John Molina-Sharif Bogere is Close For May 13 Clash

By Ryan Burton has been advised that a lightweight clash between prospects John Molina Jr. (21-1) and Sharif Bogere (19-0) is close to being finalized for May 13th. The fight will be televised by Showtime on their ShoBox series.

Molina last appeared in the ring last July when he knocked out the then undefeated Hank Lundy.  Molina was down on the scorecards when he was able to come from behind and score the late knockout.

Bogere  has been a lot more active than Molina and followed up a 5-0 2010 with a victory over Shamir Reyes last week.

Hope and think Bogere wins. Boxing needs a few more showmen and this guy looks to potentially have the skill set to go with it.

Molina made me a fan against Hank Lundy. Guy has true heart and gritt. Just wished he stayed more active. A war with Rios would be awsome to see in the future.

Interesting match. Bogere is a character, entering the ring in a cage and wearing a lions head. Don't know if he is ready for Molina but we'll see(hopefully).
