Rapper 50 cent is ready to show the boxing world that he needs to be taken seriously after it was reported that a November show run by TMT Promotions would feature Yuriokis Gamboa and Andre Dirrell.

It was only recently revealed that 50 cent, real name Curtis Jackson, would be launching the new promotional company with the help of undefeated American fighter, and good friend, Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Jackson has already secured a number of fighters to his promotional company in the form Australian IBF featherweight champion Billy Dib, Cuban Olympic gold medallist Gamboa and super-middleweight contender Dirrell.

Dib recently explained his decision to join up with TMT promotions as he looks to continue his impressive run of 14 straight wins.

"Now that 50 Cent and Floyd have started their business, they contacted us in Australia and asked us if we would come over and speak with him," Dib told Ring TV.

"50 Cent has basically flown us over here, and he showed us a lot of love. I like the sound of the company. I like the people that he has signed to the company. I'm really excited about the future and what the future holds for me in boxing with this company."

Gamboa is set to make his debut under TMT on November 17 when he is scheduled to face defending IBF super-featherweight champion Juan Carlos Salgado.

Dirrell, whose only loss came at the hands of Britain's Carl Froch, will also be in action on the same card when he faces Ireland's Brian Magee for the vacant WBA super-middleweight title.

The two fighters already listed as appearing on the exciting card prove that Jackson is out to prove that he can make a name for himself in the sport of boxing.

With Mayweather also likely to join the stable in some capacity, it seems the likes of Bob Arum and Oscar de la Hoya could have a new rival in the musician-turned-promoter.
