50 Cent Takes Aim at Former Friend Mayweather Jr.

Everyone was waiting to see which superstar would cast the first stone. In a few recent interviews, Floyd Mayweather Jr. took the high road and said he was not going to take any shots at his former friend and business partner, rapper 50 Cent.

At one time they were the closest of friends, but that relationship fell apart when 50 Cent started his own promotional company, TMT Promotions, which he believed Mayweather was going to be involved in.

Mayweather backed away from TMT and continued to work with his existing partners, Golden Boy Promotions and adviser Al Haymon.

50 Cent dropped the TMT banner and changed the name of the company to SMS Promotions. He also took his fighters, Yuriorkis Gamboa, Billy Dib and Andre Dirrell. The most revealing move was 50 Cent's newfound alliance with Mayweather's rivals, Manny Pacquiao and Top Rank.

"TMT is over. The money team is no longer a team. So it's SMS Promotions....that's it, that's all. I'm no longer a part or down with TMT Promotions. If anyone wants a Money Team jacket, I'm selling mine for a dollar. The nap back hat comes with it. That's a fair price. I moved the fighters to SMS Promotions cause the other half of 'the money team' didn't put up their money," 50 Cent wrote on his social network accounts.

Great, more out-of-ring drama. That's just what boxing needs.

Who gives a damn!

All you see is two **** arguing over money that they really would not have earned in the first place. One is a fake ass scary boxer with fair skills, but scared to fight real fighters in their prime and the other one, a fake ass rapper who can't spell beyond 50 three letter words. It takes some t...

[QUOTE=KRAFTSMAN]Put it this way, Haymon will always do well on his own even without Floyd. Floyd on his own as a promoter is useless. When Floyd retires, Haymon will have no use for him. Floyd with 50, plus TMT could have had a better chance of succeeding as opposed to being left on their ...

[QUOTE=jrrod02]So much for TMT taking over boxing. Boxing promotion is a tough business. Just look at Shane Mosley promotions, Square Ring promotions, Vargas promotions, Hatton Promotions, and countless others. Soon 50 cent promotional company will fall by the wayside too. Floyd knowing box...
