Any doubt on whether or not rapper 50 Cent and Floyd Mayweather's TMT (The Money Team) Promotions could succeed has been thrown out the window. The new kid on the block has added former champs, Andre Berto and Zab Judah to their ever growing list of boxers according to Fight Hype.

The addition of Berto and Judah brings the list of fighters TMT promotes to six, as Yuriorkis Gamboa, Billy Dibbs, Andre Dirrell and Celestino Caballero have also jumped aboard with TMT.

Although the current lineup is quite impressive, the biggest fighter in the boxing world, Mayweather himself, is speculated be added once he is released from jail on August 3.

With TMT being only a few weeks old, there is no guessing who else the promoting company will sign next after making huge waves early on.

When 50 Cent announced he was going to get into the world of boxing promoting, many doubted if he could be successful in a sport dominated by two companies, Top Rank and Golden Boy Promotions.

50 then had a heated Twitter war with Golden Boy's Osacar De La Hoya over comments made be De La Hoya about everyone wanting to be a boxing promoter (per ESPN), creating even more buzz on his arrival in the sport.

When it looked like the odds were stacked against them, 50 Cent and TMT now hold the cards and have a solid core to build off of, appearing to be a legitimate contender in the world of boxing promoting.
