50 Cent Interested in Signing Prospect Jose Lopez

By “Mr. Boxing” Giancarlo Oquendo

Rapper and boxing promoter 50 Cent showed up at a boxing event that was held in Caguas, Puerto Rico by Miguel Cotto Promotions. Lightweight Abner Cotto, the cousin of former world champion Miguel Cotto, was featured in the main event. 50 Cent was watching undefeated Puerto Rican super bantamweight prospect Jose "Wonder Boy" Lopez - who has an undefeated record of 6 wins and 5 by way of knockout.

Apparently 50 Cent is interested in signing the Puerto Rican boxer to his new promotional company, SMS Promotions. A member of Lopez's team said there negotiations on signing him. On the show, Lopez swept Erick Gotay (3-1-1 KO's) to win a unanimous decision. The official scorecards of judges were 40-34 (x3).

No doubt 50 has good intentions. He is a fan of the sport and he's obviously not happy with the way it's going. There's also no doubt he hasn't recoup his investments. Whether he succeeds or not remains to be…
