Rapper 50 Cent is adding a new section to his resume. Boxing promoter.
50 Cent, real name Curtis Jackson, has founded TMT (The Money Team) Promotions in order to help arrange fights for his boxer BFF, Floyd Mayweather, according to a report in Sports Illustrated.
Mayweather is currently serving an 87 day jail sentence, and 50 Cent plans to begin plotting the star’s ring comeback in the coming weeks.
Mayweather recently hinted about 50’s crossover into the boxing world by telling XXL magazine, “As far as boxing I think he is going to be involved with the promotion side. We may even put him out there, let him fight on pay-per-view one time… He would bring a lot to the table. He’s not just my best friend, he’s one of my business partners and one of the smartest guys I know.”
Let’s see if 50 Cent can get the Mayweather/Pacquiao fight sorted out!
