The war has begun.

Can you guys believe the shit that's going down right now between Floyd and 50 Cent ?

I'll share my thoughts later, but first, I want to know what you guys think about this whole situation.

Did you see it coming ? What do you think was the root cause ? How long do you think the feud has actually been going on ?

I think they bullshittin, just a publicity stunt

Yea, read about it automatically thought the same. Not gonna follow this shit and get sucked into whatever stunt they are trying to pull. If they end up making some good fights then great but if not quit talking get your act together and/or get the fuck out of boxing! (Both of them!!!((especially 50!!! The guy has always been nothing but hoe in every business he's been in)))

^^^This.

Whatever the case/beef, Fiddy is not going to out-gun "Money" when it comes to trash-talking, especially now that Floyd has opened up too, for as long as real gun-totting is not involved. The current scenario is more likely to make more money for Floyd, not 50, in this fight game anyway. I don't see 50 ever reaching critical mass with his promotional business to take advantage of this kind of beefing show, and he's no threat to Floyd. I'm that dismissive of 50's tactics this far...he reasons rather poorly, in my book. Not that Floyd is much better, but Al Haymon got his own back, always has.

And, further on trash talking, I find this one on the front page particularly hilarious, (IMG:style_emoticons/default/thumbsup_anim.gif) : Hold my money fvck boy - http://t.co/UjdyVP7w

Honestly I don't see Mayweather being all that relevant in boxing after he retires. If they don't improve the stable of fighters they have with Mayweather promotions its going to be a tough road ahead. Gamboa, Dibb, and Dirrell are more popular than Ishe, love, and Celestino Cabrera( whatever his name is), so SMS is a leg up so far.

Although its hard to imagine 50 being a powerful promoter without Floyd's name, if I had to choose between the 2 I would go with 50 for several reasons.
1. 50 is good at gaining investors(not spending his own money)
2. He has gotten more business's off the ground and made a profit.
3. He doesn't spend money the way Floyd does

I'm not taking either guys side in the little beef, I'm just wondering how effective TMT would have been if they were united. It sucks cause 50 may have burned a bridge with GBP now he has no choice but 2 take alliance with Arum. The sticking point that broke up TMT was Al Haymon, 50 wanted him out but not Floyd.
