Floyd Mayweather has addressed his ongoing feud with 50 Cent during a media day press conference.
“I think it is safe to say that I was his real friend but he wasn’t my real friend,” Mayweather says, according to Andreas Hale’s report on AllHipHop. “A lot of times, because of our upbringing we tend to not be loyal or happy. And when we’re not happy, we don’t want to see other people happy.”
Mayweather said he wishes Fif well despite their ongoing spat.
“I wish 50 Cent nothing but the best,” Mayweather says. “I don’t know if he’s still making music. The last time I checked he was a boxing promoter, but I still wish him nothing but the best.”
Last month, 50 challenged Mayweather to read a page out of a book for money. Mayweather believes that money should go elsewhere.
“I was thinking about something when you asked me about 50 Cent,” the boxer says. “If you really want to donate money, how about you donate money to Michael Brown’s family? I shouldn’t stop you [from donating money to charitable organizations]. Our company has been donating hundreds of thousands of dollars to different organizations for years without looking for the media attention. The best thing for 50 Cent to do is to donate the $750k to Michael Brown’s family.”
