Ahead of the May 2 match between boxers Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao, rapper 50 Cent has placed a $1.6 million bet on a Mayweather victory.
In a radio appearance Tuesday morning, 50 Cent said Mayweather would be able to handle Pacquiao easily, adding that, "It's gonna look like [the fight] was pumped up for no reason."
50 Cent said Mayweather "can't lose."
Mayweather, 37, is 47-0 with 26 KOs after his defeat of Marco Maidana in September. Pacquiao, 36, has a 57-5-2 record with 38 KOs after beating Chris Algieri in November.
50 Cent said in early February that he did not think the fight, slated for the MGM Grand on the first Saturday in May, would occur, saying Mayweather was "scared to death" of Pacquaio.
