Not long ago, rapper 50 Cent and boxer Floyd Mayweather wanted to make money together. Now they're being offered money to fight.

Allhiphop.com reports that a team of money-rich investors has approached Mayweather and 50 Cent, offering each a cool $5 million to fight in a boxing match against each other. The investors - billionaire Alki David and business partner Damon Feldman - want 50 Cent and Mayweather to fight three two-minute rounds in headgear and protective gloves in Las Vegas. The bout would be shown live on FilmOn.com and BattleCam.com - both sites that David has invested in.

The real-life feud between Mayweather and 50 Cent is relatively new. The two initially planned to go into the boxing promotion business together, but tensions arose between the two after Mayweather was released from prison on August 3. 50 Cent then elected to go into business with Manny Pacquiao - Mayweather's chief rival in the world of boxing.

There is no word on yet on whether either party would agree to the fight.
