Sharif Bogere on ShoBox: A Look Back at Bogere vs Beltran (Full Fight Video)

Courtesy Showtime Sports, here's the full May 13 fight between Sharif Bogere and Raymundo Beltran, a bloody, hard-fought battle that introduced many to the lightweight prospect Bogere, who returns to ShoBox on Friday night, facing Francisco Contreras.

Bogere (20-0, 12 KO) stayed unbeaten with this win over Beltran, though I did score it just slightly for Beltran. Depending on the day, though, I could go back and forth -- it was a good, very competitive fight, both guys got a little dirty when they felt that they had to, and both were prepared to go a tough 10 rounds to win, and they did so.

I know very little about Contreras (16-0, 13 KO), other than what his record can tell me. Born in the Dominican Republic, the 27-year-old is based in New Jersey and has been fighting in the U.S. since 2009. He doesn't have any big wins, but familiar names like Adolfo Landeros (UD-6), Eric Cruz (UD-8), and Juan Castaneda Jr (KO-1) are on his sheet. He's kind of an unknown going into this fight, and it's a good step up for him.
