The bright lights of Las Vegas, Nev., are a stark contrast to the mean streets of Kampala, Uganda, where undefeated lightweight contender Sharif “The Lion” Bogere had to hustle to survive. A former African amateur champion, Bogere lived with his family in a one-room house in Kampala before moving to the United States in 2007 to focus on his boxing career. This Saturday on SHOWTIME (10 p.m. ET/PT), the aggressive and entertaining Bogere gets his first shot at a world championship against WBA Lightweight World Champion Richar “El Tigre” Abril. Almost 10,000 miles away from Kampala in the boxing capital of the world, Bogere will look to make himself a household name.
