The biggest boxing match in a very long time is coming in less than two months when Floyd Mayweather finally faces Manny Pacquiao. One of the Mayweather’s biggest critics has been rapper 50 Cent but during an interview with Power 105.1 in New York City, 50 Cent said that he will probably bet $1.6 million on Mayweather winning the fight.
There are going to be millions of dollars put down for this fight but putting that much money down on one fighter seems a bit much. Maybe this is just 50 Cent’s way of pumping Mayweather up for the fight by saying well ahead of time that he is going to bet that much money on him. The two may even have to get together and exchange a handshake when the fight is over if Mayweather wins.
It’s not that 50 Cent hasn’t had his share of media attention from the sports world. A look at what he did last season while throwing out the first pitch at a New York Mets game shows that he may not be the greatest athlete out there.
It will be up to Mayweather now though to have 50 Cent put his money where his mouth is and make the bet. It will end up being a big pay day for someone.
