Mayweather Promotions kicks off the new year with Sin City Showdown

*LAS VEGAS *(January 11, 2018) – Once beaten Lightweight prospect *Sharif
Bogere *(30-1, 20KO’s) makes his return to Sam’s Town Live against Mexico’s
Arturo Santos in 10 rounds of action. This bout marks Bogere’s return to
the venue after his recent unanimous decision victory against Jose Luis
Rodriguez back in October. The bout will take place on Saturday, January 27
th inside Sam’s Town Live, home of Mayweather Promotions’ Sin City Showdown
cards. The card is promoted by Mayweather Promotions and marks the first
event of the year for the promotional company.

“The Lion has made his return and I do not plan on slowing down, said
Bogere. Prior to my last fight, I was working on getting my body back in
good health, and my last fight was a great tune-up to prepare me for
tougher opponents. Training camp is always good; I have a great team who
pushes me. I am still training and sparring with some really tough guys, my
balance and timing have improved, now I am focused on getting stronger and
gaining more IQ.”

“This fight is a big fight for me and where I am at in my career, says
Santos. It’s always an honor to fight in the U.S., I thank Mayweather
Promotions for the opportunity and am prepared to take care of business. I
will represent and make my fans back home in Mexico proud on fight night”

Also making his return is Mayweather Promotions’ entertaining and gritty
Welterweight prospect *Cameron Krael *(12-12-3), who was featured as the
co-main event on Bogere’s last card at Sam’s Town Live. Krael is determined
to make his return and continue his pursuit of becoming a top contender in
the Welterweight division. The Sin City Showdown card will also feature
Mayweather Promotions’ talented prospects including undefeated
Welterweight *Sanjarbek
Rakhamanov* (9-0-1, 4KO’s), undefeated Lightweight prospect *Xavier
Martinez* (10-0, 6KO’s), recently signed Super Bantamweight *Angelo Leo* (11-0,
7KO’s) who recently made a spectacular Mayweather Promotions debut with a 4
th round KO in November, Super Middleweight prospect *Kevin Newman* (7-1-1,
3KO’s), Welterweight prospect *Maurice Lee* (7-1-, 3KO’s), undefeated Light
Middleweight *Oluwafemi Oyeleye* (4-0, 1KO), and hard-hitting undefeated
Lightweight prospect *Rolando Romero* (3-0. 3KO’s) all in separate bouts.

“Mayweather Promotions is already carrying the momentum of 2017 into the
new year, this card is matched with some of the toughest prospects in
boxing, says Leonard Ellerbe, CEO of Mayweather Promotions. Sharif Bogere
has worked hard to get to this point in his career. He captures fans with
his come-forward aggressive style and charisma. He’s a tough guy. His last
fight was a tune-up after suffering a major injury, but I believe this
fight will not disappoint. We are also excited to bring Cameron Krael back
to Sam’s Town, he’s a very tough fighter who continues to gain fans and
prove himself in the ring, and he will show that come fight night in the
co-main event.”

Originally from Uganda, and fighting out of Las Vegas, Sharif “The Lion”
Bogere exhibits an impressive record of (30-0, 20KO’s). Bogere’s aggressive
fight style and quick technique helped him gain 20 victories by KO. The
Lightweight prospect is resilient and his skill is undeniable. Prior to
suffering a torn Achilles injury in October 2015, an eager Bogere was well
on track to getting a world title shot. Unfazed by his adversity, Bogere
returned to the ring in October 2017 and snagged a unanimous decision win
against one of Mexico’s toughest fighters, Jose Luis Rodriguez. Bogere’s
only defeat came in 2013 against Richar Abril when he fought for the WBA
World Lightweight title.

Fighting out of Sonora Mexico, Santos is a former 2008 Olympian and junior
world champion. Santos has built his career fighting steep competition,
recently fighting the likes of WBA champion Abner Mares who defeated him
back in 2015, giving Santos the first knockdown of his career, and rising
prospect Tevin Farmer last April, where he suffered a unanimous decision
loss. The Mexican Lightweight is coming off a tough break with two
back-to-back losses, HE, however, is ready to get back in the ring and get
back to the top of the Lightweight division.

At 24-years old, Cameron Krael has made a name for himself becoming a fan
favorite in his hometown of Las Vegas. He’s considered the “Gate Keeper”
who will fight anyone to showcase his talent and heart. He’s fearless and
doesn’t back down, and carries that same demeanor in the ring. Prior to his
recent draw against Shoki Sakai in October, Krael was coming off a 4-win
streak. Focused and determined, Krael won’t allow anything to derail him in
his ascension to becoming a contender in the Welterweight division. Krael
is strong, has a tough chin, and has gained his experience through the
tough competition he’s faced in the ring.
