50 Cent needs to beef up his promotional stable with new talent

50centBy Allan Fox: Last night, promoter 50 Cent saw his only champion in his stable IBF featherweight champion Billy Dib lose his title to challenger Evgeny Gradovich by a 12 round split decision at the MGM Grand at Foxwoods Resort, in Mashantucket, Connecticut, USA.

Hopefully, 50 Cent isn’t kidding himself about how one of the judges ruled the fight in Dib’s favor by a 114-112 score because Dib deserved to lose on all three cards, and you can make a good that he lost every round from the 3rd round.

50 Cent needs to start scouting out new guys to add to his SMS Promotional stable because the current guys that he has may not be the answer. 50 Cent has super middleweight Andre Dirrell, Dib, and Yuriorkis Gamboa. Dirrell and Gamboa are good fighters, but both of them have spent a lot of time outside of the ring lately, and you can imagine that this could be a continuing trend for both.

If Dirrell and Gamboa keep fighting once year or fighting every other year, then that’s not a good deal for 50 Cent and his promotional team. He needs to sign some top fighters that are willing to get in the ring and stay busy. Dib is a decent fighter, but the writing is on the wall with that guy that he doesn’t have the talent to be a belt holder.

50 Cent has the money to go out and sign top fighters like Golden Boy Promotions and Bob Arum of Top Rank. However, he might need to hire a CEO to do the heavy lifting for him because they need someone with some experience and a maybe a good salesman to try and pick up additional fighters. Gamboa and Dirrell may not pan out, and Dib has probably gone as far as he’s going to go.
