Is Floyd Mayweather a Harry Potter Fan?

The origins of the ongoing Floyd Mayweather–50 Cent beef are too convoluted to retrace here. All you need to know is that Floyd was taking shots again this week, and this morning 50 Cent responded with bombs. Because while we can all debate 50’s current relevance, it’s always important to remember that Floyd Mayweather is pretty much illiterate.

Via 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 fucking up.

There have been plenty of excellent interpretations of the ALS ice-bucket challenge, but this is our new winner — even after 50 screwed up in the video and called it the ASL challenge, which sounds like a creepy game from the AOL-era Internet. 50 wins regardless. The only question is whether it ends with an extra $750,000 going to ALS research. Guess that’s up to Floyd.

Also, 50 Cent’s backyard looks pretty nice!

Also, if Floyd needs any Harry Potter recommendations, Grantland’s Mallory Rubin is always ready to help convert a muggle.

It’s a wonderful world out there.
