Anthony Ogogo is through the middleweight quarter finals after
defeating world number one Ievgen Khytrov.
The 23-year-old from Lowestoft, whose mother is currently
recovering from a brain haemorrhage, won by judges verdict after
the clash finished level at 18-18.
"This is my time. It was such a tough fight. The bad luck I've
had with the draw and the disruptions before, I was due a bit of
luck. I have been on the other end so many times, I deserve that,"
he told the BBC.
"I am so proud to wear this lion on my chest. It feels amazing.
To come through and hopefully inspire people.
"People don't realise I'm a pretty determined fighter. I
surprise people by how well I can fight. No-one believed I'd win
this fight other than me and my family. I don't even think the rest
of the team thought I could do it."
He will now face Germany's Stefan Hartel on Monday.
