As always, it's always a matter of time before the pieces start to fit the puzzle http://www.fighthype.com/news/article13399.html

Great read to end my night shift at work and if the case, kudos to Floyd for showing loyalty and stayin true to what he's always said about loyalty. If I were in that position (as tempting as those figures look and sound), I'd do the same. Easy. Al Harmon didn't make Floyd the fighter he is, but he does have a lot to do with making Floyd the rich fighter he is. It would look sooo suspect if Floyd had all those positive things to say about Haymon, to go and turn his back on his mentor, as to say (power phrase) "even though you've done a lot for me, I don't trust". It makes more sense now why 50 said that he (Floyd) has a good heart, but don't think that he's smart. Translation "I respect your loyalty, but my plan of how to get this money is better than what you settled for".

I respect both Floyd & fif, but this one is a 1+ for Floyd if you ask me.

That letter seemed bogus, not sure if I believe everything that is going on with this situation. Floyd did acknowledge that 50 was getting involved in boxing. Plus Floyd was all hype at the BET awards when 50 took the stage


This is how Floyd should throw Tommy Smalls off his bus http://m.worldstarhiphop.com/video.php?v=w...q85Q0SUro3x38mr

floyd did the right thing, me personally i wouldn't do business with 50 cent at all. the way he treated young buck and his g-unit crew shows you what hes all about. also that letter was terrible. how can a nigga take you serious with handwriting like that, it like he wrote that shit while he was on a deserted island smh
Hotsauce

You can't bring Young Buck into this, Buck spent all his money then wanted to bitch and complain about the company and boss. 50 is real generous about giving out good music deals and paying people accordingly unlike diddy and Jay. 50 is grimy but not the type to hide and steal money from the people he earn with.

Honestly 50 seen an opportunity to make cash for him and Floyd without the middle man (Haymon) but Floyd was loyal to who got him to the pinnacle in his career. Something funny is going on with this whole situation so I'm not sure what's going on

I dont even know what to make of this, and truthfully, who knows what's really going on.

One thing Floyd NEEDS to do, is cut all of these motherfuckers off, ASAP! These 20 and 30 people that he's supporting (family and all), need to beat it. This is EXACTLY how people go broke.

Stuff like this makes me hate rich people, really. All of this gambling, over-the-top fancy lifestyle, court and lawyer fees, that gold digger fiance, that crazy money-hungry baby mama, plotting yes-men, and age...are all seeming to catch up with Floyd.

Cut all of these people off, shoot for your last few big paydays, and make the most of it. He's made too much money and it's too late in his career, for all of this to be going in. Bad enough that we have to watch Manny get jerked around, and now Floyd is catching it as well.

As we all know, when people aren't careful with their money and runs out it, the first complaint usually starts with them feeling like they aren't getting paid for their true worth. We never make what we feel we're truly worth.

What he's been doing with Haymon and GBP thus far, has indeed made him one of the highest paid athletes as of late, so why mess it up? That $80M+ that he made over the past year, sure is enough...when you dont have 30 people around you with your hand out.

I look at it like this. If I was going to do something big with CShel cuz he brought big things to the table, then he makes his cut, and I make mine, then it's on to the next one. I know exactly what it is and exactly what it ain't. I would be open to doing big things in other places, but we would run the numbers. Cshel would remain my go to guy...we been doin it big all this time. I wouldn't cut em off because of more potential earnings, I would want to figure out how we get more dough together. And between fights, maybe once or twice a year, we going to hang out with Julio Jr. to git on some of that stiiiiiiickyyyyy...and Miguel so we can mess with some boooooorrriiiqquuaaaaassss.....

At the end of the day, there's more to life than money, especially when you already made 80 mil in a year. I would have endorsement deals coming out of my ass though....when you're undefeated and the highest paid athlete, you can endorse anything. And the only thing I would hand out is a low % of interest. I would gather though, that alot of the people he takes care of, especially if it's under Mayweather promotions, is a writeoff.

I would definitely take care of my immediate family though....I wouldn't cut them off. They would have to work for it. Build businesses, get them training, and give a performance based check....except moms though.

Lol! Sounds like a nice plan you got there Big D! Im down.

As far as me saying that he should cut family off, Im talking about the ones who suddenly couldn't take care of themselves when he got big. Not only them, but the "other" family members, like cousins and shit.

I know some people are close to their cousins, but from upbringing and experience...cousins dont make the cut. They're just as grimey, they claim to be close to you when its convenient for them, but most of the time, they're the family member that you have the least communication with...depending on the situation.

Immediate family, I'll take care of them all day long. Im not sure how many endorsements Floyd has, maybe they're right in my face and I totally overlooked them. Glad to see how you put it for immediate family..."they would have to work for it". Great idea!

Haha....yeah, I have about 2 out of 20 that would. The rest wouldn't have my number, they would have to e-mail me. Then I'll mark them as SPAM.

Such a strange, strange situation.

Most of us on this board always looked at the Floyd - 50 Cent love affair with a different set of eyes.

I don't care how deep a "friendship" is between 2 guys. Best friends turn into the worst of enemies and nothing kills a friendship like bitches or money.

I'm glad that Floyd at least appears to be standing by Al Haymon. Yes, there is ALWAYS more money to be made, but the smartest people are those who understand that cutting off the golden goose's head isn't the best way to get rich.

As i know, floyd doesnt have any endorsements, i Know this because my cousin always brings it up when we would argue about mayweather/pacquiao. If he doesnt then he is definitely slacking in that regard. As the most famous boxer now, he should be pushing merchandise, he coulda had a shoe brand or something by now lol.

Besides that, that letter was alil crazy. if this is real, he has the potential to make 100 $ a fight and they want him to fight for the next few years, so he can possibly make 1 billion$ before he retires?..Money is definitely talking, but is it true that haymon and goldenboy been pocketing some of his money?.. If the letter is true, I understand why floyd was looking hurt when i seen his interview. all this ish is going on but he never talks about it, thats his problem , atleast if he didnt hide anything the truth would set him free. But i would definitely run my own shit, he's a grown ass man, whoops people's ass around the world for $$, shoulda been looking after his own $$ along time ago. I would give it a few more fights for 100 mill each and then Cashout.

Pacquiao, bradley, Khan, The ghost, cotto-2, Alvarez....600 mill minimum?

If this means i get to see floyd fight more than once a year then i'm all for it.

very interesting..

a fool and his money are soon parted...

apparently, floyd is no fool. but he should not have gone public with this letter. some things are better left unsaid. here's the thing...floyd was getting a small fraction of what he was worth when he was with toprank and james prince. al is the one who helped him get out of that situation which is why bob arum doesn't like him. floyd went from making a small percentage to making a much bigger percentage. that comes at a cost though. the same with the delahoya fight. i said a long time ago...when that fight was signed...from then on out...floyd would NOT make money without gbp getting paid too. it's how the business works. and if anyone thinks al haymon is helping floyd for nothing...don't be fooled. he's a harvard educated business man. he's not making moves unless it benefits him. floyd is doing the right thing by being loyal. yes, he can make more money by branching out on his own...he's that big now....but he will have to take on more risks. these are risks that fighters should not concern themselves with when they have more important things to focus on like not getting knocked the fuck out. al haymon has served him well. i'm sure he can always go back to the negotiating table to get a bigger cut of the money. if he feels he isn't getting what he deserves...then he should do so. as for al and gbp getting paid off of floyd... i view it as the price of doing business. he is the highest paid dude in all of sports. he should make his next moves his best moves and set himself up proper.

as for endorsements...floyd doesn't have any and he can thank himself for that. between his "slave wages" comment and his well publicized domestic disputes...he's done nothing to make himself attractive to any companies that would sponsor him. he seems to relish his role as the bad guy....what product would have him as its' sponsor?

Friends and business never really work out for eachs best interest, especially when both are at the top in their own lane.

I'm pretty sure Floyd is sponsored by grant, Reebok, and I remember him talking about some energy drink he was promoting like rockstar or redbull... I'm doubt he still does the energy drink since I've heard about it but as long as Floyd has been fighting he always wears Reebok and hes always promoting grant. He should def have more endorsements tho

i thought he had hp or some lap top producing company at one point. i remember the commercial with him and michael buffer. reebok was on board too...but i'm not sure if that's still on. more than likely...his contract with grant...which really isn't a big company...probably doesn't pay much.

I forgot about that HP thing... But the energy drink was rockstar, I remember him talking about it leading up to the Ricky hatton fight

Why are there 2 pages with #2 on them? This dude doesn't seem to be the sharpest knife in the drawer when it comes to spelling and grammar, so I was almost willing to dismiss the fact that there were two pages with #2 on them. For some reason, I just cant get past that part, something seems fishy about it....

Tell me about it. Maybe a chimp on a type-writer with a bifocal glasses and a cigar in his mouth, would've gave it a better run. Dude's dialogue in the letter just seemed suspect...people lose their shit when money is on front of them. Smh

Maybe some pages are missing from the letter. I noticed there was no introduction to the letter, it got straight down to business in an elementary way. I don't believe the hype I will continue to let this all unfold. For some reason I feel like the public is being played. Why? I'm not sure lol

I peeped that too...

Aside from the fact it looks like he wrote it on toilet tissue while taking a shit,.. it seemed rushed, almost like he was being chased by the cops, or very last minute type shit.. idk..

Another thing that got my attention was the "if you would just let me eat" part.. that statement alone speaks volumes of his intent I think

Sketchy to say the least
Franchize
Look, the stuff 50 said about Floyd seems true. He has way too many bloodsuckers around him. That said, with all the parasites, he's loyal. I dont get however how ppl entrust in 50 cent. Think of all his close relationships with celebs. They all end with him talkin shit about him publicly. I dont know what side of South Jamaica Queens he's from but my side doesnt promote that. My boys know, regardless of whether we are talking or not, we don't throw dont on each other's name. Period. If I have an opinion about you, it's between fam. 50 has been on every radio station in NY selling the same story abou Floyd. One time is tought love. Multiple times just seems like a publicity stunt for himself.

p.s. 50 Cent has a garden down the street from my mom with Bette Midler. He will literally collab with anyone to make money lol

Well worded! LMAO at the being chased by the cops part. These motherfuckers don't even try to be discreet about the fact that they're trying to leech on and fuck you of your money. I'm almost pressed to ask...what are these booty fly ass, no talent-having, pieces of sh*t, actually good at? *crickets chirping*

Agreed! 50 is just one of those dudes that you cant trust as far as you see them. Think about it though, his way of life may invite ridicule, but you have to admit, this motherfucker is still rich. Rich WITHOUT a bunch of leeches...something that I cant say about Floyd. People are fine when the money it coming, but once you cut it off, or they spend it all with none coming in...they turn on you.

That reminds me of that retard of a candidate, Herman Cain. Dude was smashing that financially illiterate, busy body, since the Tyson/Holyfield days...taking her on shopping sprees, paying for hotel rooms, taking her, giving her money, etc. AS SOON AS the money stopped, her mouth opened...needless to say, nothing but bad things came out.

I agree with how 50 cut everybody off (though he gave them chances to make something of themselves), but I dont agree how he goes on wax and puts Floyd's shit out there. Now that I think about it, that's EXACTLY what made 50 Cent....well, 50 Cent. Floyd may want to brace himself if 50 decides to open his mouth. LOL
Amandla
If I was inside and I got a letter like that it would head straight for the trash.

Floyd was smart enough to keep it.

A very useful tool and a great bargaining chip with Al Haymon.

So many rumours going around now Im thinking Haymon, Floyd and 50 are ALL cooking something up.

TMT HAS to mean something.

Dirrell, Berto and Judah...good names to handle in my opinion.
