50 Cent Will Be Ringside For Mayweather-Guerrero Clash

By Chris Robinson

It was a packed scene on Tuesday afternoon, inside of the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada, as Floyd Mayweather and Robert Guerrero made their grand arrivals to the city ahead of their clash on Saturday night.

Mayweather (43-0, 26 KO’s) defends his WBC welterweight strap against Guerrero (31-1-1, 18 KO’s) in a Showtime pay per view attraction that will serve as one of the year’s biggest fights.

After several hours inside of MGM Grand, I made some more rounds in the city before returning home and crossed paths with music mogul and aspiring boxing promoter Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson.

50 Cent is in town putting the finishing touches on a new gym that he has high hopes for. The facility will have somewhat of a grand opening on Thursday, when former light heavyweight champion Jean Pascal will host an open media workout in the building ahead of his May 24th clash with Lucian Bute.

On Monday night, 50 Cent seemed to be in a talkative mood as he interacted with super middleweight hopeful Anthony Dirrell, Ohio-born junior lightweight prospect Mark Davis, Dirrell’s grandfather Leon Lawson Sr., as well as trainer Rodney Crisler.

As the conversation continued, it was only natural for me to ask the Queens, New York native whether or not he would be checking out Mayweather’s fight this weekend.

For years, 50 Cent and Mayweather had a relationship that seemed more like a brotherhood and could be seen hanging around each other under any and all situations. The union came to a halt this past September due to various reasons as each man has since gone their separate way.

In the wake of the fallout, 50 Cent has still found himself deep into the boxing game, as he is looking to turn his SMS Promotions into a major promotional entity.

50 Cent confirmed that he will be present for the big fight this weekend and claims that Mayweather, who he still ‘loves like a brother’ in his words, has the keys to victory.

“The only person who can beat Floyd Mayweather is Floyd Mayweather himself,” stated 50 Cent.

The last thing the leeches around Floyd want is for 50 to come back around. 50 was in the process of cutting off their supply of free money. I do believe the rift between 50 and Floyd is real, but…

50 from a place where nobody has money, people die over it Floyd was in on the deal and backed off, you dont mess with 50 money

[QUOTE=GRUSTLER;13316475]50 knows he messed up with Mayweather. He thought he was Floyd's real peoples but at the end he overestimated his position in the circle.[/QUOTE]Thats because there really is only one person in the circle, Floyd.
