50 Cent agrees to fight Floyd Mayweather for $5 million

11/14/2012 at 9:43 am By

If you weren’t aware, undefeated champ Floyd “Money” Mayweather and his BFF Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson had a public beef recently, that 50 claims was a publicity stunt (of course it was).

Well apparently, someone is willing to pony up $5 million to each Mayweather and 50 to get them to square off in the ring, according to Hip Hop Wired:

Billionaire entrepreneur Alki David and Celebrity Boxing promoter Damon Feldman are breaking off undefeated boxing superstar and Money Team leader and former buddy $5,000,000 each to settle their differences in the ring.

“I’ll fight him, Dec 14th is [too] soon. I would need time to get in shape. I’m 204 right now I hit that boy he will see a white light,” 50 tweeted.

Mayweather has yet to respond to the offer, but it appears that 50 is all for it. The power of the dollar is strong, so it would not be surprising to see Mayweather opt in to the fight as well.

The real question is this: would you buy a PPV fight featuring a 43-0 pound-for-pound champ and a multi-platinum rapper who has no professional boxing experience? Yeah, me either.

      Id give 50c a chance MMA rules. He could probably take Mayweather down and smash him with ground and pound. 50lbs is a lot to overcome.

    If 50 Cent seriously train hard, he can perhaps be a challenging match for his professdional opponent, it might be worth the money to watch. Anyway, 5 million is worth the chance – good business move.

        Listen dude 50 cent can train for a whole year straight without catching a break and still not be a competition for Mayweather are you dumb? Lol…there s no way he is going to compare to Mayweather. Mayweather didn’t just came up from one day to another he been boxing for over 17 years you crazy…just cause 50 is hood and probably can fight don’t mean he can box. You crazy..just saying.. Lol…

            So, what! I used to box, and I’m willing to bet that I could kill 50 Cent in the ring out out of the ring! I wouldn’t last a minute against Mayweather….

    Yea ok…your gonna say that Mayweather, a 140lbs boxer who has a hard time knocking out men his own size is gonna knockout a man who has 50lbs on him…I think 50 will have a hard time hitting Mayweather cuz of his speed and defense, but to say Mayweather is gonna knock him out is ridiculous! And theres no way Mayweather would take this fight…hes wont fight Pacquiao for over $50 million…why would he fight 50 for $5 million?????

      Please….When I was an armature fighter, I fought at 132 pound. I would still destroy these 200 + pound tough guy wannabes who never boxed but thought they could! They would come in the ring and laugh at me because of my size….They didn’t laugh after I ended up KOing their asses! Yeah, sometimes it took me longer than a round to do it, but I still Koed their asses! Oh, and they hit like pussies, too. They were muscled up football players, but I was hit harder by light weight fighters who I was competing against in Nationals! :p Hell, my light weight sparing partners could hit harder than these football players, and my light wight sparing partners could also taking more punishment, too…In fact, I never could KO my sparing partners, but they were real good armature boxers, too. Point I’m making?? If I got in fighting shape, I would probably beat 50 cent’s ass in the ring…What makes you think that Floyd wouldn’t just slap 50 cent around with one hand tied behind his back?? :p Hell, Floyd should just let me fight 50 Cent foe that 5 million dollars! He’s already super rich, and I could really use that 5 million dollars! If they’ll let me get in fighting shape, I should be able to beat 50 Cent, too…I don’t know if I could KO him, but I sure should be able to beat the shit out of 50 Cent. ;)

        Well, I see what you are saying, every individual is different, im 220 lbs, but I know I would reck you in a boxing match, I have ko power in both hands and im quick, sorry but no 135 lbs person can beat me, but I know how to fight and take a punch

        I was also an amateur boxer. I was 168lbs and I would train with a guy that was 215 and a guy that was 115.
        I agree to a point Rick, but if you wouldve stepped in the ring with me at 135, you would be in a hurry to get home and check your dental insurance. All it would take would be a lucky punch from 50 and Money May would go down. I agree that May would make him look silly because 50 is not a pro boxer, but all it takes is one lucky punch

        Rick, I agree with you 100%! I fought as well and these clowns posting silly comments have no idea. I floored dudes at 200+ as well. You see we train to do this stuff and 50 cent probably never even sparred. I know guys at 125 that would knock the fuck out of 50 cent and alot of other clowns that have no idea on what it takes to prepare for a fight. I see where your comming from bro. Oh and yeah some clown can get lucky with a haymaker but so can anyone. the only way you get nailed with a bullshit punch is if you dont see it comming or your tired as hell. Most of these clowns wont last 30 secounds. 50 gets stopped in 2 rounds mayweather will box his ears off! Good post Rick

          I agree with all of the trained amatuer boxers that a trained fighter can whoop on a bigger “tough guy.” With that said though, 50 Cent started boxing at age 11. He competed in the amatuer boxing jr. olympics, and I even recall Emmanuel Steward (RIP Legendary trainer) talking about 50 Cent had won the New York local or state Golden Gloves tournament during one of the HBO PPV broadcasts.

          So with that new information, mixed with the fact that 50 would train at the Mayweather gym (I don’t know if he sparred, so we’ll just say worked out) what do you think his chances of beating Floyd are now? I still say slim to none but thats better odds than no chance in hell.

    I THINK 50 CENT WILL MAKE THE BIGGEST MISTAKE OF HIS LIFE BY FIGHTING MAYWEATHER!.ITS NOT ABOUT MONEY, ITS ABOUT PRIDE AND NO MAN WANTS HIS PRIDE MESSED UP.50 IS NOT APROFFESSIONAL AND CANNOT STICK TO A GAME PLAN.HE WILL BE OUT IN 6TH.(50CENT)

    50 Cent is well known for all such publicity stunts. But if they ever fought, Mayweather would knock him out in one punch.

    You have to be an idiot to think 50 Cent could even stand a chance at Mayweather. It takes years of dedication to build up the kind of cardio and muscle memory professional boxers (athletes) have.

    50 would probably be tired near the end of the first round to be honest – and that’s a conservative estimate. Now add in the experience and technique that Mayweather has he will just be dancing around the ring no problem.

    @DEBULL I agree it would be a huge mistake. 50 is a rapper and his reputation depends on people thinking he can handle himself.

    @Jason – as an experienced mma trainer I can say that Mayweather would have no problem knocking 50 out. Yes he has 50+ lbs on him but more weight does not mean he has an iron jaw. Mayweather might have trouble knocking out other professional boxers in his division but they have all developed the speed to roll with the punches and the endurance to take a hit.

    THAT BEING SAID…I would love to see that fight so I could LMAO…

        Actually yes he was a golden gloves boxer. 90% of the ppl in here are idiots. not only that 50 cent ways like nearly 100 lbs more than mayweather. i doubt theyd fight in the same class.

    Have you seen the footwork of a REAL boxer? Side stepping, cutting off the ring, swinging to meet the ducking movements of a lesser fighter’s head would move, and ducking under punches while stepping into with a counter-punch. You really think that 50 knows what punch can counter a left hook? hahahahahahaa
    More so, just because someone shoots a gun doesn’t mean that they can fight. Most hoodies, all they do is blindly swing and move their head back so that it doesn’t get it, all Mayweather needs to do is duck under and swing with an uppercut and 50 is sleeping like he got hit with a bat under the chin.
    As a former 10 year US Marine and martial arts instructor, never under estimate someone smaller than you and though I’m 250, only 10 pounds heavier than my military days, I never under estimate fighters who are smaller. Speed can almost always overcome power. 50 may have power, but his fighting style would be awkward, his head-movements would be predictable, and he would tire faster in later rounds. Mayweatheer is going to make him look stupid, wear him down, let him make a mistake, and knock his ace out like that guy On the movie “Friday.”

    Some of you are just idiotic to think if fifty cent trains sun up sun down he’d have a chance. Floyd has been training like that since he was a litle boy. Some people don’t get the art of boxing and don’t realize how quickly fifty could get demolished. Remember last year i believe floyd one punch KO’d some dudes big ass body guard. Do we really want that for fifty? its a stupid ass fight. I’ve trained with pro boxers and if he didn’t want me to touch him i couldn’t. Even after all the training I did and i did good against amateur boxers. That professional level is entirely different let alone a world camp as fast and as evasive as mayweather. Fifty wuldnt last a single round

    Actually you’re wrong.

    Unless 5o is properly trained he wouldn’t hit harder then a pro boxer who is 50p lighter dude think about it.

    Not only can a properly trained fighter always hit harder but can always take much much more punishment.

    It called conditioning, (except for the glass jaw syndrome) I can’t believe I’m even having this conversation.

    fighting at that level requires YEARS of training…like science…

    with that being said, ANYONE can get caught….all you have to do is look at the history books….

    on a final note….Floyd Mayweather beats Women, and 50 calls them bitches…

    I can’t stand Mayweather, and I like 50 Cent, but that said, Mayweather would ABSOLUTELY DESTROY 50 Cent. It would be embarrassing, and it would be over in a round (two tops).

    I appreciate 50’s competitive side, but he’s deluding himself to think he even has the slightest chance. Just mail in the stats.
