The recent David Tua versus Saul Montana heavyweight title clash was broadcast live to paying members of the world's No. 1 boxing portal -- SecondsOut.com.

Affino combines traditional Content Management with Web 2.0 Technologies - Social Networking/eCommunity, Interactive eCommerce, Net TV/Video and ePromotions.
