Floyd Mayweather Vs. Manny Pacquiao: 50 Cent Claims Boxer Is A Sissy

By Brian Ethridge, Posted: 03/01/13 12:06PM EST

Once upon a time not too long ago, rapper 50 Cent and pound for pound boxing king Floyd Mayweather Jr. were the best of friends. For whatever reason, that is no longer the case. Now the two rarely talk and seem to be feuding enemies.

The other day, 50 Cent was all over ESPN talking about Floyd Mayweather. The rapper was very critical of his former best friend and even said that Money May did in fact duck Manny Pacquiao.

"[Mayweather] did duck the fight [with Pacquiao], that's $100 million and you just left it," 50 Cent told ESPN's First Take. "I mean, for two reasons -- I think he concentrates on how much someone else is getting paid as opposed to how much he's getting paid and then I think he kind of sees himself in a space that no one else sees himself in, like he's so high on top of it that he shouldn't give some of other great fighters a chance to be in that position at this point."

During the time period when everyone wanted to see a super fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao, nobody was closer to Money May than 50 Cent. If the rapper claims the boxer was ducking Pacquiao, it is most likely true.

This further confirms the popular opinion that Floyd Mayweather was scared to fight Manny Pacquiao when he was in the prime of his boxing career. Throughout the years, many fans believed that Money May was the reason this fight never happened, but there were always a select few who refused to believe it. Unfortunately, we have to believe 50 Cent above everyone else who claims to know what went on during negotiations.

Sadly, we may still see a Floyd Mayweather versus Manny Pacquiao fight someday. Unfortunately, it is too late and nobody cares to see it near as much as they once did.
