New York rapper 50 Cent is really all about the sport of boxing. The hip-hop veteran has helped contribute to the return of boxing in Atlantic City.
Last night, 50 hopped on Instagram with pics of himself alongside business developer Bruce Deifik in the popular New Jersey area.
Recently, Bruce Deifik talked about his intent to bring some excitement in the form of boxing back to the Atlantic City nightlife.
Atlantic City wants a piece of that action. Last January, developer Bruce Deifik bought Revel for $200 million, then he shuttered it, remodeled it and re-opened it as Ocean Resorts and Casino in June. A longtime friend of Deifik: Bob Arum, Top Rank’s CEO. “When I bought this property my thought process was that I bring professional sports back to Atlantic City in a very big way,” Deifik told Yahoo Sports. “I believe Atlantic City is the home of boxing in the United States. I’m a 30-year Las Vegas guy. I’m very respectful of the great fights they have had. But Atlantic City is the root of that. I want to have major championship boxing here.” (Yahoo! Sports)
Earlier this month, Fif lit up estranged boxing icon pal Floyd Mayweather Jr. with a trolling clip.

Last month, Mayweather fired off big shots at 50 about being worth less than his iced-out watch.
