Pedraza, a 2008 Olympian and one of the most decorated and sought-after amateurs ever, is said to have agreed to a signing bonus second only to Miguel Cotto for a fighter from the island. At the press conference, promoters Javier Bustillo, Gary Shaw and Lou DiBella will share details of their plans for the boxer’s career, and will reveal his first fight for 2011.

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.
