It looks like 50 Cent and Floyd Mayweather have put their feud behind them because the rapper has said that he's going to be betting a lot of money on the boxer beating Manny Pacquiao.

While interviewing with Power 106's The Breakfast Club, the "In Da Club" rapper revealed he was so confident in Mayweather that he would be betting $1.6 million on him.

"Champ's gonna smoke him. It's gonna look like it was pumped up for no reason," he said.

As for why he wants to put down such a large sum of money, he explained, "I've been thinking this out. Like wait, I gotta make a real bet because he's focused right now."

That's a lot of faith to have in one person!

Their very public fight has seemingly been put to rest, at least enough for 50 Cent (real name Curtis Jackson III) to risk this kind of money! The G-Unit member previously had accused Mayweather of not knowing how to read and even went so far as to challenge the boxer on Instagram to read one page out of Harry Potter. Making matters even worse, Jackson tried to make the challenge "easier" by swapping Harry Potter for The Cat in the Hat.

Fiddy captioned his Instagram video, "Floyd will you except my ALS/ESL CHALLENGE: I will donate $750k to a charity of your choice, If you can read a full page out of a Harry Potter book out loud without starting and stopping or f--king up. lmao."

Instead, the boxer fought back by tweeting pictures of checks showing how much money he makes...and it's a lot of millions!

Jackson addressed the fight in the interview, admitting that the two had since talked out their issues.

"I can get mad at him. We can both get angry when we're not speaking to each other," he explained. "…When we're not communicating with each other, it gets crazy."
