    Default 50 Cent's SMS Promotions Boxing company has gone bankrupt

    50 Cent’s boxing company goes bankrupt | Boxing News | Fightnews

    Think that might be the end of 50 in boxing. Maybe Yuriorkis Gamboa can begin fighting again because his talent is wasted being so inactive.

    Terrible shame, not sure why anyone would want new boxing ventures to collapse with how destructive the reliable heads like king and arum have been to the sport.

    It shows that it takes a lot more than a boat load of money to take over an industry. You need a real genuine knowledge of the industry and it doesn't seem like 50 had that when you look at the match ups he put his fighters in and the results as of late.

    Normally, I'd say that's a shame but 50 Cent walked into boxing with his eyes wide open. It seems like I remember Oscar saying something like 'Welcome to promoting, it's not as easy as it looks.' I appreciate the fact that Russell is a boxing fan, but he should have started much smaller.
    He tried to hook up with Floyd, you have to admire 50 Cent's boldness in trying to start at the top, but Floyd shook him off like a flea. Wonder how it will play out and if 50 Cent will give up on it?

    It's all about his civil suit. 500k doesn't make or break him but filing BK protects him. It was official 11 minutes before he was due in court for the civil suit, only in America can you get away with such transparent nonsense haha

    In the individual sense, he did his job i think . An inactive Gamboa was in with Crawford, and a blown out, legally troubled James Kirkland got his shot with Canelo. The problem is they both got beat like a drum and who else was there to fill out the stable and keep the ball rolling. I think the promoters game right now is a matter of too many lions and a shortage of zebra (fighters). Someone was bound to starve to death.
    They want your @$$ beat because upsets make news. News brings about excitement, excitement brings about ratings. The objective is to bring you up to the tower and tear your @$$ down. And if you don't believe that, you're crazy.

    I will repeat, this filing has nothing to do with his success or failure as a promoter.

    On FNF 50 cents was being interviewed and everything looked OK. The ESPN channel said that he had a genuine appreciation and love for the sport.

    Atlas said 50 Cent needed someone to help him pick the fighters. I assume he meant fighters with a future. I'm really interested to see if he sticks with it or bails out after the bankruptcy BS is settled.

    The guys name is 50 cents and he debuted with Billy Dib. Billy Dib! I mean come on.

    His biggest contribution was to educate us on the tragic lack of Mayweathers own. He might be better for it in the long run, get out early a bit ahead of a hole you cannot get out of. He'll be back. Just next time leave Dib in the car.

    How this guy even makes money from the utter crap that he calls music is a mystery to me.

    God is also Mistery to you, God, who created all flesh, e.g. You, from the utter crap.
    Crap you are, in crap you shall return.

    I would express common opinion: "F.ck it (the 50 cent, the 50 cent promotion and its crappy fighters...)"
