50 Cent & Manny Pacquiao Start Boxing Promotional Company!

The report goes on to say that TMT Promotions, which just announced this past July, is no more, with the lawyers of  one TMT’s fighters reporting that their client will be repped by Mayweather Promotions after being told 50 Cent was no longer promoting bouts. But even more head scratching, it seems that initially the plan was for 50, Mayweather and Pacquiao were to form a company, according to Pac Man’s advisor Michael Koncz..

“50 Cent and I have been talking now for maybe the last two months. They approached us with the idea to form a promotional company. Initially it was going to be 50 Cent, Manny and Floyd. But right now I don’t think Floyd is going to be a part of it. I explained the idea to Manny. We already have a promotional company, MP Promotions, and we have already done three separate promotions from Top Rank…on a small scaler. I have to take the blame for that. I’m in charge of it. There is an element missing there, but I have so much to do with Manny – that I haven’t got that company to where I want it,” Koncz told BoxingScene.com.

“I think with 50 Cent, with his entertainment connections and his popularity there, combining that with Manny’s popularity and expertise in boxing – we can bring a new flavor to boxing – we can excite some young boxers and I think we can sign some top quality boxers. I spoke to 50 Cent tonight and confirmed that we’re going to go forward. Manny is coming here this weekend for other business, but we’re all excited about it. With 50’s influence in the music industry – we want to put a different flavor on the shows.”

Floyd Mayweather Pleads Guilty To Domestic Violence!

Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather will face $3,000 in fines and could be sentenced to between two days and 18 months in the Clark County jail after pleading Wednesday to one count of battery domestic violence and two harassment charges.

Mayweather, who seems to be a picking boy for frivolous  lawsuits, also conceded to a victory over a dispute with his homeowner association’s guard.

Mayweather’s deal also includes him pleading no contest next week to misdemeanor battery and paying a $1,000 fine for poking a 21-year-old homeowner association security guard in the face during a November 2010 argument about parking tickets on vehicles outside the boxer’s home in an exclusive, suburban Las Vegas community.

Arrest Warrant Issued For Floyd Mayweather Jr!




An arrest warrant has been issued for pro-boxer Floyd Mayweather.

The athlete has been in recent headlines for a number of issues including reports of domestic violence and a restraining order being placed against him.

Now police are on the hunt for Money Mayweather again, this time for a battery charge.

A security guard claimed that the athlete assaulted him when he used his finger to strike him in the face.

According to TMZ, a judge originally issued — and then immediately recalled a warrant for his arrest after a hearing on December 7.

Now after complaints from the prosecution that Floyd was receiving preferential treatment, the warrant has been reissued.

Mayweather faces six months in jail and a $1,000 fine if convicted.

Floyd Mayweather Squares Off w/ Officer Ricky In Vegas…

Floyd Mayweather was ready to rumble with a famous nemesis in Vegas this weekend, but just before a fight broke out, Diddy saved the day. It all went down at the grand opening of Vanity nightclub in the Hard Rock Hotel — which was hosted by Diddy. We’re told Floyd Mayweather rolled over to the party to see Diddy, when he literally ran into rapper Rick Ross.

Sources say one of the men “bumped” into the other man and their entourages immediately became “confrontational.”

But as things started to heat up, we’re told Diddy swooped in between the guys and calmed everyone down.

We called Mayweather’s camp for comment and his father, Floyd Mayweather Sr., told us there’s been beef between Floyd and Ross for a while because Ross has allegedly been, “talking s**t.”

We’re told both Mayweather Jr. and Ross eventually went back in the club and partied the rest of the night away without incident.

Calls to Rick Ross were not returned. No comment from Camp Diddy.

Mayweather Vs Pacquiao Fight Takes Bizarre Turn…

The chairman of the Nevada State Athletic Commission has ordered Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. to take immediate out-of-competition urine tests, even as the sides bicker heatedly over a drug-testing policy that threatens to scrap their scheduled March 13 mega-fight in Las Vegas.

Nevada Athletic Commission Chairman Pat Lundvall ordered Executive Director Keith Kizer to point Mayweather and Pacquiao to accredited drug-testing labs in the United States and Philippines, respectively, for tests that must be completed by Wednesday, Kizer told The Times.

The tests will be paid for by Nevada and are consistent with World Anti-Doping Agency guidelines, Kizer said.

“It’s a start,” Kizer said. “Whether it’s the end, I don’t know.”

Kizer was referring to the ongoing argument that the Mayweather and Pacquiao camps are engaged in over how to conduct drug tests. Pacquiao’s camp wants to submit two blood tests, one in January, another 30 days before the fight, and another after the bout. Mayweather’s camp, after consulting with the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency about its protocol, argues that the fighters should be subjected to possible random blood testing until the first bell.

On Tuesday, Mayweather’s camp issued a prepared statement saying they’ve already made major concessions on deal points, including the weight limit and gloves, and were hopeful Pacquiao would agree “that many different substances and procedures can only be detected by blood testing.” Team Mayweather contends that Pacquiao had blood drawn just 14 days before his May fight against Ricky Hatton.

Mayweather’s statement also noted Pacquiao won’t agree to mediation on the subject by someone as respected as Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.):

“Team Mayweather … is still open to the earlier discussions of having both parties work out a mutually agreeable understanding of the testing, which would be conducted by a mutually-agreed-upon agency.”

“… As Floyd has already stated, he does not have a problem with the random procedure and will be under the same requirements as Pacquiao. It is simply hard for him to understand why there is reluctance on Pacquiao’s part to agree to do the same.”

“Food For Thought: Conversations w/ 50 Cent”, Talks BISD & Beef With Hot 107.9, @ Floyd Mayweather’s Mansion & Before I Self Destruct The Movie [10mn Teaser]…..

50 Cent doesn’t make empty boasts. When the Queens rapper proclaimed, “I Run New York” on “I Get Money off his third LP, “Curtis,” he meant it wholeheartedly.

Still, the general consensus is that Jay-Z rules the big apple. But, to let 50 tell it, there’s only one king and he’s not from Marcy. During an upcoming episode of “Food for Thought: Conversations with 50 Cent,” the media assassin, Harry Allen simply asked, “Why is Jay-Z widely considered king of New York, and not you?”

“There’s not another artist in New York City that generates more interest than 50 Cent,” Fif told Allen. “If we go international, Jay-Z is Beyoncé’s husband. He became more popular and relevant based on the work that Matthew [Knowles] made Beyoncé do.”

In addition to Allen, the episode also features Hot 97 radio personality Angie Martinez and sports journalist Stephen A. Smith holding conversations with Fif on a wide range of topics, including his epic SoundScan showdown with Kanye West, what he learned in his relationship with Vivica A. Fox, his new CD, “Before I Self Destruct” and his income drop according to Forbes Magazine. Serving as interviewers, Allen, Martinez and Smith also held conversations with Jay-Z for the series’ premiere back in September.

In related news, 50 is set to co-host 106 & Park with Rocsi for a three-day run starting this Thursday (November 19). He’ll then return the following Monday (November 23) and Tuesday (November 24).

“Food for Thought: Conversations with 50 Cent” premieres Thursday November 19 at 7:30 PM on BET.
