50 Cent Will Fight Former BFF/Boxing Champ Floyd Mayweather

Once upon a time, not so long ago, 50 Cent and five-division world champion boxer Floyd Mayweather, Jr. were swept away on a whirlwind bromance that caught the imagination of… well, a couple people.

Then, tragedy: A week ago, a series of less-than-cozy tweets birthed "are they or aren't they?" feuding rumors. That beef seemed to sizzle out when 50 went on record earlier this week saying, "I'm sick of all this nonsense…. He just wanted some attention. Floyd is like a brother to me."

Now it's looking like 50 might've spoke too soon. The Queens rapper just announced he's more than willing to hop into the ring and pound his "brother" into the next world: "I hit that boy he will see a white light," Fif tweeted.

"I'll fight Him," 50 said last night. "Dec 14th is too soon. I would need time to get in shape." Naturally! He's probably gotten a little soft spending time with Oprah, after all.

So this tweet confirms the beef, right? Before you read into this too much—and forget that 50 will say just about anything to drum up publicity —check out his follow-up tweet. "You box now?" an incredulous fan asked. The reply: "If they want to give me 5 million, fool."

In other words: C.R.E.A.M.
