50 Cent's promoter application received in Nevada, meeting in November

50 Cent is still applying for his promoter's license in Nevada, but under the name SMS Promotions, and without Floyd Mayweather's involvement.

50 Cent, whose TMT Promotions project fell apart before it could even start, is keeping his eyes on the boxing game, and has decided to apply for a promoter's license in Nevada, filing under the name SMS Promotions, and without the involvement of Floyd Mayweather.

50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, has a license in the state of New York already, and will almost certainly be granted the same in Nevada. He will meet with the commission in November.

"Floyd Mayweather's name is not mentioned, and he has changed the name of the company to SMS Promotions," said Kizer, who expects the application to be the subject of the NSAC's mid-November meeting.

"We will have a big meeting in mid-November. Nothing is set. We probably won't know the exact date until early November, but it will probably be around Nov. 15."

It was expected that Jackson and Mayweather would co-run TMT, with others involved, but their falling out led to the demise of that company. Jackson still has Yuriorkis Gamboa under contract, as far as anyone knows, and could be looking to move quickly so he can get himself involved with the Pacquiao-Marquez IV card on December 8 as an official promoter of record for Gamboa, who is rumored to be returning on that show.

50 Cent has recently had meetings with Manny Pacquiao and Top Rank, and attended the Chavez Jr-Martinez show in Las Vegas on September 15.
