50 Cent Now A Promoter

The boxing world has a new promoter in 50 Cent  whose latest venture, SMS Promotions, now holds promoters licenses in Nevada and New York.

SMS already has fighters including Yuriorkis Gamboa, Andre Dirrell, Billy Dib and Celestino Caballero on its roster.

“I love boxing and have always been a big fan of the sport, so it feels especially great for me to be involved with the game at this level,” 50 Cent said.

SMS’ first bout is scheduled for Dec. 8, when the company will co-promote Gamboa’s bout on the Pacquiao-Marquez IV undercard. The fight will be produced and distributed by HBO from the MGM Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
