2008 United States Olympic Bronze Medalist Deontay Wilder made it 24 knockouts in 24 fights with a first round destruction of Kertson “Warrior” Manswell (22-6, 17 KOs) on Saturday night at the Mobile Civic Center Expo Hall in Mobile, Alabama. Wilder dropped Manswell three times in round one and the bout was waved off after 2:10.

Junior middleweight Dmitriy Salita (34-1-1, 18 KOs) battered veteran Roberto Valenzuela (65-63-2, 54 KOs) dropping him in round three and getting a TKO stoppage in round four. Salita is chasing an all-Brooklyn showdown with WBA welterweight champion Paulie Malignaggi.

Unbeaten featherweight Jayson “La Maravilla” Velez (19-0, 14 KOs), the latest phenom to emerge from the boxing rich island of Puerto Rico, scored a spectacular sixth round KO over journeyman Leivi Brea (18-10-3, 9 KOs).

Light heavyweight Thomas Williams Jr. (10-0, 7 KOs) needed just 101 seconds to annihilate Harley Kilfian (9-11, 8 KOs). Two knockdowns.

6-foot junior lightweight Ray Ray Bryant (3-0, 1 KO) outpointed 5’4 journeyman Anthony Middlebrook (9-10-2, 7 KOs) in a four round fight.

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.
