Famous rapper/promoter 50 Cent was in Panama City last weekend visiting WBA Headquarters and WBA executive vice president Gilberto Jesus Mendoza where they spoke of their plans in boxing. 50 Cent was presented with an authentic WBA belt and also a very expensive special limited edition WBA watch. “I am very happy, I didn’t expect such a big thing to be declared a world champion,” commented 50 Cent.
He later attended a fight card at the Roberto Duran Arena where he posed for photos and signed autographs for fans in attendance. Unfortunately his fighter Celestino Caballero lost a split decision in the main event.
