More than 10,000 people who waited up to three hours gathered in the beautiful new Mexico City Arena in Mexico City to see the final news conference on the international media tour to announce the fourth clash between Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez on December 8 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Manny Pacquiao: “I’m happy to fight him for the fourth time. I have to recognize how difficult he is as a fighter, a great warrior, and I’m really happy to come to Mexico City….to Filipinos in Mexico, thank you very much for being here. I didn’t intend to fight another Mexican fighter, but that’s the way things are.”

Juan Manuel Marquez: “I’m going to prepare very well. This is a new challenge for me, I will go very well prepared, it’s a strong and difficult challenge, but we are going to celebrate Christmas and New Year.”

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.
