Heavyweights Francesco Pianeta, Steffen Kretschmann and Tom Schwarz, all featured fighters on Friday’s all heavyweight card at the EnergieVerbund Arena in Dresden, Germany, showed their skills to a large crowd of spectators at the Altmarkt Galerie.

Recent world title challenger Pianeta (29-1-1, 16 KOs) meets Mickael Vieira (14-3-1, 7 KOs) for the WBO European belt, Kretschmann (17-2, 15 KOs) faces Özcan Cetincaya (21-8-2, 14 KOs) for the vacant International German belt, and 19-year-old Schwartz (5-0, 3 KOs) completes in a four-man, one night “Prizefighter-like” tournament.

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.
