Broner Heads To 11/17, Bogere vs Abril on 11/3, More

By Rick Reeno

Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer has advised that undefeated lightweight contender Adrien Broner (24-0, 20KOs) will now return on November 17th at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City. Broner was previously scheduled for November 3.

That certainly provides Golden Boy and promoter Gary Shaw additional time to finalize a bout with WBC lightweight champion Antonio DeMarco (28-2-1, 21KOs) - although that wasn't the reason for moving the date.

HBO will televise fght, says Schaefer, and that would certainly push Top Rank's planned doubleheader, with Orlando vs. Mikey Garcia and Vanes Martirosyan vs. Erislandy Lara, to November 10th.

The HBO televised co-feature would have heavyweight Seth Mitchell (25-0-1, 19KOs) taking on Johnathon Banks (28-1-1, 18 KOs).


The WBA lightweight title fight between Richard Abril (17-3-1, 8KOs) and Sharif Bogere (23-0, 15KOs) has finally found a home. Schaefer indicates the lightweight clash will take place on November 3rd at the Cosmopolitan Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. Showtime will televise fight as a special Saturday edition of ShoBox.


Showtime's November 10th broadcast - featuring a super bantamweight clash between WBC champion Abner Mares (24-1, 13KOs), and challenger Anselmo Moreno (33-1-1, 12KOs) - is now becoming a quadrupleheader. The event is taking place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Heavyweight contender Chris Arreola (35-2, 30Kos) and returning junior middleweight puncher Alfredo Angulo (20-2, 17KOs) will appear in action.

Schaefer would not confirm the specifics of the fourth fight, but a third party source advised BoxingScene that featherweight contender Gary Russel Jr. is one possibility being considered.
