50 Cent is just one giant .

Ellerbe is right, too. These guys have no idea what they're doing and Arum will take them to the cleaners (already has). These guys are clown shoes.

Also, RIP Manny Steward

I did think it was all a big publicity stunt.. But got me thinking why would Mayweather hook up with Rick Ross & MMG who everyone knows has beef with 50/G-unit lol

That was my original thought, but aren't all these guys childish enough to partake in a real-life beef such as this? And, isn't it sort of believable that 50 Cent, with his somewhat fledgling career, was looking to latch onto Floyd and become his business 'partner?'

The more I read about it, the more I believe it.

As for Manny, what a loss. I will always remember him as the little badass walking the Hitman into the ring for another KO victory. He is irreplaceable in the boxing world.

LOL these tweets are hilarious. 50 saying Floyd needs allowance from Haymon or he'll go broke, and Floyd saying he respects the shooters.

Don't think Floyd is trying to fight anytime soon, so let's enjoy this one while it last.

The Manny Steward thing was shocking. So abrupt. I didn't even know he was sick.

I wonder what Wlad Klitschko's going to do. Manny really stabilized his career.

This was his first fight at 135 and he already beat the champ. SO he should be at 140 for his next match.

very long read, but this is the most interesting part

Quote:
On May 20, 2012, a rumor filtered through the drug-testing community that Mayweather had tested positive on three occasions for an illegal performance-enhancing drug.

More specifically, it was rumored that Mayweather’s “A” sample had tested positive on three occasions and, after each positive test, USADA had found exceptional circumstances in the form of inadvertent use and gave Floyd a waiver. This waiver, according to the rumor, negated the need for a test of Floyd’s “B” sample. And because the “B” sample was never tested, a loophole in USADA’s contract with Mayweather and Golden Boy allowed the testing to proceed without the positive “A” sample results being reported to Mayweather’s opponent or the Nevada State Athletic Commission (which had jurisdiction over the fights).

In late-May, Pacquiao’s attorneys heard the rumor. On June 4, 2012, they served document demands and subpoenas on Mayweather, Mayweather Promotions, Golden Boy and USADA calling for the production of all documents that related to PED testing of Mayweather for the Shane Mosley, Victor Ortiz and Miguel Cotto fights.

The documents were not produced. There was a delay in the proceedings while Floyd spent nine weeks in the Clark County Detention Center after pleading guilty to charges of domestic violence and harassment. Upon his release from jail on August 2nd, settlement talks heated up.

On September 25, 2012, a stipulation of settlement ending the defamation case was filed with the court. The parties agreed that the terms of settlement would be kept confidential. Prior to the agreement being signed, two sources with detailed knowledge of the proceedings told this writer that Mayweather’s initial monetary settlement offer was “substantially more” than Pacquiao’s attorneys had expected it would be and an agreement in principle was reached soon afterward.

As part of the settlement, the Mayweathers and Mayweather Promotions issued a statement that read: “Floyd Mayweather Jr., Floyd Mayweather Sr., Roger Mayweather and Mayweather Promotions wish to make it clear that they never intended to claim that Manny Pacquiao has used or is using any performance-enhancing drugs nor are they aware of any evidence that Manny Pacquiao has used performance-enhancing drugs. Manny Pacquiao is a great champion and no one should construe any of our prior remarks as claiming that Manny Pacquiao has used performance-enhancing drugs.”

turns out floyd might be the one using peds after all. and if you read the 2nd part of the article, golden boy tries to cover up every time one of their fighters tested positive.
