Not everyone is sold on the idea of Floyd Mayweather fighting Manny Pacquiao.

While there’s been talk that Mayweather and Pacquiao might finally square off, rapper 50 Cent is pessimistic about the chances of seeing the much-hyped superfight. 50 Cent’s reservations — expressed to Sports Illustrated’s Chris Mannix this week — stem from his opinion of Mayweather.

Mayweather and 50 Cent used to be friends. Now, they don’t see eye-to-eye. The beef began a few years ago and involved a Twitter exchange in which 50 Cent criticized Mayweather for ducking potential opponents and Mayweather criticized 50 Cent for the rapper’s declining record sales.

Meanwhile, Mayweather and Pacquiao continue to grow older. If the two never fight, it might because no one cares anymore.
