Fiddy just added a new title to his portfolio and is now an official licensed boxing promoter in the state of New York.
According to reports, Fif is also looking to get a license in Nevada.
Sports Illustrated’s Chris Mannix reports that Curtis Jackson is now an officially licensed boxing promoter in New York State, with plans to get his license in Nevada as well. His company is called The Money Team Promotions (TMT) and will reportedly rep Yuri Gamboa and Andre Dirrell at the outset. There’s no word on whether 50 will ultimately work officially with Floyd. And while a Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao fight is still a longshot, if anybody can make it happen it’s a dude who survived nine gunshot wounds. (Complex)
Back in April, undefeated boxing champion Floyd Mayweather, Jr. hinted at Fif’s venture into boxing promotion.
In an interview with RingTV, Mayweather revealed that 50 Cent has been getting involved with Mayweather Promotions and may be featured on a fight card in the future. “Well, 50 is getting involved in boxing as far as getting involved with fighters, because he boxed at one particular time in South Side Jamaica, Queens. I had a chance of actually going to his neighborhood, and he was a rough, rough kid, tough,” Mayweather said. “I think he’s going to be involved on the promotion side. We may even put him there, let him fight on pay-per-view one time. So we don’t really know what the future holds, but he is getting involved with boxing,” he added.
