Floyd Mayweather Posts Hilarious Comeback To 50 Cent Saying His Money Is 'Gone'

Floyd Mayweather has hit back at 50 Cent's claims that his money is 'gone' by posting a picture of his huge shoe closet.

50 Cent, real name Curtis Jackson, claimed last week that his former friend needed to return to boxing because he was running out of money.

The 42-year-old then took to Instagram and posted a photo captioned, 'This is just my shoe closet part 1' in an indirect jab.

Mayweather retired from boxing in 2017 after an inter-promotional match with Conor McGregor in which he won for the 50th time.

He did return in 2018 for an exhibition bout against kickboxer Tenshin Nasuwaka which he won comfortably.

Despite Mayweather being one of the richest athletes in the world, Jackson told told Hot 97 last week: "I think he got to [fight] right now because the money's gone.

"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."

Jackson and Mayweather were good friends for years but have recently fallen out publicly.

The undefeated boxer told NORE's Frinks Challenge per Urban Islands that he wanted to remain friends with 'Fiddy'.

"We could have stayed friends," Mayweather explained. "I never asked him to get a part of G-Unit or whatever he was doing, I just thought we just had a genuine friendship, that's what I thought, so it is what it is.

"I've been nothing but good to him. I'm a hundred man. I've been nothing but solid with him. I'm a solid dude man, and he know I'm a solid dude."

Jackson is also often credited for being the man who helped Dana White book Mayweather's blockbuster match with McGregor.

UFC President Dana White revealed back in January:

I felt the demand for McGregor vs Mayweather, felt it, I knew it would be big, so we started talking," White said. "I bumped into 50 Cent in New York, and he said, 'Floyd wants to fight your boy.' I said, 'My boy who?'

"He's like, 'The Irish kid.' And I'm like, 'He'll kill him,' because I'm thinking MMA. He said, 'We'll box him.' I said, 'You guys are crazy.' He said, 'He's serious. I'll call him right now.' And then that's how it all really got started. And then everywhere I went, it was all anybody asked me about.

"Then once I started to really feel it, that's when I started to take it serious, and I made an offer."
