 Our Ringside Twitter Recap
By Alex Pierpaoli

As is our tradition here, if we covered a fight live and tweeted details from ringside we like to post a recap later for any of you anti-social media types. Here is a chronological recounting of our live-tweets from ringside, made slightly more grammatical and a little bit less hashtaggie.
You can follow us on Twitter here

Bout 1
Bakhram Murtazaliev just imporved to 10-0 (8) after blitzing Robson De Assis of Brazil, dropping him & prompting a stoppage at 1:14 of rnd 1
Bakhram Murtazaliev of Grozny, Russia stops Robson De Assis of São Paolo, Brazil at 1:14 of Rd 1

Bout 2
former Middleweight, Super Middle & Light Heavyweight Champ Iran Barkley is working in the corner of Romon Barber of Kansas.
LeShawn Rodriguez of Shirley, NY facing off against Romon Barber of Wichita. Middleweights, 6 rounds.
Rodriguez looks 2B laying the groundwork 4 a stoppage Barber was on his feet through the 1st but looked like he got worst of some body shots.
Barber is certainly trying here, winging punches and hanging in there but he's being outgunned and outclassed. Rodriguez up 2 to none in rds.
Romon Barber goes down under a fussilade of short hooks 2 the head and body. Ref. Mike Ortega counts him out at 1:15 of rd 3 Rodriguez by KO.
LeShawn "Lightning" Rodriguez moves to 7-0 (6) while Romon Barber drops to 7-16 (6). 5 bouts to go here at #RisingStars.
The Blade!! Iran Barkley takes a bow

Bout 3, welters, 6 rounds, Enriko Gogokhia, 148lbs, of Oxnard, CA versus Joaquin Delarosa, 149lbs of Victoria, Mexico #RisingStars
Big first round for Gogokhia, he looks like he could end this at any moment.
seconds into round 2 Gogokhia scored a knockdown. Ref. Mike Ortega lets it continue but Gogokhia had DeLaRosa hurt and finishes him at 1:27.
Enriko Gogolhia improves to 6-0 (3) with this stoppage of Joaquin DeLaRosa, welterweights (

Bout 4, Kevin Asmat, 128lbs, of North Bergen, NJ, versus Rafael Castillo Rosendo, 122lbs, of the Bronx, NY, 4 rounds, feathers #Risingstars
that was a very evenly matched 1st round. Rosendo is making his pro-debut and he is not the least bit intimidated here.
Rosendo doing most of the pressing and landing, Asmat trying to fend him off.
Asmat controlled rnd three. He needs this last round to get a draw in my opinion. Rosendo got the worst of some excessive officiating in 3rd.
wow, that was a fun fight. Huge final round for Asmat. No knockdowns but he nailed Rosendo repeatedly with clean shots in final seconds.
The scorecards are all identical 39-37 x 3 all for Kevin Asmat who improves his record to 3-1 (2). Rosendo backs into the pro ranks at 0-1

Bout 5, @Cassius_Chaney of New London, CT versus Jon Bolden of Brooklyn, NY 6 rounds, heavyweights
Chaney is down after two chopping right hands... it continues...
tough first round for @Cassius_Chaney but he recovered well and scored with several hard uppercuts in close in final minute. #RisingStars
Ref. Danny Schiavone kinda yells at the fighters every time he breaks them
Chaney rocked again, and it was ruled a knockdown cuz the ropes held him up. Huge uppercut from Bolden did the damage.
@Cassius_Chaney hurt Bolden in the final seconds of round 2. Not enough to swing it in his favor but Bolden went to his stool hurting.
Chaney had a decent third but may have given it away laying on the ropes in final minute. He's way down in points after 2 knockdowns.
the score here could be 30-27 for Bolden after 3. That's a deep hole to climb out of for Cassius Chaney.
big left hook from @Cassius_Chaney seemed to rattle Bolden.
Bolden looks pretty gassed-out here. Cassius Chaney won the fourth round. He's going to need to turn up the pressure here.
After suffering a knockdown early in the round Cassius Chaney battles back against Jon Bolden in the final moments of the second:
I saw it even at 57-57 but if ringside judges gave Chaney the 3rd round he'll remain undefeated. Good test 4 him @ this stage of his career
here's the scorecards... after 6, all three judges saw it 56-55 x 3 all in favor of @Cassius_Chaney who moves to 11-0 (5) 
@Cassius_Chaney says last night he dreamed his opponent was going to charge him & drop him and it happened. But he got right up & came back

Lots of background noise here but Cassius Chaney tells us he dreamed...

Bout 6
Crespo comes to the ring to the music of the Late James Brown, The Big Payback! This is his chance at revenge & redemption!
Nate Green comes to the ring with undefeated prospect @KOKINGROSA and is wearing the pink ribbon for breast cancer awareness on his trunks
here we go... #ElmCityWar
Crespo got caught with several hard lefts from the southpaw stance of Green but it was a close 1st. Green won it. Both guys a bit tentative
1st minute of Green-Crespo: ( 
Looks like Green is bleeding pretty heavily. He was cut last month in a bout in Puerto Rico and that may have just reopened
Green really digging at Crespo's body. Crespo needs to pick up the pace. 
The cut over Green's eye is in a bad spot & there was some urgency in his fighting in that second. Crespo landed harder in 2nd. 
Green just landed a great right hook but Crespo walked right through it. 
Crespo just lost point on a dumb infraction. He reached over his own head to smack at Green in a clinch & Ref. Schiavone didn't care for it
I have this 30-26 for Green going into round 4. 
Green is bleeding here but it doesn't seem to be bothering him. Crespo needs to rally. They may stop this...due to the cut
They seem to have halted it due to the cut. We're going to the cards it seems.
Was the cut caused by a punch or a butt? Did referee Schiavone ever tell us? Not very clearly if he did cuz we missed it.
There seems to be a little bad blood still simmering here between the camps and this finish didn't help
well, this announcer has told us that all three judges had it the same, all for Nate Green who remains undefeated but the scores? don't know
Tough, dissatisfying result. Interestingly, all they completed this time was 4 rounds, the same distance they went 6 years ago. #ElmCityWar

Main Event, Elvin Ayala of New Haven, CT versus Vaughn Alexander of Saint Louis, MO 10 rounds, middles #RisingStars
Elvin Ayala looks to be in pretty great shape here tonight and he's giving Alexander some wrinkles but the Missourian should be up 2-0
Ayala is jabbing very well here. Alexander beating him with short harder shots but it's Ayala who's busier.
Alexander landing well to the body in round four.
Alexander's nose looks to be badly broken and bleeding. His mouth is wide open. Ayala may have done it with one of many, many jabs.
Alexander definitely throwing punches with bad intentions in that fifth. He's gotta be swallowing lots of blood. His nose looks crooked.
Vaughn Alexander fighting through what looks to be a badly broken nose. Ayala reluctant to press the action (
Ayala starting to press the action here in the seventh. Landed a hard uppercut to that battered nose.
Holy crap!! a huge right hand from Vaughn Alexander makes Ayala's legs go rubbery and down he goes. Ref. Ortega waves it off.
a mini version of Louis vs. Conn here. Ayala was opening up, trying 2 do more while Alexander was bleeding but he opened himself up too much
Alexander via TKO 7, ref. Mike Ortega stops the bout at 1:42. Vaughn Alexander improves to 11-0 (8) while Elvin Ayala drops to 30-9-1 (13)
That's it from here, folks! Our ringside wrap-up will be up a little later! Thanks for all the follows and RTs! #RisingStars
