“Why are y’all looking at me like that?” Well maybe it’s because you sound like a damn fool, Floyd! Money May must have been bored yesterday when he dropped this Boondocks worthy video showing off his jewelry. It’s worth a watch just for the assortments of quotables on being a “black Jew” and “black on black crime.” Get this man back in the ring, ASAP. Floyd has got too much time on his hands.

The “lover’s quarrel” is now public. After months a verbal jabs from 50 Cent, Floyd Mayweather has finally begun responding with taunts of his own, igniting a Twitter and Instgram argument last night to the entertainment of boxing and music fans alike. Mayweather began posting pictures of 50 calling him a “male groupie” and belittling his attempts to gain a foothold in boxing under SMS Promotions. 50 responded in kind by blaming Floyd for the breakup by refusing to fight Yuriorkis Gamboa, who has remained with 50 and is tentatively scheduled to fight on Top Rank’s Manny Pacquiao vs. Juan Manuel Marquez IV card. In addittion, 50 claimed Floyd is “broke” and living off an “allowance” from Al Haymon. Some of the highlights are included below.
These two are something else. Even with the personalities involved, it’s amazing how quickly the “The Money Team” dissolved. As far as 50 goes, if he hopes to stay in boxing he must grasp the reality that his rap beef tactics, which have already run their course in this Hip-Hop era, will get him nowhere in boxing. Sure, guys like Golden Boy’s Richard Schaefer and Top Rank’s Bob Arum can be just as spiteful and petty, but they have the common sense not to put their business on Front Street and squabble like teenagers.
The most interesting (and odd) thing about these tweets was 50′s accusation that Floyd “ducked” a fight with Yuriokis Gamboa. If 50 really did propose that fight I can see why Floyd ended their business relationship. Gamboa was set to make his debut at 140 earlier this year, but you throw him in there with Floyd, who just fought at junior middleweight in May?
And the shot at Andre Ward in hopes of getting his fighter Andre Dirrell a fight were laughable. Dirrell, for all his talent, has been wasting away on the shelf for the last year and done nothing to even have his name uttered in the same sentence with S.O.G. at this point.
I’m sure this will be the first of many jabs Floyd and 50 will continue taking at each other. Expected 50 to go dig up some old groupies of Mayweather’s while Floyd all of sudden gets cozy with Rick Ross and a few other 50 adversaries.

50 Cent and Floyd Mayweather’s upstart TMT (The Money Team) Promotions added more firepower to their brand with the announcement of three new signings in Andre Berto, Zab Judah and Celestino Caballero.
The news was first announced earlier this morning by FightHype.com, which coincided with meeting pictures released on Twitter late last night.
Berto and Judah were most recently promoted by Lou DiBella and Main Events, respectively. The new signings increase the TMT roster to seven including Billy Dib, Yuriorkis Gamboa, Andre Dirrell and allegedly Floyd Mayweather, who is rumored to seek another fight in November upon being released from prison this weekend.
These moves should dispel any remaining doubters about the seriousness of this venture. This is quite the collection of names for a promotion that’s barely two weeks old.
If Mayweather does indeed try to get in a fight before the end of 2012, we may end up seeing one of the most stacked pay-per-view cards in years. Can you imagine the likes of Gamboa, Judah and Dirrell filling out an undercard? 50 Cent boldly proclaimed he wanted to make a card of several main event worthy fights. With these moves we have no further reason to doubt the man.
The Twitter “beef” with Oscar De La Hoya aside, TMT is off to a great start.
