LONG READ Relive London 2012

Ringside throughout the London 2012 boxing tournament, here's John Dennen's complete account of the Olympic Games that made stars of Nicola Adams, Luke Campbell and Anthony Joshua
London 2012

DAY ONE – JULY 28

THE obstacles that have blocked the progress of Anthony Ogogo have been many and varied. In the past the Triple A boxer has engineered crazy wins under unique circumstances, from beating Indian star Vijender Singh in Delhi without landing a scoring blow (two public warnings went in Ogogo’s favour) to Anthony’s miraculous Olympic qualification comeback. Yet he will have to face his most daunting boxing challenge in Ievgen Khytrov.

The Ukrainian middleweight is the World champion, top Olympic seed and favoured to triumph at London 2012.
