50 Cent: I Don't See Mayweather Taking Pacquiao Fight

By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes

Rapper/promoter Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson has serious doubts that Floyd Mayweather Jr. will face Manny Pacquiao in a 2015 mega-fight.

Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum, who handles Pacquiao, is trying to secure Mayweather through CBS CEO Les Moonves.

Jackson was once a close friend and associate of Mayweather for several years. They had a serious falling out in 2012, but slowly the two of them have been mending their relationship.

"I really don't see that fight taking place. I don't see him taking that fight, I don't. I know Floyd and I know [that he feels] he doesn't have to. He knows that no matter how they feel they will watch the next one and he'll leave when he's ready to leave boxing on top," Jackson told BoxingScene.com.

"A lot of the choices he makes is collective, it's not just him - it's his whole team. But when I get mad I blame it on him, I say it was him."

Floyd is his own boss, but decisions are collective hahaha!

In other words My friend is scared of the Asian typhoon. He'll rather keep his 0 and retire.

Add De La Hoya to the list of promoters with professional and personal ties to Mayweather (not counting Arum) who think Floyd doesn't want the fight.
