Here is a chronological recounting of our live-tweets from ringside, made slightly more grammatical and a little bit less hashtaggie.

On a rainy Saturday night in the Connecticut
Rances Barthelemy defended his IBF Junior Lightweight title with a 12 round
shut-out snore over Argentina's
Fernando Saucedo in the main event from the Fox Theater at Foxwoods Casino in Mashantucket,
CT. It was the 2 supporting bouts that stole
the show from the headliner, especially co-featured Junior Middleweight titlist
Vanes Martirosyan, who successfully defended his WBO Inter-Continental
Championship against Willie Nelson, while New Haven,
CT's own Bad Chad Dawson was upset by Tommy
Karpency in the Light Heavyweight special attraction bout that rounded out the
triple-header aired live on Showtime.
