Turns out, the old dog still has some tricks left. In yet another unbelievable performance, former two-division champion Bernard Hopkins became the oldest man to ever win a major title in boxing history with a wide unanimous decision Saturday night against IBF title-holder Tavoris Cloud at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The fight was the main event of an HBO World Championship boxing telecast. The 48-year-old Hopkins, who previously beat the record in 2011 with a decision win against Jean Pascal, won by tallies of 117-111 and 116-112 (twice). Fightnews scored the bout 115-113 for the new belt-holder. (More)

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.
