Notes: Weigh-in held at Frank Ogama Plaza in downtown Oakland; Golden State Warriors star Monta Ellis in attendance and posed with the fighters; Dan Goossen: “Andre Ward was the last boxing gold medalist for the United States. We believe he [Ward] is going to get another gold in arguably his biggest fight Saturday night!….tickets are selling great, I expect between 7,000 and 9,000 [in attendance] tomorrow night”; during the face off after both fighters weighed in, Miranda leaned in pressing his head against Ward’s; Ward smiled and talked to Miranda for the entire 15-20 seconds during photos while Miranda just scowled.

    For 18 years,® has delivered daily boxing news to fight fans around the globe. From the beginning, we have always kept Fightnews free to our readers and relied on advertiser support. 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.
