For those of you who are annoyed by boxing's impeccable credibility and constantly growing relevance, you'll be glad to know that non-heavyweight champ Floyd Mayweather wants a new career as a rapper.

Mayweather says he wants to become a rapper instead — and change his name to Money. The fighter, 30, who knocked out Brit Ricky Hatton last month, plans to ditch his “Pretty Boy” ring name and work with US rap star 50 Cent. He bragged: “When you talk money, you talk Mayweather.”

Sure why not?  If 50 Cent has taught me anything, it's that rapping consists of looking menacing and talking shit you don't back up.  So all Mayweather has to do is stop backing up his trash talk and he'll be a huge success.

This story would have been so much better if Floyd has announced his intention to become a raper.
