Gamboa-Burgos on HBO June 8

Promoter Fifty Cent of SMS Promotions and Thompson Boxing are close to finalizing a deal for interim WBA jr welterweight champion Yuriorkis Gamboa (22-0, 16 KOs) and former WBC Silver jr lightweight champion Juan Carlos Burgos (30-1-1, 20 KOs) to headline a June 8th HBO Championship Boxing card at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas. According to our source, the camps of both fighters are onboard and it’s just a matter tying up the loose ends. An announcement should come next week.

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.
