Broner vs DeMarco: CompuBox joins in on disaster relief donations for Saturday's HBO card

Greg M. Cooper-US PRESSWIRE

After Golden Boy Promotions and Oscar De La Hoya announced a plan to donate to charity surrounding Saturday's Adrien Broner vs. Antonio DeMarco card on HBO, CompuBox has announced their own plan to join in the charitable fun.

As reported yesterday, Golden Boy Promotions will be making a $2 donation to the Boys & Girls Club of Atlantic Cityfor every ticket sold to Saturday's HBO Championship Boxing event headlined by Adrien Broner's bout with Antonio DeMarco. Oscar De La Hoya has said that he'll match the amount donated by GBP. They're also tacking on an additional $1,000 per knockout.

Now it's CompuBox getting in the mix with their own donation as announced on their website:

CompuBox President Bob Canobbio announced today that CompuBox will donate $5 to the LI Disaster Relief Fund for every landed punch during the HBO telecast of the Antonio Demarco vs. Adrien Broner and Seth Mitchell vs. Jonathan Banks fights this Saturday night in Atlantic City.

"I was born and raised on Long Island and still live here," said Canobbio. "I’m very saddened by this tragedy and want to give something back to the good people of Long Island in any way possible."

Fight fans, promoters, trainers, fighters and managers wanting to participate can send their contributions—check made out to:

Similar to yesterday, donations like this are nice but a little strange. The whole uncertain amount of money donated based entirely on fighter performance is a touch odd.

And now, from a charitable standpoint anyway, you have to root for fights to go to the late rounds so that the number of punches landed is high enough that the CompuBox donation is sizeable, but still hope that there's a KO in those later rounds so that the knockout bonus from Golden Boy gets into the Boys & Girls Club's hands.

I know it's an interesting way to tie the action to the donations but if Seth Mitchell and Adrien Broner both score KO's in the first two rounds, does that mean that there is just going to be a $200 donation?

I should probably stop overthinking this and just be happy. Charitable donations are nice.
