Recently elevated WBA lightweight champion Richar Abril (18-3-1, 8 KOs) successfully defended his title against previously unbeaten WBA #2 Sharif Bogere (23-1, 15 KOs) by twelve round unanimous decision on Saturday night at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Bogere was very aggressive and applied rough-house tactics early. Abril, who was cut over the right eye from a headbutt, was deducted a point from referee Russell Mora in round eight. The point deduction seemed to wake up Abril who began to land repeated clean shots the rest of the way. Bogere was deducted a point in round twelve for head butting. Scores were 115-111, 116-110, 116-110.


Richard Abril (18-3-1, 8 KOs) recientemente elevado a campeón del peso ligero de la AMB defendió con éxito su título contra el hasta entonces invicto Nº 2 Sharif Bogere (23-1, 15 KOs) a quien derrotó por decisión unánime en la noche del sábado en el Hard Rock Hotel y Casino en Las Vegas. Bogere fue muy agresivo y aplicó las tácticas aprendidas temprano. Abril recibió una cortada sobre el ojo derecho por un cabezazo. Russell Mora dedujo un punto a Abril en el round 8 y la deduccion puntos pareció despertar a Abril porque empezó a lanzar golpes el resto del combate. Bogere recibió una deducción de punto en el doce por cabezazos. Las puntuaciones fueron 115-111, 116-110, 116-110.
