BoxingScene.com broke the details last week that 50 Cent and his previous partner, Floyd Mayweather Jr., were no longer working together. For months the rapper was discussing a promotional partnership with Mayweather. 50 Cent formed his own company TMT Promotions, obtained a promotional license in New York, and even signed up several fighters. When 50 and Mayweather cut their business ties, those fighters signed with Mayweather Promotions.
In a shocking move - 50 Cent then came together with Mayweather's rival, Pacquiao, as the two individuals plan to move forward with their own promotional partnership.
