Curtis apparently bailed on a scheduled afterparty to comfort the boxer in the hospital after his loss.
According to AllHipHop, 50 Cent blew off an appearance at Club Sinergee in Meridan, Connecticut after Billy Dib,Â an AustralianÂ boxerÂ he promotes,Â lost aÂ fight at the Foxwoods Resort Casino earlier Friday night.
Dib fights for Fif's SMS Promotions company, and theÂ IBF world featherweight championÂ lost his title to theÂ unbeaten Russian Evgeny Gradovich after a bloodyÂ 12-round split decision.Â
50's camp claimsÂ the New York rapper chose to accompany Dib to the hospital after the fight while he was beingÂ treated for his injuries. He was leftÂ withÂ a cut on the left side of his head a gash above his right eye.Â
The decision was met withÂ disappointment, but the night wasn't a total loss for promoters, as more than 500 people showedÂ up atÂ the club anyway.Â Security had been heightened in the area as a precaution.
