Promoter Groupe Yvon Michel (GYM) has inked Olympians Eleider Alavarez (light heavyweight) and Oscar Rivas (heavyweight). Both fighters represented their country of Colombia in 2008. Former world title challenger Epifanio Mendoza, a native of Colombia, was a major factor in having the duo sign with GYM.

    For 18 years,® has delivered daily boxing news to fight fans around the globe. 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.
