50 Cent, Mayweather Relationship No Longer The Same

By Osman Rodriguez

A few months ago, the boxing world was buzzing when rapper Curtis Jackson, also known as 50 Cent, formed his own promotional company, TMT Promotions, and quickly signed Yuriorkis Gamboa, Andre Dirrell, Celestino Caballero and Billy Dibb.

Back in July, 50 Cent and Oscar De La Hoya, the president of Golden Boy Promotions, exchanged words on Twitter. During the exchange, 50 Cent vowed that Golden Boy would no longer promote Floyd Mayweather Jr. Golden Boy has co-promoted Mayweather's last six fights.

In several interviews, 50 Cent would indicate that Mayweather was a part of his promotional company.

Most of this took place while Mayweather was doing time at the Las Vegas Detention Center for a domestic abuse charge. When Mayweather was released last month, he left in a car with 50 Cent.

Over the last few weeks, rumors began to swirl that there was friction between the two of them.

During a recent appearance on the Rickey Smiley Morning Show, 50 Cent discussed those swirling rumors. Without acknowledging that there were issues, he appeared to confirm that the two of them were not as close as they used to be.

“Me and Floyd is always gonna be cool. 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,” 50 Cent said.
