At its monthly meeting on Thursday, the Nevada State Athletic Commission approved a promoters license for 50 Cent and assigned officials for the fourth fight between Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez, who meet in a welterweight showdown on Dec. 8 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
50 Cent -- Curtis Jackson is the real name of the rap star -- intended to promote under the company name of TMT Promotions -- The Money Team -- with good pal Floyd Mayweather Jr. However, they had a falling out after Mayweather did not come up with the share of the money that Jackson said he had promised to put into the company.
So last month Jackson applied for the license under the name of his new company, SMS Promotions, and his application was approved in a 5-0 vote of the commission, as long as he provides three more pieces of information to the commission, which had already received an extensive application packet.
