Abril-Bogere, Russell-Gusev Heads To Las Vegas, 3/2

BoxingScene.com has been advised by the Nevada State Athletic Commision that Golden Boy Promotions is moving their March 2nd event to Las Vegas. The card was scheduled to take place at the Apollo Theater in New York City, but on Monday the main event fell through when Jayson Velez, due to injury, withdrew from his fight with WBC featherweight Daniel Ponce De Leon.

The Showtime televised card will now shift to the Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.  The event will be headlined by Richard Abril vs. Sharif Bogere, fighting for the vacant WBA lightweight world championship, and the co-featured bout will be Gary Russell Jr. vs. Vyacheslav Gusev in a ten round featherweight fight.

Broner should take the winner of Abril vs. Bogere. I think Abril boxes the **** out of Sharif which would set up a Broner/Abril unification fight. Beating Abril and Burns/Vasquez would be an excellent body of work for 2013.
