Sauerland Events denies Povetkin-Oquendo

WBA #5 heavyweight Fres Oquendo informed media in Puerto Rico that he is fighting WBA heavyweight champion Alexander Povetkin on May 17 at the Crocus City Hall in Moscow, Russia. However, this has been strongly denied by Sauerland Events, Povetkin’s promoter. “This is complete rubbish, Povetkin is a Sauerland fighter and no deal reached. We have an offer but not decided.”

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.
