Floyd Mayweather Says 50 Cent Should Be Donating Money To Michael Brown’s Family
As Floyd Mayweather‘s rematch with Marcos Maidana draws near, the pound-for-pound king of boxing has become increasingly more visible over the past couple of weeks. However, the hot button topic of the moment has nothing to do with the fight itself. Instead, whether or not Floyd Mayweather can read has come into question courtesy of 50 Cent‘s recent ALS/ESL challenge as well as an audio recording released by Power 105 with the boxer struggling to read a drop.
At a recent media day in Las Vegas, Mayweather addressed 50 Cent’s challenge to donate $750,000 to a charity of his choice if he can read a page out of a Harry Potter book.
“I was thinking about something when you asked me about 50 Cent,” Mayweather said while in the midst of discussing the situation in Ferguson, MO that left an unarmed 18-year-old African American male gunned down by a police officer. “If you really want to donate money, how about you donate money to Michael Brown’s family?”
The 37-year-old champion said that there was no excuse for 50 Cent to not put his money where his mouth is and make a donation to Brown’s family without the media attention.
“I shouldn’t stop you (from donating money to charitable organizations),” Mayweather continued. “Our company has been donating hundreds of thousands of dollars to different organizations for years without looking for the media attention. The best thing for 50 Cent to do is to donate the $750k to Michael Brown’s family.”
Will 50 Cent answer the challenge?
