Gabriel Rosado became the #1 IBF junior middleweight contender with a gritty 10th round TKO of hard-nosed veteran Charles Whittaker Friday night at the Sands Casino Resort in Bethlehem, PA. The scheduled 12-rounder was a title eliminator to determine the mandatory challenger for champion Cornelius “K9” Bundrage. The win boosted Rosado to a 21-5 (13 KOs) record. Whittaker lost for the first time since 2004, and hinted that he may hang up his gloves for good with a 36-12-2 (21 KOs) record. Click here for the full report and an action-packed photogallery!

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.
