50 Cent: No Reason For Mayweather-Pacquiao II

By Edward Chaykovsky

Rapper/CEO of SMS Promotions, Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, sees no reason for a rematch between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao.

Jackson and Mayweather were once business associates, but had a falling out where they became enemies. During that period of time, Jackson started a business relationship with Pacquiao and his promoter Top Rank.

Several months ago, Jackson and Mayweather buried the hatchet and the two of them are once again close friends.

Presently, Jackson is co-promoted cards with Lou DiBella of DiBella Entertainment. Earlier this month he came together with Golden Boy Promotions to stage the Saul Alvarez vs. James Kirkland clash.

Even with Pacquiao's right shoulder injury, it's not enough to do a rematch says Jackson. He was among the many that flooded Las Vegas during the week of May 2nd to watch Mayweather win a twelve round unanimous decision.

“I don’t think that there’s a rematch in order,” Jackson told MTV News. “I think that we’ve seen fighters hurt themselves in the fight to the point that they gotta fight with one arm. And they don’t necessarily create the rematch because he threw his arm out. When he says that he was hurt, I didn’t see anything that would make you think that he was hurt prior to the actual fight or during the fight… He wasn’t throwing one hand more often than the other.”

“It’s obvious, it’s huge business. $200 million dollars… in 36 minutes. I don’t think with the response that he got from the actual fight, wasn’t a real positive response following it. People weren’t jumping up and down like, You gotta see it again.”

Manny was exposed. He was carefully matched against show brawlers which made him look fast but when put against Marquez he lost 3 out of 4 times and then against Mayweather it was a complete mismatch. Pacquaio is probably the…

[QUOTE=MindBat;15712402]I wouldn't mind watching paint fighting with the wall at a catchweight either, but that don't mean it'll be more exciting. Paint ain't got a shoulder roll and no defense, and it's slow as fVck. They didn't even lie to…
