Rapper/boxing promoter 50 Cent believes that he can make the long awaited mega-fight showdown between Manny Pacquiao (54-4-2, 38KOs) and Floyd Mayweather Jr. (43-0, 26KOs).
50 Cent, along with Mayweather, recently created their own promotional company - TMT Promotions. The company has already signed up Yuriorkis Gamboa, Billy Dibb, Celestino Caballero, Andre Dirrell and they are working with Zab Judah.
There are widespread conversations that Mayweather will no longer take part in a working relationship with Golden Boy Promotions, who co-promoted the boxer's last six fights.
With 50 Cent obtaining a promotional license in New York and Las Vegas, insiders believe Mayweather will now promote all of his future events under the TMT label.
50 cent, who doesn't have any problems with Pacquiao's promoter, Top Rank, feels confident he can get a deal done.
"I believe I can [make it happen]. I believe that I'm a big reason why the possibility is coming closer. We are in communications, so hopefully we can get the show going," 50 told Power 106 Radio
Later in the interview, 50 bragged about some of his recent pickups.
"I walk around with the top fighters in the world. I want somebody to say something stupid. I've got Andre Dirrell with me tonight, and Gamboa. I have a bunch of other fighters too....Billy Dibb out of Australia, he's got the IBF title right now and he's signed to the company. We're working with Zab Judah," 50 said.
