Floyd Mayweather, 50 Cent in major Twitter beef

The beef between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and 50 Cent is at full force.

The boxer and rapper were once best friends, but their relationship deteriorated after a failed business partnership. Mayweather said in April that 50 was getting into the boxing promotional game. 50 took that a step further, implying in July that he was going to start promoting Mayweather and other fighters.

When Mayweather got out of jail, he had other ideas, and by September we learned that their venture had fallen apart (some alleged leaked jailhouse letters from 50 to Mayweather supposedly played a part in this). 50 Cent confirmed that was the case when he went off on Mayweather over Twitter Wednesday.

TMT IS OVER the money team is no longer a team. So it SMS promotions that’s it thats all.SMSaudio … I’m no longer apart or down with TMT promotions. SMSaudio … If anyone wants a money team jacket I’m selling mine for a dollar. The nap back hat comes with it. That’s a fare price. SMSaudio … I move the fighters to SMSpromotion cause the other half of the money team .Didnt put up there $MONEY$.SMSaudio,” 50 Cent wrote on Twitter.

He continued his assault on Mayweather on Friday:

Mayweather wasn’t about to let 50 call him a “punk” and say he’s ducking Manny Pacquiao without fighting back. He called 50 Cent a “groupie” in response.

Mayweather also blasted 50 in a separate tweet with offensive language, calling him “boy” and saying he looked cute wearing a TMT (The Money Team) jacket.

50 Cent really seemed set on creating some noise Friday. He tried getting Mayweather’s attention because he wants his former friend to fight Yuriorkis Gamboa, who is one of his boxers. He said he would pay the winner a $20 million bonus. 50 also went after Andre Ward, trying to goad him into fighting Andre Dirrell, who is another one of his clients.

After Friday’s exchange, it’s pretty safe to say these guys are now sworn enemies.

UPDATE: 50 Cent says the beef was staged.

    This is the WFCN World Fight Channel Network, we are not promoters but a broadcast company.  I want to broadcast right now that the .50 Cent and The Money Team are at a cross roads.  I have been following boxing since 1962 and I must say…  Cause time is short, it’s over.?! 

  • JulesAHenry

    Not welling to get involved but it must be said, leave boxing promotion to boxing promoters.  Can you see The Money Team distributing music world-wide?!  The Boxer is the employer all ways was and all ways will be?!  Can you see Freddy Roach going into promotion?!  That’s not intelligent… It might last a couple of minutes?!

  • JulesAHenry

    Last but not least I have seen Manny’s style before.  I used it in 1973-74 in the U.K. on to a championship against an undeafted fighter with 25 fights under his belt (professional).  If Mayweather uses that style against Manny, it will end by way of knock-out…  The only reason Mayweather doesn’t wanna fight Manny is because there is a lot on the line an undefeated record… So to make sure there was no doping, take the test?!  To much time has past, now…

    The World Fight Channel believes every fight is for the World!

    It’s nothing but promotion!  Boxing has fallen off so much that now the promoters are fighting in order to draw attention to any future endeavors. Pay per view and a shortage of real talent make promoters have to come up with unique strategies to convince people to spend their money.
