This is interesting.

During an episode of The Fat Joe show, Joe revealed that he was offered a whole $10 million to fight 50 Cent.

While discussing the Nate Robinson and Jake Paul fight which went down last weekend, Joe says, “I’m talking about my brother Nate Robinson. How many of you would have the heart to get in the ring at a Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. fight and fight one-on-one against another guy,” asked Joe in a video. “And so, yeah, he caught the L. But it’s so much heart of a lion to go in there and fight and I don’t think people are giving him the respect they should. And then a lot of people on social media, meaning you, just like to talk shit. Basically, you wouldn’t do the shit yourself.”

He shared that he wouldn’t even get in the ring when he was offered. “I wouldn’t do it. When I had beef with 50 Cent, people were, like, fake offering me $10 million, $5 million, to go fight 50 one-on-one. I’m not scared of 50. I’d fight him for free half the time! But to get knocked out on TV, it’s tough and I don’t think we’re giving [Nate] his respect. He got knocked out, I get it. It was explosive, it was crazy. I get it. But you can’t keep trying to kill our people that got the courage to entertain us.”
