On Saturday, former WBC heavyweight champion Oleg Maskaev will risk his mandatory challenger status against Rich Boruff (17-2) in the Republic of Mordovia. Oleg was heralded as a hero when he arrived in the country. In December ’08 the WBC ordered that the winner of the Vitali Klitschko-Juan Carlos Gomez bout must fight Oleg Maskaev next, but if Maskaev loses this fight, he loses his mandatory status.

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.
