ESPN’s "Friday Night Fights" will feature an IBF title fight between featherweight champion Billy Dib (35-1, 21 KOs) and undefeated challenger Evgeny Gradovich (15-0, 8 KOs) in a 12-round main event at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Conn.
50 Cent, who promotes Dib, was at ESPN’s headquarters in Bristol, Conn., on Thursday afternoon to talk about boxing, his music career and what's ahead. He spent a few minutes with Playbook.
You live just down the road in a mansion in Farmington, Conn., but you've never been to ESPN?
This is my first opportunity to do this. What do you guys call this? A car wash, right?
Let's first talk about that house. You've been trying to sell it for years. It's 48,515 square feet with 19 bedrooms and 19 full bathrooms. And you started out asking $18.5 million. You lowered it to about $10 million. What's the status?
I haven't been to that house much. I travel a lot. I probably should take it off the market. I have family living there. They love riding their three-wheelers up and down the block. You know the street is '50' Poplar Hill Road? Marshall Mathers [Eminem] wrote on the stop sign on the street. I might just modify it and do some different things with it.
