50 Cent says Floyd running away from Pacman

MANILA, Philippines – The conflict between former friends Floyd Mayweather Jr. and 50 Cent took an ugly turn when the two engaged in a bitter word war in social networking site Twitter.

The “Twitter war” began when 50 Cent announced the other day that he has already left “The Money Team”, an outfit he established with Mayweather aimed at promoting boxing fights.

The promotion has signed several boxers including featherweight champion Yuriorkis Gamboa, Australia's Dib and super middleweight boxer Andre Dirrell.

"TMT (The Money Team) IS OVER. The Money team is no longer a team. So it's SMS Promotions. That's it. That's all," 50 Cent said.

“SMS” is the name of the rapper’s headphone product line.

“I move the fighters to SMS Promotions 'cause the other half of the money team didn't put up [their] MONEY$," said 50 Cent (Curtis Jackson in real life).

Mayweather responded through his Twitter profile by mocking 50 Cent’s SMS promotions.

He called the SMS Promotions, "Similar Mayweather Show," "Sister Managing Sports," and "Snakes Maneuvering Slick."

Mayweather also branded 50 Cent as a "male boxing groupie" whose "album sales have declined."

He also posted a photo of 50 Cent posing with him. The photo shows the rapper holding Mayweather’s money.

Mayweather’s caption says “Hold my money [expletive]boy.”
 
50 Cent fired back by claiming he got tired of hanging out with Mayweather because they were running scared of Pacquiao.

“I can't hang out with Floyd no more,I'm tired of running from manny pacquiao #smsAudio,” said the rapper.

50 Cent also claimed that Mayweather is not rich as everyone thinks.

“MONEY Floyd you know I have more MONEY then you.Al Haymen got you on a Allowance, you go broke every fight stupid. SMSaudio,” he said.
