After a Twitter spat over the weekend that apparently turned out to be nothing more than a publicity stunt, undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather and his former best friend/rapper 50 Cent have been offered $5 million to fight each other by investors that include billionaire Alki David, according to AllHipHop.com.

Sure, the possibility of this actually taking place are slim-to-none, but if it were to ever take place it would be highly entertaining none the less.

The bout wouldn't be a normal boxing match despite Fifty's athletic build as Mayweather is an all-time great and would destroy 50 Cent under regulation boxing rules.

Mirroring more of a celebrity boxing-type event, the bout would be three, two-minute rounds with both Mayweather and Fifty wearing head gear and over-sized gloves.

The proposed bout would go down on December 14 in Las Vegas, Nevada if agreed upon, setting up the perfect venue for a bout that would garner much public attention.

Mayweather has been mum on his plans to return to the ring since being released from jail in early August. "Money" spent 60 days in the Clark Count Detention Center for a domestic violence incident that took place in 2010.

Mayweather even considering a celebrity match with 50 Cent would be a bad move career-wise, as he needs to focus on his real boxing career, not some made-for-TV circus-like fight.

Billionaire David has made a few proposals in the past, including the $10 million offer to rapper Drake and R&B artist Chris Brown to meet in a boxing ring after their nightclub brawl earlier this year.
