ANTHONY OGOGO will not be content if he is only remembered as an Olympic bronze medallist once his boxing days are over.

The middleweight makes his fourth pro appearance on Saturday at London’s ExCel Arena – the scene of his medal win at last summer’s Games.

But the 23-year-old wants to leave a much bigger impression on the sport than that, claiming: “I intend to get to the very, very top.

“I want to go on to become the world’s top middleweight and that’s the kind of legacy I would like to leave when I have finished.”

Ogogo moved into the paid ranks shortly after London 2012 and has had three contests, winning two of them by knockout.

He has not fought since a fifth-round KO win over Gary Boulden in July because of a niggling ­injury – the latest in a long line.

It forced him to pull out of a planned bout on the undercard of the Floyd Mayweather-Saul ­Alvarez fight in Las Vegas in ­September.

He said: “I have had injury problems for the last three years, with a foot and a hand causing me plenty of problems. But now, for the first time in years, I am pain free and feel that the shackles are off and I can give everything in the ring.

“I am really enjoying my boxing now after fighting at about 70 per cent of my ability because of the injury worries.

“For the first time in ages, I can run, train hard and really exert myself without any problems afterwards – and, believe me, that’s a great feeling.

“These days, I am knackered ­after training instead of stopping early because the pain was getting too much.”

Ogogo’s soaring confidence in his ability means that he is aiming to be a show-stopper whenever he climbs into the ring.

He added: “Now I want to steal the show every time I fight.

“I want to be the person people are talking about after seeing a fight night.”

Anthony Ogogo is working with the Subway brand on the ‘Train Hard Eat Fresh’ campaign to encourage an active lifestyle.

The guy has quality and a bit of charisma but does he have the steel to reach the heights. I'm not convinced.
