50 Cent Calls Out Floyd Mayweather To A Celebrity Boxing Fight

50 Cent has called out Floyd Mayweather but says he's not sure if he can make weight for a potential celebrity boxing bout.

The American rapper, 45, would fight the former pound-for-pound boxing king, 43, if he were to step back into the squared circle.

Mayweather has only had an exhibition contest against Japanese kick-boxer Tenshin Nasukawa since retiring from professional boxing in August 2017.

When asked who he'd like to face in a celebrity boxing match, 50 - real name Curtis Jackson - didn't hesitate and dropped Mayweather's name.

However, he's not convinced he can make 150lbs - claiming he could make 180lbs.

Appearing on V-103's The Morning Culture, he said "I don't think I could make weight though.

"I'd fight Floyd (Mayweather) if I could get down there. Or he'd just have to let me not get down to 150.

"I tried I looked like a homeless person. I could make it down to probably, like 180."

'Money' has never fought at a weight higher than 154lbs. He made the super-welterweight limit when he took on Miguel Cotto in May 2012.

For an acting gig in 2019, 50 weighed 160lbs after an extreme weight cut.

But it doesn't sound like he's prepared to make that sacrifice again, instead - offering to meet the retired boxer at 180lbs.

Mayweather, of course, has agreed to fight Logan Paul who carries a huge weight advantage.

So, Mayweather vs. 50 is not completely out of the question.
