Now, the G-Unit general is bringing that same competitive aggression into the boxing promotion game.
Last week it was reported that 50 has founded TMT Promotions—short for The Money Team—which has already been licensed in New York and is in the process of applying for a license in Nevada, the hub for most prized bouts.
Well, last night (July 25), ’Fif took to his Twitter to put his biggest competition in his scope—former boxing great Oscar De La Hoya, who runs the highly-successful Golden Boy Promotions.
“I don’t gamble floyd do,but I bet you you won’t be promoting Floyd mayweather no more. TMT PROMOTIONS,” 50 tweeted in De La Hoya’s direction, hinting that gone are the days that his best friend and currently incarcerated Mayweather be promoted by De La Hoya’s company.
50 continued berating De La Hoya from there.
“I just want you to know if you ever want to talk you can give me a call girl,” 50 added. “Baby girl, baby girl you here me,stop hating STOP IT RIGH NOW.”
Finally, De La Hoya responded.
“Your a boxing promoter?” he shot back. “Didn’t know, but good luck maybe we can work someday. #success #next generation #GBB #TMT”
To that, 50 replied: “Great back pedal,can you swim backwards like that to girl?lol I except that as a apology.”
50 was by Mayweather’s side, when the boxer turned himself in to begin his 87-day jail sentence for domestic violence back on June 1.—Mark Lelinwalla
