The boxing promoting rapper 50 Cent goes in on boxer Billy Dib after the Aussie fighter alleged that the Jamaica, Queens Hip Hop mogul owed him over $1 million.
The 30 year old boxer signed a three year contract with Fif’s SMS Promotions and claims that Mr. Jackson has yet to pay what was owed.
“We have no promotional ties, and thank God I’ve finally gotten away from 50 Cent,” said Dib, during a press conference to announce his latest fight in Sydney this week.
“My career was skyrocketing, things were going amazing, and then unfortunately — and when I say unfortunately I really do mean unfortunately — I signed for 50 Cent, who basically knew nothing about the sport of boxing. And I really believe that it’s from that point, because when you get promised something and it’s not delivered, that disheartens you a little bit.
50 responded on Instagram, stating,
“The truth is Billy Dib is an ungrateful fighter who was deemed unwatchable by premium networks like Showtime and HBO when I met him.”
The truth is Billy Dib is an ungrateful fighter who was deemed unwatchable by premium networks like Showtime and HBO when I met him. Floyd was mad at me for signing him in the first place. With a record of 35-1 (21 KOs), Dib must have fought 21 cab drivers in Australia because Evgeny Gradovich with a record of 15-0 (8 KOs) beat the shit out of him, despite taking the fight on a month’s notice. It’s no secret that the level of competition and talent, fighting in America is the highest. The best fighters in the world come here to fight. 8 Months later, I put Dib on the Manny Pacquiao undercard for the rematch with Gradovich. He got knocked the fuck out. I can only set the fight up…I can’t fight for you, punk! I didn’t take a dime of your money. They call me a lot of shit, but never a thief. #EFFENVODKA #FRIGO #SMSAUDIO ANOTHER ? SHIT HEAD
