For the last few days, 50 Cent and Floyd Mayweather have been entertaining the idea of competing against each other in a potential boxing match, but it seems the Power star has had a sudden change of heart.

On Wednesday (Feb. 3), the “I Get Money” lyricist announced the showdown was over before it could even get started, adding a little flex amid his statement. “The fight is off because Floyd can’t read 2 paragraphs of my New York Times bestseller (Hustle Harder Hustle Smarter) on IG live,” he captioned a photo of his latest book.

Days ago, 50 displayed a different energy when he said he was willing to fight the professional boxer in a celebrity boxing match.

“I’d fight Floyd (Mayweather),” he told Big Tigger during a recent interview with V-103 Atlanta. “I don’t think I could make weight though. … Or he’d just have to let me not get down to 150. I tried I looked like a homeless person. I could make it down to probably, like 180.”

The weight concerns, however, posed no issue to Mayweather — who is getting ready for an upcoming showdown against Paul Logan. On Wednesday night (Feb. 3), the boxing legend took a break from training and his grandfather duties to hop on Instagram and accept 50’s challenge.

“This year I will focus on several exhibitions. I will have an exhibition in Tokyo, Japan again,” he penned his caption. “Of course, the one with Logan Paul and I; and if Jake Paul can get past his next opponent Ben Askren, I will have an exhibition with him as well. I also heard that 50 Cent would fight me but claims I’m too small. If he wants to lace up at the end of the year, we can do an exhibition then. I don’t care about weight class with any of these guys. The Paul brothers will make great money with the events, but with 50 Cent, it has to be ‘Winner Take[s] All.’”
