50 Cent - Boxing

Before 50 Cent became a household name in the rap world, he led a little-known career as an amateur boxer. Growing up on the gritty streets of South Jamaica in Queens, 50 took up boxing as a way to keep out of trouble. While the claims of him having had competed in the Junior Olympics during the ‘80s remain unproven, there’s no question the man has a profound fascination for the sport. In fact, back in 2012, he — in collaboration with pro boxer Floyd Mayweather, Jr. — became a licensed boxing promoter for his new company TMT or The Money Team. Although he has steadily continued to expand his team by signing young talent, maybe 50 should trade his bling in for some boxing gloves. He’s got the physical attributes to go pro. The only question is how would he hold up mentally?
