50 Cent Speaks On The Comparisons Between Floyd Mayweather Jr. & Muhammad Ali, His Upcoming Album, Boxing Background & More [Video]

 

Video After The Jump

 

While out in Las Vegas lending support to Floyd Mayweather Jr. for his upcoming fight with Miguel Cotto, 50 Cent took some time out to talk with Elie Seckbach and a group of boxing reporters about a variety of subjects.

 

50 confirmed that his fifth studio album will be released in July, talked about his amateur boxing background and answered the often asked question regarding comparisons between Floyd and Muhammad Ali.

 

"I think {Floyd] is the equivalent to Ali," 50 said. "I think he is the Ali of our time, our generation. The difference is the actual messaging points. In that period Ali was a part of a movement that was a huge movement that socially made him someone different. They responded to him differently because he was willing to stand up for that in that time period. Without those issues going on it's pretty tough for you to be anywhere near in comparison to him," 50 added. "Hip hop culture is now pop culture, it's so broad. If you watch how many of the artists and people... how relevant [Floyd] is to that it says how big he is to the sport. He actually is boxing right now."

 

50 also talks about how he and Floyd became friends.

Ali: "What'd the Vietnamese ever do to me?" I miss that time....people cared. Now it's all about money. No offense to anyone, but --something is missing that used to be here. We need to get it back.

50 got it right about Floyd. He's the best. Numbers don't lie. Haters use Youtube for reference.

SHREVEPORT, LOUISIANA—When you listen to Brandon Seamster talk, you quickly forget he’s just a teen who recently graduated from high school. He’s wise beyond his years.“I grew up in an area where alcohol and drugs were around me, and I tried to stay away from that. I was the type of person that kind of saw it all for what it was worth,” stated Seamster. “I tried to go in the opposite direction. Before you can change anybody’s life you must change yourself.”And changing people’s lives is exactly…See More
