50 Cent shows off his boxing skills – claims he can beat McGregor
Rapper 50 Cent is pretty well-known to dabble in boxing to some degree and in this video, we see some of his skills in the sweet science on display.
In the video we see 50 alongside close, personal friend Floyd Mayweather Jr. doing some bag work and he looks pretty good. But bags, as we all know, much like bricks, don’t hit back.
50 Cent recently made news by making some ridiculous comments that he believes he can beat Conor McGregor in a street fight. This all started when the rapper appeared on show Watch What Happens Live and was asked if he could beat McGregor in a fight to which 50 replied:
“In the street? Yeah! C’mon, he weighs 150 pounds, man!”
Now, in 50’s defense, McGregor did make some derogatory comments towards him first during the MayMac world tour which probably rubbed him the wrong way and started this feud.
Nevertheless, if he really believes he can beat McGregor in a fight in any way shape or form he is sorely mistaken and it makes you question if he has ever mixed it up with a real professional fighter before.
Professional fighters, especially elite level professional fighters like McGregor, are going to be head and shoulders above your average Joe in skill level and ability. Fighters like McGregor put everything into their fighting ability/training and a rapper who simply dabbles in boxing won’t stand a chance, be it in the ring, the cage, or ‘da street.’
