If you have forgotten 50 is also a boxing promoter.
How will boxing promoter/rap star Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson celebrate his 39th birthday?
By promoting a July 2 fight card headlined by a junior lightweight world title elimination bout between Mark Davis and Michael Farenas, of course.
Jackson, whose birthday is July 6, is promoting his birthday bash card for the second year on ESPN2’s “Friday Night Fights,” although this year’s show is on a special Wednesday night edition of the series. The card will take place at the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut.
In the co-feature, former featherweight titleholder Billy Dib will move up in weight to junior lightweight and face former featherweight title challenger Alberto Garza in a scheduled 10-round bout.
