Thurman vs. Guerrero

Man Vs Ghost: Robert Guerrero Gets A Tune-Up

50 Cent Has Filed For Bankruptcy For SMS Promotions, But…

(50 Center lowered to the boxing ring while rapping; via) The schadenfreude is pretty heavy Tuesday after 50 Cent filed for bankruptcy for his boxing promotion company, SMS Promotions.
