Floyd Mayweather Has A Mathematical Response For People Saying He Can't Read


(AllHipHop News) Boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather was clowned by both 50 Cent and Charlamagne Tha God in recent days. The rapper and the radio personality made Mayweather the butt of “he can’t read” jokes that circulated online.

50’s method was via Instagram where he first challenged Mayweather to read a Harry Potter book and then Dr. Seuss’ The Cat in the Hat. Charlamagne took time during The Breakfast Club radio show to play audio of the Money Team boss struggling to read a drop for the station.

Mayweather obviously got wind of the cracks and responded on Twitter. The champ’s message seemed to be that math is a more favored subject for him. He posted a picture of two checks written out to his company in the amount of $31,406,000 and $40,870,000. Floyd simply wrote “Read this $72,276,000.00. God Bless.”

    Floyd butt hurt but, GOOD COMEBACK!!

    • Dreday410

      Not against 50 tho…It would only work if 50 was broke but dude is not

  • BIG MIKE SOMETHING SERIOUS

    Pride, and P*ssy, A Nukka biggest downfall! Get some help and this problem will go away.

  • Breeze

    How you tellin a nigga wit money (50) that you got money? Lol I can understand CTG but 50 dont care about that shit. Thats gonna just make him laugh and attack more

  • keepitthoro

    The whole world knew this would be his response.

    If he wanted to dead this whole thing, he should’ve came out stating some facts like, everday x amount of kids drop out of school; illiteracy is no joke. Then donated $750k to a charity that supports that and encourage 50 to do the same. That’s how u kill somethin like this.

    • Chris

      Great point.

      • keepitthoro

        Yea, it’s too bad that Floyd ain’t the type of dude that would do anything like that.

    • frades

      using charity to make fun of another person ? come on man this is wrong. look up the word charity.

    • Killuminati

      Floyd would rather buy a car or splurge on some jewelry than go that route

  • RichFromBX

    that’s great and all but with the way that dude spends he’ll be broke and illiterate 5 years after his last fight. He’ll be the Hammer of boxing.

    • Killuminati

      Truuuuu

  • rs_yes

    But…but… Floyd is worth 280 mil and 50 is worth 270 mil. Sooooooo, what was the point of that comparison? He dodging the fact that he can’t read. If he was smart and had a good camp, he could have came back with a post showing that he enrolled / hire a tutor for coaching on reading. That would have been a GOOD comeback instead of saying “But I’m rich though.”
    You know how many ex-basketball and nfl players regret not having a solid foundation of education because they spent all of their money friviously and now struggling. SMH

    • Guest

      50 is not worth 270 millions its false

      • Killuminati

        No he’s worth more

      • Fuck boy killer

        Not to count another person’s money but he did make a ton of money off of that “Vitamin Water”…

  • yesanditcounts

    Judging by that response…..he can’t read, right?

  • Reblogged this on boog3rsugarblog.

  • It definitely must be me, because it seems like everyone leaving comments is wildin’. Is it all bad that he probably cant read that well? Of course it is. But y’all acting like the man can’t articulate his points in conversation, or even carry one for that matter. You telling me you wouldn’t consider trading in the ability to read (well) for being the number one most successful and highest paid person in your industry? I love reading and read books all the time, but lets be real..

    • Immortal

      Naw bruh. If I can’t read, then how can I do a proper audit of my own books to make sure I’m not being ripped off? With all the money in the world, how am I going to read something simple for the kids if no one is around to do it for me? What if it were his own kids that challenged him to read this instead of 50 (not out of spite, just to read them a story)? So we should sacrifice reading for money? I guess I’ll have to be content being broke monetarily while reading AHH being they can’t write for shit.

      • Killuminati

        When would Floyd ever do his own books? It was in the news before that he was spending too much and they had to put him on a budget. Dude is dumb as fuk…..and when you got all that money then u got a nanny to raise your kids lol…..no rich person raises their kids they just make it look like that so the nanny will read

      • The Magical Negro

        No rich person raises their kids?

        U serious?

      • Killuminati

        If you think different then your as dumb as I think you are…..Floyd or any other celebrity is on the road promoting, performing or whatever else their demanding career expects from them on a hourly basis….how much time do you think he has for his kids? He or any other rich person has to put their career first or give up all that they have…be realistic mr negro

      • The Magical Negro

        Firstly no need for insults, intelligent debate doesn’t call for that.

        Secondly you didn’t say “Mayweather doesn’t raise his kids” you said “rich people” I personally know a very rich software designer and he personally tends to his kids everyday.

        There are plenty of rich successful people who raise their own children dude.

        Your just infatuated with money and think that you can use it to have “nannies” do what you are supposed to do.

      • Killuminati

        I’m sure you do…with a name like magical negro I’m sure you are in contact with rich people all the time….your just a black troll plain and simple….go back to your loser life

      • The Magical Negro

        No rebuttal though.

        L.

      • Killuminati

        Yep arguing with super ni*ger will get me somewhere

      • Immortal

        Floyd should know firsthand where his money is going. If I was a crappy accountant, then I could cook the books just by making entries in there that look official and only go to my personal account. Tracing your money is business 101 and something he should be able to do easily at any random time to keep his accountants and lawyers in check. In regards to the nanny, it seems to be the de facto standard, but I’m sure in between his rants Ye could read to North, Jay could read to Ivy, so on and so forth.

      • Not saying we should openly accept not being able to read in exchange for making good money, but in this case Mayweather found a way to make that happen. Why go so hard on bashing the man? And like I said I don’t know if he can’t read at all, or can’t read well, but I do assume he has to have some level of literacy because he couldn’t have gotten to where he is now with out some basic reading skills.

      • Immortal

        True to a point….Whether he wants to admit it or not, his father being famous and the son following had something to do with it. In that I mean, the father had folks looking out for “his best interests” and that includes the yes men and leagues of lawyers. Now move forward to the son, and he has the same thing. The same (but different) yes men and the same (yet different) league of lawyers and accountants. With all this around you, honestly he doesn’t have to read shit or be able to. It’s explained to him and he goes off the word of another. Where it comes to be an issue is in the simple things like reading for your kids. How many times have we heard of artists getting ripped off because they can understand money, but couldn’t read their contracts? Dexter Manley was proof in the 80’s of having GREAT talent in football, and making a killing off of it. He was found to have a third grade reading level and went broke soon after leaving the NFL because he was unable to read his contracts himself or audit his own books to track his money. Going hard on the man…yes I am. I recognize his ability to fight and be damn good at it, but he typifies what I see wrong in so many people and that is money makes all things right. And I expect more from him as a man, a father, and a brother. Hell I expect that much from everyone I come in contact with.

      • Can’t be mad at your reply at all my dude. Respect.

      • William Rutherford 19

        True dat, The sad thing about a person who can not read is the they will never be able to seek truth and understanding for themselves The illiterate will forever rely on others to literate and interpret the past present and future to and for them. In Floyds case I sincerely hope that someone in his circle does a literacy intervention before it’s too late. I don’t care for his persona but I do want the brotha to step up his book game.

    • The Magical Negro

      No YOU would trade away an ability that is priceless, for money.

      There are still people who believe that money isn’t everything.

      • The people who think that money isnt everything are generally the people who have it. Or at least enough of it to survive. Tell it to the man who lost his home, family, job etc due to lack of money; that money isn’t everything. It might not be, but it damn sure is the foundation of quality of life (not saying I agree but its truth, at least in America). Now I didn’t listen to the breakfast club tapes because I think its 100% ignorant that they even released them (making a mockery of a bonafide issue for laughs). But is it that Mayweather can’t read enough to be able to comprehend this very comment, or is he just not able to read at a high school level? I’m not gonna play devils advocate on the reading is/isn’t important issue because I do think it is, but again reading maybe priceless, but so is the ability to provide for your family, if you can make that happen without being able to read well, more power to you

  • Dreday410

    Really all this prove is 50 was right again on how Floyd REALLY works for GOLDEN BOY and TMT is just a name that 50 had to fork the money for the rights to while Mayweather was in jail….BOTH checks are from GOLDEN BOY PROMOTIONS not TMT which has nothing (fighters)….Video (50 cent big boi neighborhood)

  • black god

    so why Oscar and golden boy promotions paying tmt, shouldn’t tmt be getting paid directly from mgm grand and showtime, then tmt pay golden boy?

    • Killuminati

      Golden boy promotes all mayweather fights cuz he only fights their fighters…he will not do business with bob arum and golden boy is the only other large promotion team. And I’m sure he gets cut a check from MGM and he’s under contract with show time so he’s already been payed.

  • hustle

    lol who cares how much money he has, that response was weak. Can’t think of anything to say so bring up how much money i have.

    • Immortal

      IMO he just proved 50 right….

      • Killuminati

        Yea for sure….this is his response after he got done trashing his mansion cuz he was so mad bout that shit lol

  • Eli Pinilla

    Floyd is the best boxer in the world for a reason…When the teacher was like “read these books!!!” He said “naw, I’m going to the gym”….When his friends said” let’s go hoop” he said “naw, I’m going to the gym”. His mom is like “boy, come inside and wash these dishes, take out this trash” he said” naw mom, my dad said I’m going to the gym, don’t have time”. I’m sure his reading skills aren’t the only things he compromised to become the best fighter. His dad and uncle have condoned this….it’s a Damn shame, but somehow respectable.

  • William Rutherford 19

    if he cant read his contracts he will not have that money very long.

    • Killuminati

      You act like he reads them hisself lol…..mayweather promotions is a business….not just Floyd lol….he has a whole team to read for him wtf are you talking about ?

    • MR. UNDI$PUTED THE MOGUL

      HARD TO GO BROKE WHEN YOU ACTUALLY HAVE OVER $120 MILLION CA$H IN THE BANK!!!! NOT IN INVESTMENTS BUT ACTUAL CA$H.

      • William Rutherford 19

        actually its not very hard once the money stops rolling in if he continues his current spending habits. look at all the ex athletes who are now dead broke. hell Mike Tyson ring any bells?

  • Killuminati

    After taxes and it trickles down thru all the people he pays to handle and “read” his contracts he gets much much less…..would u rather be an illiterate millionaire or a broke genius?

    • BrotherMan21

      illiterate millionaire… People forget the purpose of going to college. It’s to gain a stable job and provide for your family.

      Also, the concept of *knowledge* is relative. You could be the smartest American but considered a moron if you traveled to a foreign country.

      • Killuminati

        Truuuu…..and a lot of peeps going to college aren’t getting jobs when they graduate anyways …..I’d be the illiterate millionaire anyday lol

  • Smashit

    The worst part is 50 stupid too, he just smarter than Mayweather lmao
    You know you stupid when you didn’t finish high school and get challenged to read by someone who didn’t finish high school but you can’t take the challenge smh

    • dee

      Its alot of stupid graduates to

  • King Cold

    Money doesnt equal a damn thing if u cant read those contracts Floyd. Mess around and have a contract where 75% of your earnings will be robbed from u. Damn shame. First R.Kelly cant read. Then Fantasia and now Floyd. But at least Fantasia got help with it. Smh.

    • Raheem Classick

      You say > Mess around and have a contract where 75% of your earnings will be robbed from u. / Floyd been in the game for over 15 years, if anything he’s gotten better at contracts”

    • jondoe

      Dont no artist read contracts that’s the lawyer’s job

  • brollya

    all that money and still cant read…… this the cockiest nigga in boxing history since ali but cant read….

  • regalpimp

    In other words… I’m rich, who cares if I can read???

    • Raheem Classick

      He didn’t get to where he’s at being stupid or A dummy, not smart, or not reading. Because somewhere in his 20 year career he had to do some reading on his own, and that also goes when he was an amateur boxer. But maybe in his line of work reading is not needed much, But he’s doing pretty well for himself.

      • regalpimp

        I was co-signing his statement, and you didn’t get that… But I’m the dummy tho…

      • Raheem Classick

        With respect to discourse. Please read again, I didn’t call you A dummy.

      • regalpimp

        My apologies… I did misread…

  • Super_Hero

    I bet Muhammad Ali would rather have his health then his wealth

  • frades

    Knowing how to read doesn’t mean that you can read. Reading numbers and applying common sense means you can read. Blacks wasn’t allowed to read; but yet, they build America. I’m a white college graduate, and I learned a thing of two from Floyd… and I make a lot of money because of Floyd and trust me, Floyd is very very intelligent. As a white man, I think blacks who down Floyd for not reading well, are very stupid… because Blacks are known as dropouts, poor ppl and jailbirds etc… so, blasting and laughing at Floyd only supports their incompetent race. This DJ was a dropout also, but he’s not making Maywealther money. Floyd is a true businessman regardless of his reading skills that’s why he hire smart ppl like me who works for him, I’m smarter than Floyd hell the President smarter than Floyd, but he don’t make Floyd type of money, so, once again, what in the hell this DJ conversation is about lol! Blacks are so stupid and petty…

    • Raheem Classick

      On behalf of all the people you are deliberately trying to offend, you can take your comments & posts and shove them up your SMART ASS!!!

    • The Magical Negro

      Troll.

    • Killuminati

      And then you woke up……

    • Immortal

      “that’s why he hire smart ppl like me who works for him”……you took a L as soon as you typed that. This is what we’re talking about now. “As a white man, I think blacks who down Floyd for not reading well, are very stupid… because Blacks are known as dropouts, poor ppl and jailbirds etc… so, blasting and laughing at Floyd only supports their incompetent race”… So you’re saying because you’re white it’s ok to judge another race, but when members of said race, take hard looks at their own, we’re wrong?

    • macmercer

      Says a guy hiding behind a fake name and a pic of 50cent!?! We really respect you immensely! From the black guy who can read very well!

    • Lmao nice try crakkka….your grammar is a lil off, with ya smart ass….lmao

  • LoverOfHipHop

    Well this was a shocking response. Its all in good fun though. He’ll be aiight.

  • anemia716

    wow, so money trumps intelligence? haha pathetic. haha

    but I bet he didn’t add those two figures up himself.

  • STFUUIgnants

    Not a bad response, but he should WANT to know how to read. Its like being handicapped if you don’t. His body guards, maids, butlers, yes men or whatever might not be there when he really needs them. Hell he cant even read his texts or tweets? That’s crazy.

  • anonymouscaveman

    am i the only one that double checked floyd’s math to make sure that he could at least add?

  • RobJMars

    What’s in Floyd’s portfolio besides boxing?

    • King Dolla

      He’s financially set for the rest of his life

    • He has a few business ventures bruh….google it

  • The Magical Negro

    The comments on this article are crazy. People would rather be dumb and rich than poor and smart. Listen kids, a smart man (whether college educated or not) can find a way to make himself rich. A fool and his money…..well you know the rest. It’s amazing how people think money solves all their problems without looking at the fact that is causes new ones.

    “But he got money though”
    “You don’t need college to be educated”
    “You’re just a hater”
    “Educated people still don’t have jobs tho”

    There, I saved you trolls some time by putting your responses up for you.

    • Killuminati

      Lol…..thanks super troll…..what you gonna do when your neighbor stops you from stealing their wifi?

      • The Magical Negro

        Your arms are too short kid…

        Come at me with some substance….not corny ass disqus jokes.

  • TruthSerum

    Your arguing with other rich people bruh. So maybe you have $500 million or so more then 50 Cent. That doesn’t mean nothing , your both rich and your lifestyle probably isn’t much different then his.

    There is no real difference between a dude with $100 million and a dude with a Billion. Either way, both are rich and will never have to work another day in their lives if they choose not to.

    • The Magical Negro

      I get your point.

      If I was that man with the 100 milli, the man with the billi would be my role model.

      My thing is this shit makes them BOTH look bad. Looks like coons throwing dirt on each other.

    • King Dolla

      there is no real difference between a dude with $100 mill and a dude with a Billion..lolol yeah its $900 mill difference

      • TruthSerum

        And that $900 million dollar difference won’t make your life very much different then the dude with $100 mill…….. Once you hit the 9 digit income bracket, your just super rich and that’s the end of it, the rest is just for ego and coon-type bragging rights. What’s the Billionaire gonna do, buy his own Island??? I guess the guy with $100 mill will just have to sit in his 30 bedroom mansion and cry the blues about it.

      • William Rutherford 19

        you obviously have no understanding of how finances, cash flows, tax brackets, luxury taxes and and expenses work. The only way that Floyd won’t go broke after retiring from boxing is if he find another revenue stream to replace his boxing this is highly unlikely – where are his endorsement deals? how is he invested? who is reading his contracts? has he been paying his taxes? his public persona and image is fit for boxing, but after boxing how with he sustain his current lifestyle and not go broke? and by the way there are huge differences between a millionaire and a billionaire. You become a billionaire by creating wealth and making a few millionaires along the way.

  • J. Smith

    Do you really believe that Mayweather can’t read? I’ve watched many guests at Power 105 stumble over drops. Either the handwriting was poor, or they were nervous, or both. It’s amazing to see people d*ck ride whatever ignorance is popular today. Besides the fact that this man gets hit in the head for a living, there are plenty of reasons he could have trouble reading at a steady pace. This does not make him stupid. I laughed at 50’s joke, because jokes are funny. To run with that joke and try to assassinate the character of another human being, based on that joke, is d*ck riding. I would love to host a reading competition for every one who said some negative sh*t about homie.

    • The Magical Negro

      That was a bitch move by power 105.

    • TruthSerum

      Truth. Education standards in this country are so poor that even if Floyd can’t read it wouldn’t make him so different from the people posting on this site. One look around this page is enough to show you that a vast majority of this sites visitors have grade school level grammar skills..

      • Rita Bookman

        I second that.

    • bigdoe6

      True.

  • William Witherz

    He should probably go and deposit those.

  • Raheem Classick

    Whether Floyd can read is true or not, nobody has ever brought this up until 50 Cent AKA Bugs Monkey said something, and now all of a sudden people are all on this Floyd can’t read kick, saying stuff like he has people to read everything to him. Really ? boy it won’t be long before some other ignorant Black person bashes another Black person so some of y’all can get your fix” SMG@YH!!

    • PorchBoySlim

      This isn’t the first time it has come up bruh. The media was on him a while back about him not being able to read. People talked about it after the BET awards also.

      • watch the espy awards too. he had a har time reading as well. i thought because he had on shades and that was before this esl challenge.

      • Raheem Classick

        So what, that doesn’t mean 50 Cent AKA Bugs Monkey should gossip like A school girl.

  • MR. UNDI$PUTED THE MOGUL

    As I stated the other day, Mr. Donkey of the Day Charlamagne or whoever was behind this better watch themselves. Dudes don’t take this type of disrespectful shit lightly! This story is on all major websites not just hip hop sites. 50 has over $100 million but that’s a 3rd of what Floyd is worth. He’s has over $120 million in at least 1 bank in vegas & owns like 5 – 10 cribs. How much is Charlamagne worth & when did he get on 50’s payroll?!?!? or what was his intentions on jumping in the middle of their “beef”?!?!

    • TruthSerum

      If Floyd were to throw away everything he has on this situation and risk his freedom over it, he’d just be proving to the world that all these people calling him an idiot were right to begin with.

      • MR. UNDI$PUTED THE MOGUL

        I agree with you 1,000,000% but that doesn’t mean a member of his crew/one of his boys wont do something, knowing Floyd has more than enough $$$ to make shit go way if it was really bad!!

  • fernelly

    of course he cant read

  • Ipullcards

    Nigga if they put 400,000 u wouldn’t be able to tell.. TI not 50 are broke they’re both multi-millionaires.. So what are u saying? It’s ok to be illiterate if you make money? Smh..

    • kpman80

      He’s obviously not illiterate.. He has a stuttering problem

  • Ipullcards

    Speak for yourself lmao

  • MR. UNDI$PUTED THE MOGUL

    Any adult should be able to read, however you go to school, high school & college to be able to one day get a job that’s pay well. Last I checked I’ve yet to hear or see of any college degree where you get a paycheck of over $30 million at 1 time!!! Hell he may feel sort of like his own version of that Diddy lyric…”Don’t worry if I can read, I can count”!!!!

    • you just don’t know any. they’re out there. we just dont know them. usually they pay themselves that.

  • Killuminati

    Yea buddy

  • danboy1386

    soooo…….. is he gonna read cat in the hat or not? seems like he doesn’t understand the challenge?

    • Rita Bookman

      LMAO!!!

  • NotRacist

    Money is the only thing Floyd has.

    • Fenom

      Actually he has a career. Which, if you didn’t know is different then filling out an application and getting a “job.” He’s also solidified in boxing history… and for you.. you’re solidified in B.S. comments on the web with no intellectual fortitude.

      If money is all he has… just look at how he earned it. I assume that you go to work everyday… how much do you make? Wouldn’t you want to make more? The answer is yes. So your comment exemplifies the jealousy surrounding this African American man.

      • kasshu

        Damn!!!! #SAlute!!

      • after boxing what do you do? the only boxer whos made millions after boxing is George Foreman. btw i m a web designer for a multi million dollar health insurance company that pays me well. not millions but i’m never broke and i can read well. to each is own, but to think because you are rich and not having to have an education is something well only dumb people would say who dont have an education or a good/great job/ career.

      • bigdoe6

        Floyd is good my dude. No sense of you trying to compare George to Floyd. When he retires he will be rich while the average cat hating will be trying to pay their cell phone bill.

      • my point is all he does is box. after that what happens. all he does from what he shows the internet is that he buys expensive things and gambles. yes those are big checks but there is a lot of people to pay after that. don’t get me wrong i’m a mayweather fan, but to say so what i have money has always been the dumbest excuse for any and everything.

      • digitallife

        Let’s them keep ignoring these facts….we’ll see them back in ten years after he retires.

      • bigdoe6

        What he does after boxing is none of my business. Regardless of what he’s full. I can’t tell the future. I don’t know his next move. All i know is the man is full. Floyd makes big purchases because he can afford to. He’s not renting anything like the dumb rappers. Am i supposed to hate cause he can afford to buy something??? No. It’s his money let him stunt. What he chose to do after he retire is on him. I just salute him cause he’s a successful Black man. Am i supposed to pray that he goes broke after he retires???? Come on fam only suckers think like that.

      • nobody is hating. who wants to see him go broke. the topis was that a lot of boxers go broke from handling their money and the fact that people think its cool to not being able to read and being rich. now you said he buys cars instead of leasing them like stupid rappers. now if you ask anyone with lots of money, you lease cars because as soon as it comes off the lot the value decreases especially luxury cars. you say you dont care but you obviously care just a lil bit to comment on here just like me and everyone else.

      • bigdoe6

        I didn’t say cars. It don’t matter what he buys. He can buy a submarine if he want i personally don’t care. It’s his bread fam. Let the man live his life and stunt. If he mishandles his bread that’s on him. More than likely this man family is good for the next 20-30 years financially. Foreman wasn’t getting close to what Floyd is getting just from boxing. Foreman came up after his career was over. So we can’t say what’s to come for Floyd as of yet. When i said i don’t care I’m saying it to say why should it matter to me what he does with his money??? It’s his money right???? Live life and spend it. You can’t die with it.

      • Golden boy, Bernard Hopkins (he still boxing tho), money has his own companies although he still boxes…not all fighters go broke after the ring but George Foreman isn’t the only boxer who makes money outside of the ring, which makes your statement…..false

      • kasshu

        So if you had a choice right now to be mayweather rich or a good reader which would you choose????

      • Ron Fleming

        The answer is he does whatever he wants, because with the kind of money he has, he doesn’t NEED to do anything. Once you hit the quarter billion dollar club, you’ve pretty much left behind the need to continue earning an income, unless you’re just continuing to do what you love. On just those two checks alone, he could spend a million dollars a year for the rest of his life and not touch any of his other assets, and still leave a charitable legacy greater than 99.99% of the people laughing at him will ever be able to give.

        Now I don’t know what he is or isn’t doing about his literacy, but I do know that it’s between him and him, none of us included.

        Another thing that they fail to understand is that most successful people admit that they surround themselves with smart people. The problem arises when these “smart people” violate the trust of their employer. So, the Jay-Zs and Mayweathers of the world often times need to higher a second CPA to check (audit) the work of their first CPA, and attorney and so on.

    Any people with real boxing business knowledge know what the $50,000 anti-doping payments for?

    Do boxers have to pay a fee to the drug testers according to the IBF? Or did Mr. Can’t Read just show the world evidence of a bribe? Cause that would be quite ironic and funny.

    • kpman80

      He pays for his own drug testing..you want to see this man fail that bad?

      • TruthHurts

        who said anything about failing?

    • hoeyuno

      They probably pay for it then get reimburst when they pass..

      • TruthHurts

        That would make sense

    • The ABC ( Association Of Boxing commissions ) uses 20% of their revenue for drug testing / anti doping because boxing commissions consider themselves private entities outside the WADA ( World Anti Doping Agency ) juristiction and aren’t mandated to test for human growth hormones (HGH), Tetrahydrogestrinone (THG),Testosterone,Nandrolone, Erythropoietin (EPO) and Androstenedione.

      They help increase mass, wieght or oxygen, etc. and are considered cheating.

      • TruthHurts

        So all professional boxers pay 20% to a private entity to conduct thorough drug testing? Wouldn’t most boxers rather a promoter pay this fee? Strange concept but I can see it’s positives and negatives.

      • Yeah, the promoter’s actually pay it, but recoup from boxers, like rappers, labels pay upfront, then recoup from rappers.

        So what you are seeing are deductions.

  • Raheem Classick

    I got A challenge for 50 Cent AKA Bugs Monkey. Can he stop talking about other people & artist in A negative way for the rest of 2014″ no matter what questions are asked or who ask those questions. I don’t think he can do it, why, because he’s A asshole plain and simple.

    • why would he? his music aint doing numbers anymore, the only reason anyone talks about him is when hes dissing someone.

      • Shame125

        “why would he? his music aint doing numbers anymore,”

        Nobody doing “Numbers” anymore.

        “the only reason anyone talks about him is when hes dissing someone.”

        Did you see his interview with the wall street journal a few weeks ago? There was no mention of any beefs. #nuffsaidnigga

      • you see his instagram or twitter? every few weeks he takes shots at someone, except mayweather, who he aims at whenever he can. And yes, it is still niggas who go gold, a handful who go platinum. with the numbers 50 put up as far as album sales and singles in the past, you would expect him to do decent, however, his last album did 91,000.

        If you break it down, niggas only get talked about in hip hop for 4 reasons: They’re lyrically relevant, they’re lyrically ass, they drop hits, or they’re in a beef. Fiddy was never a lyrical powerhouse, he’s too good to be considered wack, and he cant make hits like he used too. So, we are talking about him because hes in another beef. #allfactsnigga

      • Shame125

        Who went platinum this year? Name 3 rappers who sold 1 million albums this year?

      • So far, none. No one who moves albums forreal has dropped yet. However last year, Drake and Jay Z went platinum. Eminem went double platinum. Before that, it was Kendrick. Before that, Jay Z & Kanye (watch the throne), Drake, and Wayne. Unless you’re one of those 5 niggas, or maybe Ross or Nicki, you have no hope of going platinum

      • Shame125

        That was my point, nobody’s moving units now. Ross has never gone platinum. Niki can rap when she wants to, however I would consider her last album more pop than hip hop. Hell, Iggy Azalea with the number one single, can’t sell any “Albums”. She’s not even gold yet. And few, if any rappers have gone gold within this present climate.

      • bisolabliss

      • Raheem Classick

        50 Cent AKA Bugs Monkey’s G-unit Records sold about 91K in the first week, lets say at the average price of ten dollars, he made about 1 million dollars. Now we have the entities that have to be paid > G-Unit Records is signed to Caroline Records an independent distributor of Capitol Records. So you have two labels in you pocket from the start, along with that you have to pay for Features, Producers and Promotions. I’m sure 50 can read the writing on the wall > FLOP!!!

      • Raheem Classick

        I read your comment. The challenge to 50 Cent AKA Bugs Monkey still stands”

      • Shame125

        Are you serious!?!Just the other day, just before 50 challenged him to read, Floyd said f*ck him. Not to mention he made comments about him getting shot, how he respects the
        shooter. And those few comments are just scratching the surface as to what Floyd has been saying.

        Not to mention Floyd owes 50 money for incorporating the name“The Money Team” while Floyd was in jail.

  • digitallife

    Here we go changing the topic to money….floyd gets dissed about anything it’s instantly let’s go discuss money. Mike Tyson was rich once too…..

    • Bosho

      Because in this world that’s all that matters. Most of your favorite rappers didn’t even graduate High School. That’s why they’re like 40 years old acting like teenagers. I will add too that Floyd’s the Champion of his art. What about 50?

      • digitallife

        That’s all that matters in the world? He’s a master of his art? He boxes twice a year, that’s 363 days of the year he’s not boxing. You mean to tell me it doesn’t matter that he can’t read all those days? How are you signing contracts you can’t read? How are you in a restaurant unable to read a menu..how in the world by any logic is this ok? I mean let’s be real the amount of people making excuses for a grown man not being able to read is absolutely jarring. He’s got millions, that’s an awesome accomplishment. It’s been accomplished. Now let’s look at the statistics of uneducated people who make a ton of money and the percentage of them that actually stay rich after their profession is over. ESPN did a whole documentary on this, it might behoove you to check it out and get back to me. I’m really noticing a pattern too, the moment you start bringing up Floyd in any grey light it’s automatically turned into “what about so and so”. Fk that let’s discuss the man in question, fif’s resume speaks for itself outside of music. That mofo can make money a dozen ways and has. Tyson had more money than Floyd what happened when the checks stopped rolling in? Now he’s just another statistic in that group of he used to have…

      • Tyson had more money than Floyd?

      • digitallife

        Mike Tyson’s pet tigers cost upwards of half a million dollars to feed and care for per year…just the tigers. Yes, Tyson in his career had earned more money than Floyd has to this point. Over $300 million to be exact..Floyd will have earned more when it’s all said done tho. Floyd himself had financial issues a few years ago too with the IRS where they repo’d some cars to pay off the interest on his debt to them. I believe around this time is when Haymon came into the picture. I don’t want people to think I hate floyd or wish for his downfall. If anything I hope he manages to be one of the few that doesn’t fk it up…but sadly enough he doesn’t seem to think the money will ever run out. In many ways i’m seeing Floyd going down the same road as Tyson thinking the managers and advisers really are more interested in looking out for him than themselves.

      • jgraves58

        Floyd is nothing like Tyson, Floyd co-owns the promotion of his fights. Tyson for years was practically owned by Don King.

      • digitallife

        Why? Because he says so? This is where business education comes in handy. When did Floyd get his promotional license? Like six weeks ago so what exactly do you own as an unlicensed promoter? Hell not even the footage of your own fights. Ironically he was going around saying he made $82 million for fighting and beating canelo but then turns around and shows you a check almost a year later for $40 million plus…..i’m sure Tyson thought he was no Ali, this again is why I say “there is a problem with a 37 year old man being incapable of reading properly”. It behooves these guys to be capable of reading what they are signing and agreeing to.

      • Jonathan Bacher

        “All that matters in the world” lolll, you might be dumber than Floyd bro.

      • jgraves58

        Floyd obviously CAN read, he just doesn’t read well. Dudes a boxer, he doesn’t have to read like a archivist researcher. 50 just hating, just like a lot of these commenters.

      • digitallife

        If you call what he does reading then so be it. I don’t.

  • Everybody seem like a mayweather hater today. I like him as a boxer but his persona rubs me the wrong way at times, but to be real that boy is a very hard worker and the best at his craft. The interview proves that he obviously can read just not very well. I’m sorry but I can’t believe people on here tryna down talk a man who earned his money, which he has more of than anyone on here, and he earned it legitimately from his career. I used to see all kinda folks in class from high school thru college that weren’t strong readers, i never thought it was funny to ridicule them tho..I ain’t no saint but I don’t really think that sht was funny. That 70 sumn million ain’t nutn to laugh at either.

    • ApricotNapalm

      i agree but he bring it on himself w his silly ass taunts and & insensitive actions towards others, i dont feel sorry for him. he rich so he shouldnt feel bad either he can do whatever he want prolly….except read these comments with no problem

      • Gonja

        He want to be back friends with that nigga so bad. One minute he dissing, next minute he calling Floyd his “little brother” smh

  • Jay Smith

    Ouch!!! He’s winning.

  • Dope

    He’s just making himself look even more dumb with this. Paris Hilton can do the same shit, and we wouldn’t think she’s any smarter Floyd, and neither are you.

    • Jeff

      The only difference with Paris Hilton is that she’s spending her father’s money.

      • jgraves58

        Paris has made money on her own, it isn’t all family money that she’s spending.

      • Dope

        As jgrave said she did make some money of her own, but the point is they’re both rich and dumb, and instead of improving themselves, they spend money to entertain us and that doesn’t make them better than any of us, in fact, it only show money is their only strength, and without it they’re nobodies.

  • Mark Olford

    I’m not a big fan of Floyd but I have to say reading has nothing to do with your earning potential….I am good friends with a developer here in Australia whom only just learned to read a few years ago….we the same age, 41…this dude is not far from Floyd in terms of money….The point is I was floored when he told me his story and it actually went aganst what most of us were taught about success, and Floyd is an example of it as well….in order to achieve wealth you just have to be willing to do what ever it takes to master your gift/ gift God gave you…..Most people whom are wealthy didn’t finish nor went to college for that matter….A college education get’s you a ticket to the “middle class” that’s it…..how ever at the end of the day, I’d rather know how to read because I have a feeling Floyd will end up being a statistic once he can’t fight any more, which is sad, I hope I wrong….

    • Jonathan Bacher

      showing off your cool acquaintances ?

  • Word7

    Yeah Floyd you get the money but lawyers and advisor can easily rip you off and have you sign shit you don’t understand right in front of you face that’s the sad part. Don’t think yes men all ways have your best interest.

      You obviously don’t know how to spell “Your” & “Always”. Looks like you need to show us you can read and write first before you talk about Floyd Mayweather.

        lmfao

    • jgraves58

      Floyd is not going to get ripped off just because 50 cent says he can’t read. Someone would have been ripped him off if that was going to happen, dude been a multi-millionaire a long time. 50 is making himself seem like a low-class, petty nigga.

    • dodot24

    It’s funny how the Floyd haters come out in full force. I know a lot of people do hate the persona of him leading up to his fights. That’s his job to be the villain. But he’s one of the hardest working athletes in the business & he does it very well. Not a lot of people can say they can do their craft like that. As for 50, this is his normal antics. He needs to hate on others to bring himself up & stay relevant. Ask 50 when his album is coming out again. Better yet, come out with a hot song.

    • ItGoesDownINtheDM

        Iggy isn’t selling no albums. She’s no even gold yet. Not to mention 95% of the albums out now aren’t selling at all! I guarantee you 50 will get a bigger royalty check than Iggy for his last albums sales than she gets. And that’s if she gets anything at all. LMBO

      Don’t worry about Floyd. Haters are the reason why Floyd makes so much money. They tune in to see him lose. Every Cinco De Mayo, I go to a Mexican bar to watch Floyd and it never fails. I offer a $200 bet to anybody who is for the Latino fighter and each year I come away with at least a grand. Its normally a whole bar full of Money haters that I profit off of. Give it a try. Easy money.

    Do you want to know why there are no billionaires in hip hop? Ask yourself this: when was the last time you EVER saw a Jew get on national media and make fun of another Jew over a challenge he had?

    Put two Jews worth a quarter billion dollars a piece together, especially in the same industry, and what do you have? Two billionaires a few years later.

    Put two black entertainers together, and what do you get?

    And don’t take me the wrong way, I LOVE my people, but come on, we have to do better than this. I lost a lot of respect for 50 when he did that, because it doesn’t take much to be mean spirited. Even unsuccessful people can do that.

I’d hear it at the grocery store, could only imagine what they would think if I were some billionaire clowning some other Jewish billionaire for being illiterate.

  • William Rutherford 19

    Most of you do not understand the genius of fifs publicity machine. Step 1. Get on the reputable media outlets and talk nice. Step 2. You also have to nourish the bottom feeders, that would be you peolpe, who will log on to the blogs and mention him and floyds name a million times, Step 3. In the mean time, they are both laughing all the way to the bank…The point is, if you do not like a certain artist, entertainer, athlete then don’t blog about them, don’t click their links, because if you do you are just putting money in their pockets. Step 4. Floyd is close to retirement, there will no doubt be SMS vs. TMT boxing events featuring boxers from both camps which will have Showtime and HBO backing up the money train. This is no frivolous beef, this is cold calculated maneuvering by fif weather or not Floyd knows it. Same strategy used to promote hip hop the past 20 years.
