Floyd Mayweather Is Down to Fight 50 Cent Despite Weight Class
Written by DJ AquaTrunk on February 3, 2021
On Wednesday (Feb. 3), Floyd Mayweather confirmed he would be interested in fighting 50 Cent in an exhibition at the end of the year, despite the two entertainers being in different weight classes. In an Instagram post, Floyd maintained he is not afraid to take on his long time rival.
“I also heard that 50 cent would fight me but claims I’m too small. If he wants to lace up at the end of the year, we can do an exhibition then. I don’t care about weight class with any of these guys. The Paul brothers will make great money with the events, but with 50 cent It has to be “Winner Take All”.,” Floyd wrote toward the end of his statement.
The 43-year-old professional boxer’s latest statement about the Queens native comes after 50 spoke with V-103′s The Morning Culture show and claimed he would box alongside the WBC welterweight champ.
“I’d fight Floyd,” he started.” I don’t think I could make weight though. … Or he’d just have to let me not get down to 150. I tried I looked like a homeless person. I could make it down to probably, like 180.”
Of all the blows the pair have traded back and forth over the years, this seems to be the most civil. Floyd Mayweather is the only rival 50 Cent is willing to entertain. His long time enemy Ja Rule has been requesting to do a Verzuz battle with the Fif, but the rapper has refused to participate.
Floyd and 50 once had a great relationship, but over the years the two have traded insults in each other’s direction for nearly a decade.
