Recently, the rap sensation 50 Cent, in a chat with Brian J. Roberts, addressed this point. He also came up with a cracking statement about why people dislike Mayweather.

He said, “So it’s okay for you to watch the fight. Nobody watch Floyd fight to see how amazing he is. They watch it for the opportunity to see him lose. Because they don’t like him, they don’t like him because everything he says is about money.”
