Salgado, Shafikov head Cozumel twinbill

The NABF super flyweight title will be on the line at the Parque Andres Quintana Roo in Cozumel, Mexico, tonight when Quintana Roo’s own Jose “Sugar” Salgado (29-2-1, 26 KOs) defends his title against Colombia’s Devis “El Metrallo” Perez (16-7-4, 10 KOs) in a bout which will be aired on FOX Deportes in the United States.

In the co-featured bout, the vacant WBC Mediterranean super lightweight title will be up for grabs when unbeaten Russian southpaw Denis Shafikov (30-0-1, 17 KOs) battles Ghana’s Albert “Tornado” Mensah (25-3-1, 10 KOs) in a 12 round fight.

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.
