Adrian “The Problem” Broner (26-0, 22 KOs) defended his WBC lightweight title by dropping Gavin Rees (37-2-1, 19 KOs) twice en-route to an impressive fifth round stoppage this Saturday at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ. In the co-feature, former “The Contender” star Sakio “The Scorpion” Bika (30-6-2, 21 KOs) won a workmanlike but one-sided twelve unanimous decision victory over previously undefeated and #1 contender Nikola Sjeckloca (25-1, 7 KOs) in a WBC super middleweight title eliminator bout. With the victory, Bika became the mandatory challenger for champion Andre Ward. Along with the world title fight and the title eliminator, the card also featured a USBA title contest, plus the showcasing of several Olympians and future prospects.

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.
