Anthony Ogogo undecided on future as World Series talks near
2012 Olympic bronze medallist Anthony Ogogo’s next career move is still unclear as the Lowestoft fighter is persistantly linked with a lucrative move into the professional ranks.
Ogogo, 24, caught the eye in London this summer with his exciting style as he battled his way to a podium finish and is rumoured to be attracting attention, not only in his native Britain, but further afield in the USA.
The latest reports, in many of the mainstream media sources, have Ogogo stepping into the paid ranks this week, although the promising middleweight has assured WBN that nothing has been confirmed regarding his immediate plans.
“At the moment it’s just rumours I’m afraid,” Ogogo told World Boxing News.
“I am still very much an amateur boxer. Discussions will be taking place with GB boxing regarding a place at the World Series this week. As of now I am still undecided on my future.”
Many of the boxers GB team-mates have been under the same intense scrutiny in the past few months as the top promoters from home and abroad scramble to be the first to sign-up an Olympic hero.
Team GB old medallists Anthony Joshua and Luke Campbell seem likely to spurn pro advances to remain on the amateur scene, although Ogogo cannot yet be put in the same bracket as the speculation continues.
