Kell Brook: “The IBF shot is a huge incentive. It’s massive knowing that I have a fight with Randall Bailey or Devon Alexander lined up after I’ve dealt with Saldivia…Hector is a tough cookie, who keeps coming and chucking shots. He likes to hold his position in the middle of the ring and dictate fights. He’s a big puncher, but if he wants to stand and fight I am more than ready to go toe-to-toe with him, as I know I can outhit him. With the way I am feeling now, he won’t go the distance. I won’t say what round as talk is cheap, but don’t blink tomorrow as you’ll open your eyes and he’ll be sparked out.”

From the beginning, we have always kept Fightnews free to our readers and relied on advertiser support. 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.
