50 Cent is on pace to be one of the industry’s first Billionaires, and the mogul is trying to accelerate the inevitable with his recent venture into professional boxing. No 50 is not putting on any boxing gloves, instead he will be promoting the matches and has gotten a boxing license under New York State. But get this, the name of his company is TMT (The Money Team). “Money Team” is a term that 50’s best friend and boxing’s main attraction, Floyd Mayweather coined. Floyd has his own promotional company called Mayweather Promotions.
The Bleacher Report is reporting that 50 Cent has his eye on former featherweight world champ Yuriorkis Gamboa (21-0, 16 KO) and super middleweight contender Andre Dirrell (20-1, 14 KO). Both fighters were rumored to be signing with Mayweather promotions and were recently seen working out at Mayweather’s gym.
So we have to ask, is 50 Cent stealing Mayweather’s talent from right under his nose while he’s locked behind bars? Maybe this is a joint venture that hasn’t been announced yet. If not, should Mayweather feel some kind of way?
