Grammy award winning rap star 50 Cent is on the verge of creating a promotional company with boxer Manny Pacquiao reports BoxingScene.com. The move is particularly controversial because of 50 Cent's previous relationship with Pacquiao's rival, Floyd Mayweather, Jr.

"50 Cent and I have been talking now for maybe the last two months. They approached us with the idea to form a promotional company," Pacquiao advisor Michael Koncz said. "Initially it was going to be 50 Cent, Manny and Floyd. But right now I don't think Floyd is going to be a part of it."

Mayweather was released from prison on Aug. 3
