Ogogo sets up Mayweather v Maidana slot; Easy for Joshua; Murray TKO

Phil Jay 01/03/2014

Olympian Anthony Ogogo is set for a high-profile scrap on the May 3 Mayweather v Maidana pay-per-view bill after coming through Greg O’Neil without much fuss in Glasgow on Saturday night.

The 25 year-old took every round of the scheduled six to record a fifth professional victory in his first eleven months without a head guard and told Sky Sports of his next outing when speaking to Ed Robinson.

“I feel like I am ready for eight and ten rounds now and felt good after getting the six rounds in,” said Ogogo.

“I would have stopped Greg if we would have gone eight rounds and now I can concentrate on fighting on the Mayweather v Maidana bill after hearing from Golden Boy that I will fight in May.”

Fellow-London 2012 particiant Anthony Joshua made light work of Hector Avila as the world title prospect scored a crushing first round win is some style.

Later on in the night, John Murray scored a bruising win over John Simpson in just two rounds after some well-placed body shots saw off the smaller Scot – who really has no business fighting at 135lbs.

Also on the bill, Scott Cardle took out a game Paul Appleby in the final round of eight after coming through some hairy moments and a sixth round wake up call from coach Joe Gallagher.

Earlier in the night at the Scottish Exhibition Centre, Martin J. Ward, David Brophy, Ryan Collins and Scott Allen recorded victories in dominant fashion.
