Former WBO super bantamweight champion and Son of a Legend Wilfredo “Papito” Vazquez (23-3-1, 19 KOs) won a twelve round unanimous decision over previously undefeated prospect Guillermo “Borrego” Avila (13-1, 8 KOs) on Friday night at the Kissimmee Civic Center in Kissimmee, Florida. It was a very tough fight for WV2 as Avila brought the pressure and mostly gave as good as he got. Scores were 116-112 on all cards as WV2 claimed the vacant World Boxing Organization International super bantamweight title.

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.
