There are ongoing discussions to finalize a lightweight encounter between unbeaten Sharif Bogere (23-0, 15KOs) and Cuban fighter Richard Abril (17-3-1, 8KOs), with the vacant WBA title at stake. If a deal comes together, the match would become the Showtime televised opener for Golden Boy's card on October 13th at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. WBC super bantamweight champion Abner Mares is also scheduled to see action on the show.

Abril was initially positioned to face Gavin Rees in a UK encounter in the fall, but BoxingScene was told the deal was never fully finalized and later fell apart.

I'm glad Abril gets to fight for the title again and in American TV, but I hope he realizes that the clinching cost him a number of fans and doesn't do it again.

I was hoping Broner would fight Bogere on October 6th. But this is a good fight. What happened to Abril vs. Rees??? Maybe Broner can fight Rees now.
