50 Cent Wants To Use WWE Theatrics To Pump Events

By Mike Coppinger

With his first fight as a promoter a success, his rapping performance while being lowered into the ring one of the highlights of the show, 50 Cent has some plans to bring more theatrics into boxing. The music mogul would love to model Vince McMahon and the success the wrestling giant has brought to his WWE brand.

"(We should) use some of the theatrics that you see in WWE and bringing them into a sport that doesn't have a question mark -- we know boxing is real. We don't say 'is that real?' like wrestling," said 50 Cent. "If you add those different elements to it you can offer something that would be entertaining enough to watch the entire show."

50 Cent's SMS Promotions will have their fighter Andre Dirrell fight on Jan. 19 and will mark his second fight as a promoter.

[QUOTE=turnedup]Hah...wow ppl here really lack vision..he's talking about good lighting shows, lasers and crap, fireworks/pyrotechnics, ring models (not corona girls), etc. This isn't a bad idea but it cuts a ton from the profit margin which makes other promoters not happy.[/QUOTE] Agreed. As...

I always said boxing could use more Awesome Referee's like Professional Wrestling uses. They are always on top of it! LOL

[QUOTE=WESS]Nobody wants WWE brought into boxing. Live music performances/concerts in-between fights and entrances are great. I figured 50 would focus on live music before the fights. Guess I was wrong.[/QUOTE] For me there not. F*ck the live bands and particularly rappers for entrances. It ...

Entertainment and music etc is great when it's done right, but when they try to be cool and don't base their entertainment choices on the make up of the crowd then it's just laughably bad. At Haye-Chisora, they had this dude "Angel" on, some young, black singer engaging in vocal gymnastics sin...
