Both statements and threats were made during today’s heated final press conference for Saturday’s fight between current WBC interim super flyweight world champion Tomás “Gusano” Rojas (31-11-1, 22 KOs) and challenger Evans Mbamba (16-0, 8 KOs) who meet Saturday at the the World Trade Center in Veracruz, Mexico. It’s the first defense for Rojas, who is hoping to land a fight with Vic Darchinyan. The fight will be broadcast in Mexico by Azteca TV under the promotion of Zanfer in association with the Veracruz State Government.

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.
