Manny Pacquiao And 50 Cent Reportedly Joining Forces, Starting Promotional Company Together

Manny Pacquiao And 50 Cent Reportedly Joining Forces, Starting Promotional Company Together
World

In a shocking twist, it looks as if 50 Cent may be joining his good friend Floyd Mayweather’s biggest rival, Manny Pacquiao, in a venture to start a new promotional company.

Pacquiao’s advisor Michael Koncz told the Boxing Scene about the boxer’s relationship with the rapper:

“50 Cent and I have been talking now for maybe the last two months. They approached us with the idea to form a promotional company,” Koncz told Boxing Scene.

“Initially it was going to be 50 Cent, Manny and Floyd. But right now I don’t think Floyd is going to be a part of it.”

This news comes after 50 Cent closed TNT Promotions, which he established in July in hopes of promoting Mayweather’s upcoming fights.

50 Cent has acknowledged, however, that his relationship with Money Mayweather has been strained since Floyd returned from jail.

“[The issues between us] really comes from everybody around him is waiting on the next time he feels generous. And I have a lot [of money], so I don’t wait for nobody,” 50 Cent said on the Rickey Smiley Show. “I’ll go do what I gotta do. I don’t have to sit around and wait for the next time he feels like giving somebody something.”

50 Cent denied rumors that he had an affair with Floyd’s fiance, Shantel Jackson.

This may eventually lead to the Pacquiao/Mayweather fight happening, especially if this deal cuts Bob Arum out of the equation. After all, the fight is really what matters in this situation.

I wouldn’t be surprised if 50 and Floyd have something up their sleeves…
