Famed boxer Floyd Mayweather recently spoke to The Sun for an article called “Gloves Are Off” where he dove into his long yet complicated relationship with 50 Cent. During the interview, Mayweather claimed their friendship took a hit after Mayweather refused to the television mogul 50 percent of his company.
Evidently, that didn’t sit right with 50 who promptly offered a response via Instagram alongside three screenshots of the article in question.
“I’m not the marketing campaign champ, keep my name out your mouth,” he wrote in the caption. “Damn somebody read this for champ i don’t fuck wit you, you don’t fuck wit me. OK.”

In the original interview, Mayweather questioned 50’s logic for turning his back on him.
“You can’t hang out with me every day for years then all of a sudden if I don’t give you half of my company you’re like ‘you’re dumb, you’re stupid, you can’t do this and you can’t do that,’” he said. “But if I can’t do all these things, why are you hanging around with me? That’s all I’m trying to add.
“If I’m such a person that doesn’t know certain things, and I’m not that sharp, why you want to be around with me every day?”
50 and Mayweather notoriously trade jabs on social media and are often relentless in their pursuit to clown one another. During a February interview with Hot 97, the Get Rich Or Die Tryin’ legend suggested Mayweather would need to step in the ring soon to feed his lavish lifestyle, despite putting the gloves down in 2017 following his victory against Conor McGregor.
“I think he got to right now because the money’s gone,” he said. “It’s fight, get the money, spend the money, fight. With the lifestyle that money’s gone. Trust me. Now it’s like if you call him he’ll be at your local nightclub because he needs that action right now.”
Then last August, Mayweather outlined why 50’s rap career had “ended” via Instagram.
1. You tried desperately to revive your career by going head to head with Kanye West and got dragged publicly, taking a unanimous decision loss,” he wrote in part. “2. Jay Z been killing the champagne game with Ace of Spade selling worldwide at premium prices for well over a decade, while Curtis got a bottle with a cheap chess piece on it that taste like shampoo.”
