Anthony Ogogo Considering Possibility of Going Pro

British Olympic bronze medallist Anthony Ogogo says he may have to deny his "massive desire" to go to Rio 2016 in favour of turning professional. The 23-year-old from Lowestoft is considering offers from promoters.

Ogogo produced one of many memorable moments for Great Britain at London 2012, beating Ukraine's world number one and world champion Ievgen Khytrov on his way to a middleweight bronze medal. That performance, after nine months of shoulder rehabilatation, has attracted attention from promoters from around the world.

"It's a lovely position to be in. I just need to take my time and make the right decision for my future, myself and family," he told BBC Radio Suffolk. "People don't realise there's no money in amateur boxing at all. You do it for the glory and the prestige."

"I'm 23 now. So the next four years of my life I'm going to develop - get a house, kids - and it's hard to do that on the shoestring budget I live on. It's a tough one. Do I stay amateur and go for Rio? My build-up to London wasn't easy. If there was a guarantee of going to Rio I may stay amateur. But the qualifying is tough. It's a nice position to be in. I've got some big promoters from around the world who would like to sign me."

Stay amateur, don't think he'd suit the pro ranks.
