WBO #1 middleweight contender Bryan Vera held a media workout on Thursday in Los Angeles for his upcoming battle against Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. this Saturday at StubHub Center in Carson, Calif., and televised live on HBO World Championship Boxing. Vera received a six-figure purse increase due to Chavez much publicized weight difficulties. The Vera Camp also insisted on reducing the fight from twelve to ten rounds. Unofficially, the weight limit for the bout will be 173 when the fighters weigh in tomorrow.

U.S. Olympian Jose Ramirez also worked out for his upcoming feature fight against Daniel Calzada on the undercard.

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.
