50 Cent Registers New Boxing Promotion Team

Curtis Jackson is a busy man. Between his venture with Vitaminwater, his film companies, his Street King energy shots, and his newly released headphones, Jackson still finds time to release music as 50 Cent. With his next studio album, Street King Immortal , not out until November, 50 will turn his attention towards his new boxing promotion company -- TMT Promotions. Sports Illustrated reports that TMT (a.k.a The Money Team) has been registered and granted a license in New York, with Nevada on the horizon. The report also mentions the potential signings of two world class fighters -- former featherweight champion Yuriorkis Gamboa, and super middleweight fighter Andre Dirrell.  Both fighters have recently left their respective agencies and have been out of the ring this year.

50 Cent has a well-documented friendship with boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather Jr., who just began his 90-day jail sentence for a September 2010 domestic violence incident. Mayweather Jr. mentioned 50 Cent's potential involvement in boxing last April in the SI article:

“I think he’s going to be involved on the promotion side,” Mayweather told reporters during a conference call promoting his fight against Miguel Cotto. “We may even put him out there, let him fight on pay-per-view one time. So we don’t really know what the future holds, but he is getting involved with boxing.”

Unlike many of his peers, 50 Cent takes his non-music business ventures very seriously. With industry heavyweights (pun intended) on their side, The Money Team and their growing roster could very well become a mainstay in the ring.
