All this talk about underground fighting has led to a fundraiser for the documentary, Model Boxers, that is being made about one “pretty boy” boxer in particular – Rockstar Charlie. Charlie and his friends/posse, the Big Gunz, will be hosting a big event (see above) this Saturday at Santos Party House to help raise funds for the movie.
