Those of you who weren't taking 50 Cent, Floyd Mayweather and TMT Promotions seriously may have to ease off of that attitude now, as Fight Hype reports that Andre Berto, Zab Judah, and Celestino Caballero are all signed with the new promotional company.

About 11 days ago, it was reported that 50 Cent had started a new promotional company, TMT Promotions. Immediate response was interesting -- some saw the potential upside, some thought it would end up just a vanity company, some figured maybe it would just be a way for 50 to cut in on Floyd Mayweather fights and make some money.

But we now have a fighter stable that includes Berto, Judah, Caballero, Andre Dirrell, Yuriorkis Gamboa, and Billy Dib, and most likely, Floyd Mayweather himself. That's an incredible start. the last time a promotional company even came close to starting with this sort of firepower, it was Golden Boy Promotions. Golden Boy was initially laughed off, too, you might recall. And now, all these years later, it's one of the two biggest promotional companies in the U.S.

50 Cent has stated that he wants to bring back loaded cards with interesting fights. The way they're putting together this roster, that seems very possible. This is legit stuff. This is no joke. We've got a new major league player in the American fight game, and TMT Promotions is moving fast.

I say welcome to the party. Things are heating up right now.
