Unbeaten Floyd Mayweather Jr. gets out of the Clark County jail this Friday after having served 63 days for his domestic abuse charges. Mayweather Jr. will be ready to start working with his friend 50 Cent (Curtis Jackson) on their new promotional company TMT (The Money Team) Promotions.
50 Cent and Mayweather Jr. want to change how boxers are promoted and are looking to help the fighters as well putting together fights that boxing fans actually want to see. The sport has become frozen in the last 20 years with many promoters not wanting to make fights with rival promotional teams for various reasons and protecting their fights by matching them against fluff opponents to build up inflated resumes. TMT Promotions wants get away from all of that by putting together the best fights possible aimed at the fans.
50 Cent told the heraldsun.co.au “We want to change boxing. The goal initially is to create a company by fighters, for the fighters, which breaks the traditional vibe of promoters taking advantage of fighters. We’re going to change the demographic also, appeal to the younger demographic.”
