This Friday, promoter Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson ( SMS Promotions ) will stage his first solo boxing event titled "50 Cent’s Birthday Bash," live on ’ESPN Friday Night Fights’ from the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford.

 

One of 50 Cent’s most prominent prospects, Luis "Magic Man" Olivares ( 4-0, 3 KO’s ) from Arizona was set to face Puerto Rican Jonathan "Fafa" Perez ( 4-0, 2 KO’s ) but Olivares cancelled due to illness.

 

José Colón of Colón Boxing, who manages Jonathan Pérez and Javier ’El Chino’ Flores said: "The Magic Man used his magic tricks to disappeared on fight week. This fight was signed for 140 pounds but then I was told that "Fafa" looks too big. Later I was told if "Fafa" can drop two pounds ( 138lbs ), and now Olivares got sick on fight week".

 

Now "Fafa" will be facing Antonio Chaves ( 2-11-1 ) in a 4 round fight at the junior welterweight division.

 

ESPN Friday Night Fights show will broadcast the main event fight between undefeated North American Boxing Organization (NABO) and North American Boxing Association (NABA) light heavyweight champion Eleider "Storm" Alvarez ( 12-0, 8 KO’s ) vs former world title contender, Allan Green ( 32-4-0, 22 KO’s) and in the co-feature at 122lbs, former world champion Billy "The Kid" Dib ( 35-2, 21 KO’s ) will battle "Machine Gun" Mike Oliver ( 25-3, 8 KO’s ).
