American rapper 50 Cent has posted a picture of himself with boxer Manny Pacquiao along with the words ‘Big business moves’ which could impact on his relationship with the Filipino’s rival Floyd Mayweather.
Rumours about a rift between Mayweather and 50 Cent have been rife ever since Mayweather was released from prison.
Pacquiao’s adivsor, Michael Konz told Boxing Scene: ’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.
‘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. I explained the idea to Manny.
‘We already have a promotional company, MP Promotions, and we have already done three separate promotions from Top Rank…on a small scale. I have to take the blame for that.
‘I’m in charge of it. There is an element missing there, but I have so much to do with Manny – that I haven’t got that company to where I want it.
‘I think with 50 Cent, with his entertainment connections and his popularity there, combining that with Manny’s popularity and expertise in boxing – we can bring a new flavor to boxing – we can excite some young boxers and I think we can sign some top quality boxers.
‘I spoke to 50 Cent tonight and confirmed that we’re going to go forward.
‘Manny is coming here this weekend for other business, but we’re all excited about it. With 50′s influence in the music industry – we want to put a different flavor on the shows.’
50 Cent told Power 105.1 there is no problem between himself and Mayweather and does not think working with Pacquiao will cause trouble.
‘I think he’ll (Mayweather) go “I wish him luck”… It’s not like I’m not in communication with him. I texted him and told him everything.’
Mayweather had set up a promotional company with 50 Cent, known as TMT (The Money Team).
The company was said in some quarters to have the possibility to change the boxing scene but it’s website has now been taken down and the venture looks finished.
Pacquiao, meanwhile, is set to face Juan Marquez in December and wants to put an end to any doubts regarding his superiority over his opponent.
Three bouts in eight years have not resolved the rivalry so they meet again on December 8 at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas.
