DKP defaults, Sauerland to promote Huck-Afolabi III

It’s official. The WBO have defaulted Don King Productions today and awarded the rights to promote Huck vs. Afolabi III to Sauerland Event. They will announce date and venue shortly. At a WBO purse bid in February, King’s bid of $1,500,000 easily outpriced Huck’s promoter Sauerland ($914,000) and Afolabi’s promoter K2 ($375,000), but as has happened in other fights, such as Arreola-Stiverne, DKP didn’t follow through.

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.
