50 Cent sat down with Ronda Romain and had this to say regarding buisness with Manny Pacquiao. “My communications with Manny Pacquiao and his team was for Floyd Mayweather,” Fif explained…
“The company itself was initially being created to be a bargaining chip that they could actually split and look at it like it was a retirement plan. When you have a fighter that doesn’t make money off anything but fighting and they’re in that cycle of get the money, spend the money. You know that it’s a comfortable flight, but the plane has no wheels.
When it does land, it will crash land. So, if I’m sitting there and I’m trying to create that thing that’s in between that allows them to be around what they’re passionate about. And that’s the sport of boxing. They’ve put everything into it.
When I build it and you decide you don’t wanna do it. When there’s no income away from anything else but boxing and you know you can’t fight forever. And you’re saying ‘I got 2 of 3 left in me.’ And you see the actual fighter not fighting the toughest opponents. And navigating like ‘let me fight who I think I can win [against].’
When you see those decisions being made you go ‘OK, hold up… let me start thinking about your exit strategy.’ If that doesn’t pop up then you don’t have any logic with the way you view your life.”
Floyd Mayweather should have jumped head first into buisness with 50.
