Funny, very funny. But I'm still trying to figure put why would 50 go after an Al Haymon fighter after that dumb shit he pulled with Floyd. Hell will freeze over before he gets an Al Haymon fighter to sign to him. The lure of ESPN cards won't work on a fighter like Russel jr, who's closing in on a title shot and stardom
If 50 wants to really build his company, he should go after unsigned talent and up and coming guys. He'll have better success there then semi and already established guys. This isn't hip hop where you can just roam free and do what you want at any given time. He's going to have to put actual effort into this if he wants longevity as a boxing promoter.
And now I see why GB doesn't push Russel jr the way they push Broner. I used to see those two fight on cards together, then Broner just took off like a bat outta hell and Rusell jr stayed on contender status. Now that he says he's not signed to any promo company, I see why. GB has no incentive to make him a star since he's not signed to them...I thought he was with them but you learn something new every day
i heard that 50 is going after broner
