UFC Star Colby Covington Challenges 50 Cent To A Charity Boxing Fight

UFC Star Colby Covington Challenges 50 Cent To A Charity Boxing Fight

UFC star Colby Covington has called out rapper 50 Cent for a celebrity boxing match.

'Fiddy', real name Curtis Jackson, trolled Covington when he was badly beaten by welterweight champion Kamaru Usman inside the Octagon at UFC 245.

Covington had his jaw broken by the 'Nigerian Nightmare' in the title fight and the Get Rich Or Die Tryin rapper enjoyed it very much - taking issue with the vocal Donald Trump supporter's comments going into the bout.

"What has his family ever done for America beside serve in the Federal penitentiary?" Covington said of Usman.

Covington finally responded on the Ariel Helwani Show and challenged 50 Cent to a bout, adding that he would even tie one hand behind his back.

"I want to do a celebrity boxing match," the former interim UFC welterweight champ stated.

"I'm going to tie one hand behind my back and I'm going to fight 50 Cent. I'm going to put up $1 million of my dollars."

Jackson, a star of the hit US TV drama Power, has been involved in boxing and mixed martial arts as a promoter and even struck a lucrative deal with Bellator in 2018.

He challenged Conor McGregor to a street fight back in 2017, though it never materialised sadly.

Also on his appearance on Helwani's MMA show on Monday, Covington called Usman "the second best fighter in the world" and proclaimed to become welterweight champion in a year's time.
