Cape Town - US rapper 50 Cent is prepared to bet R19m on Floyd Mayweather to beat Manny Pacquiao in boxing history's richest fight.

The USAToday reported that the rapper had put his faith in Mayweather to beat the diminutive Filipino in their May 2 Las Vegas bout. Although Pacquiao outlined his tactics to beat Mayweather.

50 Cent, real name Curtis Jackson, appeared on radio station Power 105.1’s 'The Breakfast Club' show to chat about the upcoming fight and also the pairs public feud.

Mayweather, the richest sportsman in the world and Jackson exchanged blows on social media, resulting in a rather poor attack on the boxer's lack of reading skills.
