Twitter Recap - 50 Cent's 2nd Annual Birthday Basharoo

50 Cent's Birthday Bash Boxing Blow-Up
Twitter Recap
By Alex Pierpaoli


The Grand Theater at the Fox Tower at Foxwoods Resort and Casino hosted an ESPN Friday Night Fights Special Attraction last night in Mashuntucket, CT. Here is a chronological recounting of our live-tweets from ringside, made slightly more grammatical and a little less hashtaggie.


Bout 1 from Mashantucket, CT, from Las Vegas, NV, Ryan Picou faces off against Louis Cruz of Bronx, NY, 139 pounders.
Cautious first round from both men with Cruz landing bolts to body & head, not a lot of contact but Cruz' round, no doubt.
Picou pressing matters but getting punished for it; Cruz using speedy counters to redden the face of Picou; 2-0 Cruz.
Cruz waiting on one punch or one speedy counterpunch that didn't come in a dull third round.
No idea why Cruz is waiting so much but it's awful to watch. Picou's trying but not getting past Cruz' defense.
We've got this 2-1-1 for Cruz but at least Picou is trying to make something happen. Cruz waiting on openings for counters.
Cruz landed several nice body shots but it's hard not to want to punish him for a lack of action, he's just not throwing while Picou is.
