The former TMT [The Money Team] friends were rumored to have split up for weeks. Last week, 50 Cent took to his twitter account to express his departure from the team, while auctioning off his former boxing collectibles he’d obtained from his friendship with Floyd. Now, initially Floyd took the high road and did not did not respond to 50 but that all changed this weekend. Floyd issued out several tweets to 50 cent [some personal jabs] and 50 did the same.
The fall-out is alleged to be of the following reason:
“50 Cent and Floyd Mayweather had originally formed TMT Promotions [boxing company] but in the wake of their fallout, 50 Cent has moved in his own direction while still finding himself aligned with former champion Yuriorkis Gamboa, IBF featherweight titlist Billy Dib, and super middleweight contender Andre Dirrell while looking to launch his own SMS Promotions.”
Now here’s Floyd tweets:
50 Cent in his usual fighting demeanor responded:
HBO analyst, Larry Merchant says that although 50 cent gained success in music endeavors, that outcome may not be the same in the boxing world. Merchant said:
“I don’t know who his [50 cent] friends are. We’re finding out who his enemies are, but I don’t know who his friends are. Right now, he’s just another wannabe promoter with a few fighters, none of whom are big attractions. So, whatever his reputation is in the music world, doesn’t necessarily translate into the boxing world.”
After learning all of this I’m not sure if this a REAL beef or a fighting promotions plug? Well, This morning 50 cent took to twitter and said the entire beef was FABRICATED?
I was right from the gate! SMH! Let’s all move on now!
