Floyd Mayweather Responds To 50 Cent's Reading Challenge

"He gotta raise the stakes," Mayweather said to a fan asking about the challenge. "Do he still make music? I ain't heard him in a while."

After 50 Cent challenged Floyd Mayweather to read a page from a Harry Potter book for a $750,000 donation to a charity of the boxer’s choice, Mayweather responded in an off-the-cuff interaction with a fan filmed as a part of Showtime’s All Access pre-fight documentary series.

While in Las Vegas leading up to his rematch against Marcos Maidana, Mayweather was asked about 50 Cent’s challenge as he walked through a casino.

“Hey, I heard 50 Cent challenged you for 750 thousand,” a fan says in the video. “That’s all he challenged me?” Mayweather responds. “He gotta raise the stakes. Let him know. Do he still make music? I ain’t heard him in a while.”

In a separate response posted to Twitter in August, the boxer showed off an image of two checks worth more than $70 million.


Showtimes’ recent All Access special documents the lead-up to the Floyd Mayweather vs. Marcos Maidana match scheduled for September 13. In May, Mayweather beat Maidana in twelve rounds by majority decision in a welterweight championship fight. Speaking about their rematch on All Access, Mayweather predicted another victory. “I’m gonna stay at the top and continue to control boxing,” he said. “When you’re speaking boxing, you’re speaking Mayweather.”

    "Floyd may be an arrogant ego maniac but he aint corny enough to start doing Minstrel shows with Curtis." I cant see Floyd putting on wigs, making skits, and thirsting after another man through social media but Floyd will hype the shit out of a fight to sell them Pay Per Views and tickets.

    Floyds people just challenged Curtis to a 750K contest, 50 has to have his name on a single in the Billboard Top 200 and he can win 750K for the charity of his choice.

      dont have to read the above comment to know that bruthadee guy is going on about white people and 50 cent AGAIN, what a joke. dat nigga is the biggest 50 cent groupie on HHDX if you think about it!

    • Anonymous

      White people LOVE to see Black people tear each other down and humiliate each other which is why so many of them adore 50Cent and view him as a good boy, on the flip side they revile Lord Jamar. Any time a Black man is publicly attacked for his lack of intelligence or illiteracy it helps to promote the stereotype of the ignorant Black male and in this case the dumb Black athlete who has the physical ability to pick a ton of cotton but lacks the mental ability to read a childrens book. 50Cent has built an empire off dissing, dogging and throwing dirt on Black people and while it has made him millions and the pet negro of white investors it has made him unpopular with his own peers to the degree that a career saving collab is highly unlikely.

    Maybe Floyd should challenge 50 to a ball pitching contest. I'm sure it would be funny watching both of them pitch a ball, and I am sure Floyd would beat him, considering 50 throws like a girl.

Won't fight a top fighter, everyone wanting to see him fight Manny, dodges the top fights, got beef with 50, T.I and Nelly? more like he trying to stay relevant. He can't read worth shit, he's like Chris Rock's joke about Stevie Wonder, He rich, but write out the monetary amount he has, he won't know jack shit. when all his people leave him after his career is over, Bitch is gonna sign on the wrong contract and lose his shit, count on it.

    The music response is always a great one that people run with. Why does that matter so much to fans? You are the same broke muthafuckas at home speaking on who is platinum or not...shit is always funny to read. And speaking of reading, is Mayweather going to accept the challenge for his charity, or just use his World class defense to dodge this too?

    But seriously, does he still make music? I haven't heard a 50 Cent song since like 06, 07ish. I think the last time I saw him was on a bet movie where he had dreads.

      who cares if you think hes washed up, everything g-unit has put out has been quality street music, no corny flavor of the month features, no weak ass r&b hooks, straight NY hip-hop shit.

    • @Lothario

      That's the most backward fucking bull shit I've heard in a LONG time. Typical Curtis fan. Dude's washed up garbage, and you're probably in your 40s working at a Dairy Queen. There are other rappers out there not named 50 Cent. Good one's, in fact. One's that are REAL. Most real hip hop fans hate 50 AND the garbage on the radio. Dumbass...

    • Lothario

      That's because all you listen to is the gay shit on the radio that pop culture feeds you. 50 is the only East Coast rapper who has been consistently putting out dope NY Hip-Hop. He drops something every damn month. Pay attention nigga.

  • 614grind

    Both of them are getting some needed promotion off of this "beef". We know 50 feeds off of it and I guarantee Floyd welcomes it with a uninteresting fight on the horizon.

    • Anonymous

      Floyd doeent need promotion his fights sell millions of Pay Per View buys and sell out arenas which is why he can get 40 million for one fight. 50 needs promotion since his albums keep flopping and none of his songs make the charts.

    Lol, Floyd looks super wack he's even more wack if he chopped Tiny lol, coward still won't fight Manny, SMS boxing lookin weak too, especially after Gamboa's last fight hopefully Kirkland still fighting on SMS, I think fif needs Floyd to help him in promotions for SMS and Floyd don't need fif giving him additional negative publicity, these two better make up and do sum boxing business cause jay z bout to get into boxing promotions and neither one of them like jigga man

      Floyd tried to make the fight with Manny happen but Manny and BoB Arum didnt want it so now all the Floyd haters who despise the athletic arrogant Black athlete are spreading the lie that Floyd is dodging a guy who just got KOd and knocked unconscious in the boxing ring by a guy that Floyd already beat.

    2 more fights and Floyd will retire, the question is were will he will be ranked all time. Sugar Ray Robinson, Muhammad Ali, Joe Louis, Henry Atmstrong, and Jack Johnson make up most people's Top 5 with a sprinkle here and there of Marciano, and Duran depending who you ask but if Floyd goes undefeated and wins these last three fights with his swan song being a defeat of Pacquiao then you have to consider him at the very lest Top 10 all time. 46 Wins 0 losses 26 KOs Champion in 5 divisions, 4 weight classes and 10 world titles and the current Pound for Pound #1 ranked fighter in the world. Even with a miracle win form Maidana you still looking at a loss at 37 compared to 29 when Ali lost to Foreman or Sugar Ray Rob losing to Lamotta at 40-0 so we witnessing history.

      regardless, the one question of this era is pacquiao, so if he were to fight him, itd cement his place.

      You said Floyd had a "problem" with a list of boxers but none of them knocked him down or beat him or even hurt him. No Floyd would not have beaten SRR at 145 we can agree on that along with Armstrong, Pryor would not have passed a drug test in this era, Duran would have frustrated himself and loss, Leonard would have been interesting, he would have beaten Sanchez, Hearns I can't call it, him and Sweet Pea would have been a goodie at 145 but Floyd would have prevailed, Chavez would have lost. How can you say De La Hoya could have EVER beaten afloyd when you saw how foolish Pernell made De La Hoya look when Pernell was way past his prime and De La Hoya was at his peak? Floyd has beaten them all, never been knocked off his feet or seriously cut or lumped up, he is the greatest boxer of this era and easily better than Roger or Floyd Sr.

    • Mario Toney

      I disagree with him being that high.He is on of the great fighters of this era however boxing is not strong as it used to be plus the weight classes are different and the promoters dont do business with each other stopping too many great matches.If Floyd had a problem with castillo, judah, Delahoya, maidana.....i sure do not see him beating Ray Robinson, henry armstrong, aaron pryor, duran, ray leonard, salvador sanchez, hearns, pernell whitaker, chavez,....not sure he would of beat prime delahoya or even tito,mosley ....Floyds best opponent prime was diego corrales...lol please cut it out...during boxing prime years he would not be a contender...these kids nowadays want to be mma or rappers...hardly 20% of the gyms even open anymore in the inner cities...notice how we rarely even win gold medals at olympics anymore in boxing....Mayweather is maybe as good as his dad and uncle...no more

    I was watching Showtimes All Access special and it was a good one, they showed Floyd and Maidana in the gym, with their families and just having fun, its cool to see the human side of these gladiators. Floyd seemed happy, he was spending time with his kids and his ladies and traing hard, as he's walking down the street some idiot paparazzi asked him about 50 Cents and Floyd gave a quick response and kept right on walking into the party. The 10 seconds of energy he expended into this foolishness should be enough to give 50 Cents an erection and sooty his broken heart.
