50 Cent’s relationship with boxing champion Floyd Mayweather has been a rocky one. The one time friends turned rivals have gone back-and-forth on social media, but that interaction does not prevent 50 from publicly backing Mayweather in his upcoming fight against Manny Pacquiao.

50 and G-Unit on New York radio discussed the highly anticipated match.

“Champ’s gonna smoke him. It’s gonna look like it was pumped up for no reason,” said 50. When asked if he planned to bet on the fight he responded, “Probably like $1.6 million… I’ve been thinking this out. Like wait, I gotta make a real bet because he’s focused right now.”

50 also revealed he recently spoke to Mayweather in person in New York. He says the two later conversed by phone as well.
