Hundreds of fans braved the heat at the famed Placita Olvera in Los Angeles today to welcome and cheer on Juan Manuel “Dinamita” Marquez before he heads to Las Vegas to face Juan “Baby Bull” Diaz in “Fight of the Year: The Rematch” on pay-per-view July 31 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center. Over 300 fans showed their support for Mexico’s “Numero Uno” and Marquez reciprocated that support by signing autographs for over two hours in the blazing sun. “I was so happy that all of the fans came out to support me today,” said Marquez. “Arriving in the United States really makes me feel like the fight is almost here. I want to make the Mexican people proud and to be victorious on July 31.”

    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.

    Please consider helping out. You’re not obligated to, but even a $1 pledge would really help. And if we reach our goal, we plan to upgrade our server and maybe even nuke the ads altogether. Wouldn’t that be nice?
