The promoters at Celebrity Boxing tell The Blast they want a celebrity to officiate the boxing match, but it needs to be someone who is willing to learn the proper rules and procedures for refereeing a fight.
We’re told their ideal choice is rapper 50 Cent, and Celebrity Boxing promoter Damon Feldman says he thinks they have a legitimate shot at landing the hip-hop star, telling us “He knows boxing and would be a firm referee,” adding, “We’re shooting for him.”
It’s not out of the question for 50 to participate in the event, plus jumping into the boxing world may inspire some more verbal jabs with Floyd Mayweather.
The other stipulation? We’re told 50 would have to wear a standard boxing ref bowtie. As we reported, the fight is scheduled for November in Atlantic City!
