Ogogo’s Olympic hopes kept alive after Falcao win

ANTHONY OGOGO’S dream of representing Great Britain at next year’s Olympics remains on track after his third round victor, Brazil’s Esquiva Falcao Florentino progressed to the quarter finals of the World Amateur Boxing Championships in Azerbaijan, today.

Falcao defeated Ogogo 17-12 on Tuesday but the Lowestoft boxer will qualify for the Middleweight section in London, next year, providing the Brazilian makes the final in Baku.

The next round of bouts scheduled for the championships take place on Friday.
