Anthony Ogogo suffers broken eye socket

Following on from Anthony Ogogo’s fight on Saturday evening against Craig Cunningham, it has been confirmed that Ogogo was retired by his corner due to suffering from severely blurred double vision as a result of a broken eye socket.

Unbeaten Ogogo’s professional career has been stop-start so far due to injury, with the 2012 Olympic bronze medallist set for his first action since July where he moved to 8-0 with a win in Germany over Ruslan Schelev.
