In reality, the title for this post should be "50 Cent and Manny Pacquaio Have Teamed Up to Form a New Promotional Company." But, c'mon: We all know what this is! Just days after 50 went on the Rickey Smiley Show and admitted that he and Floyd Mayweather aren't as close as they used to be, he's now reportedly formed a new promotional company with Mayweather's archnemesis. According to Boxing Scene, the company was supposed to include 50, Manny, and Floyd…but that idea has now been scrapped by a better one that'll get tempers flaring and possibly—hopefully!—be the spark that finally forces Money May and Pacman to get into the ring together.
"50 Cent and I have been talking now for maybe the last two months," says Pacquiao's advisor Michael Koncz. "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 part of it."
No word on what Mayweather thinks about all this yet. But, we're sure he'll have something to say about it soon.
In the meantime, we've gotta ask: Isn't Pacman already down with MMG? And, doesn't 50 hate MMG's leader Rick Ross? And, aren't…D'ah well. This is all very confusing. Let the games begin!
