Not long ago, rapper 50 Cent and boxer Floyd Mayweather wanted to make money together. Now they’re being offered money to fight.

Allhiphop.com reports that a team of money-rich investors has approached Mayweather and 50 Cent, offering each a cool $5 million to fight in a boxing match against each other. The investors – billionaire Alki David and business partner Damon Feldman – want 50 Cent and Mayweather to fight three two-minute rounds in headgear and protective gloves in Las Vegas. The bout would be shown live on FilmOn.com and BattleCam.com – both sites that David has invested in.

The real-life feud between Mayweather and 50 Cent is relatively new. The two initially planned to go into the boxing promotion business together, but tensions arose between the two after Mayweather was released from prison on August 3. 50 Cent then elected to go into business with Manny Pacquiao – Mayweather’s chief rival in the world of boxing.

There is no word on yet on whether either party would agree to the fight.

fifty dont sweat daddys boy having a hissy fit because you took his toy.  Daddy's boy just cant stand not to have all the attention you would be smart to learn from this, he is a punk who loves controversy and has no loyalties except to blood.  No one gets along with him unless he controls the situation.

$5 million for what amounts to a sparring match who wouldn't do that

Floyd is a punk, but he is also an incredible fighter. Curtis would be made to look very silly and he can't have that image out there, not in his world.

I was about to say it'd never happen until I saw 3-2min rounds.  Heck, for 5 million I'd do 3-2min shootouts with 50 Cent!

Well Floyd at least has talent, even though he is a woman beating scumbag.   Curtis is just a waste of bullets.
