British middleweight star Anthony Ogogo is putting the disappointment of missing out on a slot on the Mayweather v Canelo card in Las Vegas this month in the past to prepare himself for a possible US return later in the year.
Firstly, the Lowestoft fighter is eyeing up a bout on home soil once fully fit as the Olympic bronze medallist looks to build on his impressive career beginnings in scoring three wins from three starts.
“I am hoping to have one or two more fights by the end of this year, that’s the plan,” Ogogo told World Boxing News.
“The next fight could be in the UK, possibly in November and then I may get one in the US to finish the year.”
The 24 year-old suffered an injury in training that prevented him participating in a six-rounder on the MGM Grand PPV bill, in what is the biggest night in the boxing calendar so far this year on September 14.
Under the guidance of promoters Golden Boy, Ogogo can expect to feature on similar cards in the future though as his career progresses, but barring any further setbacks the young star should be back in the ring in a few weeks’ time.
