However, these claims are looking to be untrue at this moment in time, and this also looks to be the reason why there is friction between the two.
50 Cent recently appeared on the Ricky Smiley Morning Show and when asked about the rumours, he acknowledged that things were different between the two.
"Me and Floyd is always gonna be cool," said 50. "Everybody around him is waiting on the next time he feels generous. And I have a lot [of money], so I don't wait for nobody. It's just a space and time. I'll go and do what I have to do. I don't gotta sit around and wait for the next time he feels like giving somebody something."
