Vicente Mosquera defeats late sub Cosme Rivera


WBA #5 super lightweight Vicente “El Loco” Mosquera (33-2-1, 18 KOs) was victorious when veteran Cosme “El Chino” Rivera (35-17-3, 24 KOs) didn’t come out for round seven on Friday night in a welterweight bout at the Kissimmee Civic Center in Kissimmee, Florida. Mosquera took over the fight in the third round against Rivera, who took the fight on just 24 hours notice, and punished him the rest of the way. Mosquera was to have faced Joan Guzman for the WBA interim title, but Guzman came in eight pounds heavy and that bout was scrapped. After the fight, Mosquera said he was now ready to face WBC/WBA champion Danny Garcia.

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.
