“I am (more) ready than ever, I want to thank all my team for supporting me and pushing me to be in my best condition ever,” Sasso Lopez remarked. “I know what Makito will bring, but he will fail in this test.”

“I only want to say that people can say what they will do before the moment comes. You can never talk about the river without feeling the water. I am ready for Sasso and on Saturday night I will become the WBC’s CABOFE champion,” Mikito stated.

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.
