Billionaire Offers Boxer Floyd Mayweather and Rapper 50 Cent $5 Million To Fight In The Ring
Billionaire Alki David and partner Damon Feldman of Celebrity Boxing offerings the pair $5 million for a three-round celebrity boxing match.
50 Cent and Floyd Mayweather Jr. have been embroiled in a war of words and tweets over the past month, after a falling out, apparently over business.
The issue appears to be over a proposed boxing venture the pair were supposed to do together called The Money Team Promotions.
But shortly after Floyd Mayweather Jr. was released from prison in August, 50 claimed prison had “changed” Mayweather.
He then announced he was creating a new promotion company with Floyd’s rival, Manny Pacquaio, which was confirmed by Pacquaio’s business manager Michael Koncz.
More recently, on November 1, 50 Cent announced he was done with The Money Team Promotions.
Their war of words escalated over the weekend, when the pair traded shots via Twitter.
According to David, the show would air on FilmOn.com and BattleCam.com, two ventures that David owns or is an investor in.
To make things safe, Floyd Mayweather Jr. and 50 Cent would fight three 2-minute rounds in head-gear, along with big celebrity boxing gloves.
The proposed fight will happen in Las Vegas, Nevada on December 14, if either of the two men accept the offer.
Both 50 Cent in Floyd Mayweather Jr. have been silent on their Twitter accounts over the past several days.
