We Asked 50 Cent If Mayweather Should Fight Pacquiao Again

Fif has a real opinion.

Floyd Mayweather versus Manny Pacquiao was the most-anticipated fight of this generation and while most mega fights usually end up with a rematch it doesn't look like we'll be getting a MayPac2.

Though Floyd initially said he'd give Pacquiao another go after his unanimous May 2 victory, he has since back tracked and his boy 50 Cent doesn't think another fight makes much sense either.

"I don't think that there's a rematch in order," 50 told MTV News on Tuesday, when we went to interview him and the cast of "Power" for the television series' upcoming second season which begins on June 6.

After Mayweather's victory, Pacquiao complained of an injured shoulder -- a complaint that offended Floyd. "If you lost, accept the loss and say, 'Mayweather, you were the better fighter,'" the boxing champ told Showtime in an interview that aired days after the match.

Pacquiao has since had surgery to repair his shoulder, but Fif doesn't believe that an injury warrants a second-go at the fight.

"I think that we've seen fighters hurt themselves in the fight to the point that they gotta fight with one arm. And they don't necessarily create the rematch because he threw his arm out," he told us. "When he says that he was hurt, I didn't see anything that would make you think that he was hurt prior to the actual fight or during the fight... He wasn't throwing one hand more often than the other."

50 does acknowledge that a Mayweather/Pacquiao rematch would generate a lot of dough, but it isn't all about the money. Casual fight fans were disappointed with the match because of the lack of action.

"It's obvious, it's huge business. $200 million dollars... in 36 minutes ," 50 said. "I don't think with the response that he got from the actual fight, wasn't a real positive response following it. People weren't jumping up and down like, You gotta see it again."
