THE agony was all too familiar. After being out of action for a year, with surgery and treatment on his heels, Anthony Ogogo finally returned to the ring. Boxing on a Sauerland promoted bill in Germany in July against Ruslan Schelev he threw a right cross. The shoulder went.

“I felt it scrape against my collar bone. It came right out the socket,” Anthony recalled.

“When the surgeon went in, he said there are two threads left. If they had went, it would have went completely and it wouldn’t have gone back in the socket. I had to fight four and a half rounds against a tough Ukrainian, a strong geezer, with one arm and I won.
