Ogogo will have to wait for Olympic chance

ANTHONY Ogogo will have to wait until next year’s European Championships for his next chance to qualify for the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

The Lowestoft boxer lost in the third round to Brazilian Falcao Florentino, in Azerbaijan, but would have been given an automatic route to London had the Brazilian reached the final.

However, Falcao lost in today’s quarter final against Japan’s Ryota Murata, 24:11.
