: Well the beef between 50 Cent and Floyd “Money” Mayweather is officially over . . . and Money May WON BY KO. And no . . . he didn’t win by CLOWNING 50, he won it by threatening 50’s CAREER as a boxing promoter.
You see yesterday, 50 f*cked with the wrong people, namely Floyd and his business adviser Al Hayman. Al is one of the BIGGEST BEHIND THE SCENES PLAYERS in boxing, he advises MOST of the top stars. And Well THE STREETS are saying that Al got one of 50’s fighters KICKED OFF a TV fight.
Here’s how our friends at BoxingScene.com are reporting it:
BoxingScene.com was advised by several sources who are close to the situation, that IBF featherweight champion Billy Dib (35-1, 21KOs) is potentially being replaced as the opponent for undefeated contender Jayson Velez (19-0, 14KOs).
Sources, with knowledge of situation, believe Dib’s removal is the direct result of the escalating war of words between rapper/promoter 50 Cent and former friend Floyd Mayweather Jr. The two individuals were once close friends, but their relationship went sour over a business deal gone bad.
Dib is promoted by Jackson under a company called SMS Promotions. However, Golden Boy and Haymon are working with Miguel Cotto Promotions on the December 1st event. Obviously, there is absolutely no reason for Golden Boy and Haymon to help Jackson secure a televised position for one of his fighters on a high profile event.
So 50 took to Twitter yesterday . . . and APOLOGIZED to Floyd . . . hoping that Floyd would now allow his fighter to get some SHINE.
