Bogere Waits For November Date For Abril WBA Clash

By Phil D. Jay

There is a lion waiting to roar later this year as undefeated lightweight Sharif Bogere nears the confirmation of a WBA title challenge against interim-beltholder Richard Abril.

The 23 year-old has 15 stoppages on a perfect 23-fight record to date, with five of his last seven outings ending before the end of the third round and Bogere is hoping to be given the news of his championship test soon.

“Right now I am just waiting to hear the date, which might probably be around November,” Bogere told World Boxing News.

“The fight will be for the full WBA title and I am just waiting for the go from my bosses at Golden Boy.”

Bogere has apparently jumped ahead of Gavin Rees in the queue to face Abril as the two failed to agree on a potential fight and the Ugandan denied that there was any chance of him travelling to the UK to fight the Welshman instead.

“I haven't had any offers to fight in England, but I would like that someday, when the offer comes.

“I can't predict what will happen in the future. Only God knows better, but in the next twelve months, I see doing great things in boxing.

“Are there any top champion fighters who want to fight me? I've called out everybody, but none take the fight.”

On a possible move up the weights, Bogere added: “I am planning on moving up in future, but first I have got to take one step at a time. But the Lion is coming to roar!”
