Another major fight has been added to Universum Box-Promotion’s November 21 world title tripleheader at the Sparkassen Arena in Kiel, Germany. Spotlight Boxing’s unbeaten middleweight shooting star Gennady Golovkin (17-0, 14 KOs), rated #1 in the WBC and WBO and #2 by the WBA, will defend his WBO Intercontinental belt against veteran Ishe Smith (21-4, 9 KOs). Also on the undercard will be 2008 Olympic heavyweight gold medalist Rachim Chachkiev in his second pro fight against 30-fight veteran Denis Solomko, spectacular flyweight Pal “Pimpa” Bedak (5-0, 3 KOs) against Lahcene Zemmouri (17-12-1, 10 KOs), plus popular heavyweight Christian Hammer.

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.
