Anthony Ogogo

Just a few short days ahead of his highly anticipated clash with Cody Rhodes, Anthony Ogogo has revealed that he’s suffered a broken rib in training.

Speaking to Alistair McGeorge of the Metro Ogogo succinctly explained that his rib is “f***ed.”

‘I’m sitting here now – I’m very, very open and honest, probably too open and honest… But I am who I am, I do what I do. I’ve got a broken rib right now.

‘My rib’s broken because I did a move in training this week. I did it wrong, and I broke a rib. I’m now wrestling Cody, the best wrestler in the world, with a broken rib… And that’s real, that’s not me just saying that. My rib is f***ed!”

Before turning to wrestling Anthony Ogogo was an accomplished amateur boxer, winning a bronze medal at the London 2012 Olympics. The ‘Guvnor’ joined the professional ranks later the same year, however after a string of seven wins, Ogogo was out of action for a year follow an Achilles tendon injury.

While the former Olympian returned to the ring, he suffered his first defeat as a professional at the hands of Craig Cunningham in 2016. During the bout, Ogogo sustained a fractured eye socket which eventually led to his retirement from the sport.

Ogogo who is set to face Cody Rhodes on May 30th, has been training with QT Marshall. On a recent media call, Rhodes described Marshall as “the best trainer in the world.”

Double Or Nothing takes place on Sunday, May 30th at Daily’s Place, Jacksonville, Florida. The event will air live on pay-per-view and FITE TV.
