Mayweather-Canelo: Anthony Ogogo Forced To Withdraw
Anthony Ogogo has withdrawn from the undercard of Floyd Mayweather's showdown with Saul Alvarez in Las Vegas on September 14 to concentrate on regaining full fitness.
Ogogo, a bronze medalist at London 2012, was due to make his fourth appearance as a professional next month, but has been forced to pull out of the bill at the MGM Grand due to injury.
"I'm obviously hugely disappointed by this," Ogogo said.
"It was a huge honour for me to be included and it would have been a fantastic experience to be involved in one of the biggest cards in recent history.
"However, going into a fight fully fit and firing on all cylinders is of paramount importance to me.
"This fight just came a little too soon and I wouldn't have been doing myself, Golden Boy or the card justice if I fought when I wasn't 100%."
Unbeaten 24-year-old Ogogo has registered three victories since turning professional and hopes to fight twice more before the end of the year.
