Anthony Ogogo Offers To Take Tommy Fury’s Place In Jake Paul Fight

Anthony Ogogo

AEW star Anthony Ogogo has offered to fill in for Tommy Fury in his fight against Jake Paul after the English boxer had to withdraw from the highly-anticipated bout.

News broke on the 6th of December that Tommy Fury has been suffering from a broken rib and suffering from a chest infection that has seen him pull out of his proposed fight with YouTube come boxing star Jake Paul.

The bout was scheduled for the 18th of December but now Paul will fight former UFC Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley in Fury’s place.

However, the fight could have had a pro wrestling twist to it after AEW star and Olympic boxer Anthony Ogogo offered to take Fury’s place in no uncertain terms on social media:

@jakepaulyou sh*tbag. I’ve seen one British tv star / sporting heartthrob has pulled out. This tv star / sporting heartthrob will happily take his place on 12 days notice. I haven’t had a pair of gloves on in 3 years but I’ll still spank you like the bitch you are. Fight me!”

Anthony Ogogo won the bronze medal at the London Olympics in 2012 before going on to have a stellar professional career that was cut short through injury. Ogogo had been registered blind after suffering a fractured eye socket and has subsequently had numerous operations to help the condition.

Ogogo joined AEW in 2019 and went on to face Cody Rhodes in a high-profile match at Double Or Nothing in 2021 that Rhodes won. The Englishman has only recently returned to action in the company following that loss.
