Boxing: Anthony Ogogo misses Las Vegas night due to hand injury
Wednesday 28 August 2013
Anthony Ogogo has withdrawn from the undercard of Floyd Mayweather's showdown with Saul Alvarez in Las Vegas on 14 September to focus on regaining full fitness after sustaining a hand injury.
"I'm obviously hugely disappointed by this," said Ogogo. "It was a huge honour for me to be included and it would have been a fantastic experience."
"I could have had injections in it but it's only my fourth fight and I don't want to be going down that road too soon," he added.
The middleweight, a bronze medallist at London 2012, is unbeaten in three contests since he turned pro with Golden Boy in the United States this year.
