Would You Pay to Watch a Fight Between 50 Cent and Floyd Mayweather Jr.?
So, let’s say you’re a 37-year-old rapper. We’ll call you Curtis. You weigh 204 pounds and you’ve never ever fought a professional boxer. How much would you take to exchange blows with a world champion who’s never lost a fight? For 50 Cent, $5 million will do the trick.
Some of you already know that Fiddy and his frenemy Floyd Mayweather Jr. have been fake-feuding on Twitter for some time now. In the latest episode, 50 Cent agreed to fight Floyd for $5 million.
Billionaire Alki David and boxing promoter Damon Feldman floated the offer to Fif. “I’ll fight him, Dec 14th is [too] soon,” 50 tweeted in response. “I would need time to get in shape. I’m 204 right now I hit that boy he will see a white light,” he bragged.
Floyd hasn’t said anything about the fight offer, but I wonder if he’ll seriously consider the easiest pay day of his life.
So, here’s my question to you: Would you pay to watch 50 and Floyd throw hands?
