Jayson Velez Injures Ankle Prior to Showdown Against Daniel Ponce de Leon, Richard Abril vs. Sharif Bogere Elevated to Main Event

by on Feb.16, 2013, under Boxing News, Press Releases

SATURDAY, MARCH 2 EVENT WILL NOW TAKE PLACE AT HARD ROCK HOTEL & CASINO IN LAS VEGAS AND BE TELEVISED LIVE ON SHOWTIME®

LAS VEGAS, NV, February 15 — The vacant WBA Lightweight World Championship between Richard Abril and Sharif “The Lion” Bogere has been elevated to the main event on Saturday, March 2 and will now be held at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas live on SHOWTIME at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT (delayed on the West Coast).  The previously scheduled main event between WBC Featherweight World ChampionDaniel Ponce De Leon and Jayson Velez has been removed from the fight card due to a right ankle fractured suffered this week by Velez. The venue change from Harlem’s Apollo Theater in New York City comes as a result of the loss of the De Leon vs. Velez fight, and the presence of the Mexico vs. Puerto Rico rivalry attached to it, making it less prudent to promote the event in Harlem in close proximity to large Mexican and Puerto Rican communities.

 

Opening the telecast will be unbeaten featherweight phenom Gary Russell Jr. against Russia’s Vyacheslav Gusev in a 10-round featherweight bout.   (continue reading…)

Lundy (17-0-1, 10 KOs) remained unbeaten, even though he suffered a knockdown in the midway through the fight, that appeared to be more of a slip causing his glove to briefly hit the canvas. The judges scored 98-91 and 96-94 in favor of Lundy, 95-94 for Abril (12-2-1, 6 KOs). (continue reading…)
