Challenger Bobby Gunn expressed his usual enthusiasm, saying, “I wish the fight were today, that’s how ready I am. I’m so excited. Tomorrow is going to be a great night. I have about 50 people coming in on a plane right now, there are so many people coming out to support me. It’s fantastic. I will not let them down!”

IBF cruiserweight champion Tomasz Adamek, responding to a question from a fan asking if Adamek thought this was going to be an easy fight said, “I am too intensely professional to take Bobby Gunn lightly. There is danger every time you step in the ring. I have worked too hard to lose all I have, just because I didn’t take my job seriously. But tomorrow there will be no let down for my fans. The first opportunity I get I will try to knock Bobby Gunn out, because I don’t get paid for overtime!”

Anyway, the Miami Herald, The Guardian, and Wikipedia among others have been using the “crowdfunding” revenue model, so we thought we’d test it too.
