50 Cent Says Floyd Mayweather, Jr. "Ducked" Fight With Manny Pacquiao

50 Cent says that Pretty Boy Floyd has been avoiding a bout with Manny Pacquiao.

Former friend and business partner 50 Cent alleges that Floyd Mayweather, Jr. has been actively "ducking" a fight with rival champion Manny Pacquiao.

In a recent appearance on ESPN's "First Take" (via HHNM), 50 explained that Mayweather has been avoiding the fight with Pacquiao over money concerns. Although Fif said that Mayweather "isn't afraid," he believes that Pretty Boy Floyd is taking on lesser opponents for the easy paycheck instead of fighting a tougher fighter like Pacquiao.

"[Mayweather] did duck the fight [with Pacquiao], that's $100 million and you just left it,” he said. “I mean, for two reasons – I think he concentrates on how much someone else is getting paid as opposed to how much he's getting paid and then I think he kind of sees himself in a space that no one else sees himself in, like he's so high on top of it that he shouldn't give some of other great fighters a chance to be in that position at this point."

He continued, "He's not afraid of [Pacquiao] or any fighter. I just think its more of him saying, 'Who do I have to fight?'. At this point, it's more so of him finding who is the perfect opponent then him finding the toughest fighter to fight. I think when you go in the history books, you are doing it a bit differently. This is more business and making the right financial decisions. How do you stretch out how many wins on your actual record?"

Last year, Fif and Mayweather exchanged insults on Twitter, an incident that Fif later claimed was staged. Since then, 50 has been in talks with Pacquiao to create a crossover promotional boxing deal.

    I AM DONE DEFENDING MAYWEATHER.. through the years i believe all his side. But, it became too obvious in the end.I have never seen a Supposed to be great Fighter who would just give up A WBC world title just like that..just to avoid Pacquiao. like he has done for so many years...it's obviously fear.. and to keep defending him is ridiculous .. i'm a former fan, I am a proud Mexican American. I have been posting this all over the net. And there are not even one brave intelligent Floyd fan that could give a proper answer. .........If everyone from your own Profession, your own Circle, Your Own Race says you are a coward, You are truly a Coward!!. The very people who are supposed to watch your back are saying you are scared of Pacquiao. There is no amount of Fan's explanations, Excuses and statistics could ever save your shameful facade. . .American Boxing icons, experts and legends who confirms Mayweather is scared of Manny Pacquiao. 1) Mike Tyson 2) Roy jones jr 3) Larry Holmes 4) Marvin hagler 5) Bert sugar - greatest boxing historian 6) Michael Wilbon - espn 7) sugar Ray Leonard 8) Tim Bradley 9) Oscar dela Hoya 10) 50 cent - Boxing Promoter and best friend 11) Max Ledermann 12) Larry Merchant 13) Stephen A Smith -Converted Die hard Fan. 16) Evander Holyfield 17) Skip Bayless 18) so much more.... Now, show me anyone. or any list of boxing experts more credible than this. saying Floyd is NOT afraid to face the Greatest......America is known to be the home of the brave.. Then this fagg0t coward Mayweather came along and spoiled it for everyone..

  • Mayweather vs Guerrero

    Since the fight is on Showtime, Mayweather vs Guerrero is getting more promotion than it would have on HBO because CBS is a partner too. This will be entertaining to watch, I wonder how Mayweather will do since he hasn't fought in a while. I'm watching all the videos at http://Mayweather-Guerrero.org and Money May looks pumped!

    Mayweather stay making excuses about fighting Pac Man. Financially smart to duck Pac Man, but for the art of boxing, he's a bitch. "Let me fight the half-assed boxers instead of challenging myself to Pac Man." Win or lose, it would be a great fight (and a money maker). Pussy.

  • Anonymous

    It's not about money cause Mayweather would have made more than Pacquiao for their super fight. Bottom line, he got cold feet, even though if they fought today I think Mayweather may have a shot cause Pac lost his last fight, and isn't as invincible as he once was. It would still be a great fight in theory.

  • foreal

    so mayweather is pulling a roy jones jr.... fighting nobodies and then talking a lot of smack.

      50 has more money than floyd! you really trying to discredit the man for having one of his fighters on a friday night fight? you gotta build from somewhere.

    Anybody notice how 50 just can't seem to keep friends?

    • 50 Pence

      It's a cut throat business and it's difficult to find true friends who are loyal to you anyway and not just out for themselves. The success that 50 had and continues to have creates alot of fake, jealous people who would stab you in the back in a minute and as for Floyd he would argue with his own shadow.

    Can't y'all, see that he's fake, the rap version of TD jakes Prophesizing on your CDs and tapes Won't break you a crumb of the little bit that he makes And this is with whom you want to place your faith? I put dollars on mine, ask Columbine When the Twin Towers dropped, I was the first in line Donating proceeds off every ticket sold When I was out on the road, that's how you judge Hov, no? Ain't I supposed to be absorbed myself? Every time there's a tragedy, I'm the first one to help They call me this misogynist, but they don't call me the dude To take his dollars to give gifts at the projects These dudes is all politics, depositing checks they put in they pocket, all you get in return is a lot of lip And y'all buy the shit, caught up in the hype Cause the nigga wear a coofie, it don't mean that he bright Cause you don't understand him, it don't mean that he nice It just means you don't understand all the bullshit that he write Is it "Oochie Wally Wally" or is it "One Mic"? Is it "Black Girl Lost" or shorty owe you for ice? I've been real all my life, they confuse it with conceit Since I will not lose, they try to help him cheat But I will not lose, for even in defeat There's a valuable lesson learned, so it evens it up for me When the grass is cut, the snakes will show I gotta thank the little homie Nas for that though Saving me the hassle of speaking to half of these assholes And I'ma let karma catch up to Jaz-O, whoa I'm back before you had a chance to miss me My mama can't save you this time, niggas is history Who you know flow vicious as me? Yet so religiously, that's why they call me Hov I get the spoils cause the victor is me (me, nigga) You're an actor, you're not who you're depicted to be The street dreamin, all y'all niggas living through me I gave you life when niggas was forgetting you emcee I'm a legend, you should take a picture with me You should be happy to be in my presence, I should charge you a fee I'm Big Dog, Glenn Rob, listen God you a flea And the little homey Jungle is a garden to me What's the problem B? You not as hard as me Nigga hard as we, nigga R O C, nigga That's why they follow me, they feel my pain and my agony, nigga I won't rest till you on one knee You want war then it's war's gonna be, nigga Until you on one knee, you want war then it's war's gonna be, nigga ~JAY-Z

    What happened to the PED test excuse? Pac took a L by KO is he gonna take the fight now? May will only fight bums or greats that are on the way out. Not buying the purse excuse either, Mayweather's nice but his BS does not make a case for an already dying sport.

  • IMhO

    @anon 2- its easy 2 say manny isnt a rival champ now that he got knocked out by marquez, but 2 years ago it was at a point where it would of been this generations ali/frazier or tyson/holyfield and mayweather robbed boxing supporters everywhere of that fight. he will forever have a blackmark on his name for that..when i think of mayweather i dont think undefeated i thnk how he ducked his biggest opponent ever at a time where it was boiling thru the boxing world...lost half my respect for that man (can lose all respect when ur undefeated though)
