Care to explain this sir? Something Im missing here?
Through their close association, Floyd was able to gain the attention from those who were fans of 50 cent. I am not implying that Floyd only became more mainstream because of 50 cent but their friendship did have a lot to do with Floyds rise in popularity.

Was it a Floyd vs Gamboa discussion by any chance? Cause I also came across some casuals talking about this.

Unfortunetly it has happened, yes

Thankfully most discussions relate to his speed, it's something that tends to shock people.

Boom! I knew it haha. People talk smack about 50 saying he doesn't know sh*t about boxing cause he's talking about Gamboa vs Floyd who is 2-3 weight divisions higher but they're not thinking outside the bubble. They're not seeing what that type of talk is doing for Gamboa's popularity.

And I myself have come across somewhat casuals who are a little more educated about boxing who also talk about his speed.

50 cent is great for boxing, especially great for young talented fighters that need more recognition. he is a very good business man as well so I'm sure he will make good decisions. he is already loaded so he wont be so worried about the money. What he said about gamboa - broner being the next possible superfight, i think that is very true. i can see it happening

gamboa always amazes me!

Head movement, defense, hand eye coordination, etc.
