SUFFOLK Olympic boxer Anthony Ogogo has learned who his first professional opponent will be.

The Lowestoft middleweight, who won bronze at the London Olympics last year, faces Kieron ‘Slammer’ Gray of Telford in a six round fight on the undercard of the Amir Khan vs Julio Diaz bill in Sheffield on April 27.

Gray has a record of five wins, 13 losses and one draw, with just one knockout on his list of victories.

He’s lost his last 10 fights, and hasn’t won since early 2009, after starting his career with five straight victories.

Gray has fought for both the British Masters Middleweight title, losing to Warren Tansey in April 2012, and the Midlands Area Light-Middleweight title, which he drew with Jamie Ball in December 2010.
