Anthony Ogogo beats world champion Khytrov

Anthony Ogogo produced arguably the greatest performance of his career to defeat Ukraine's reigning world champion Ievgen Khytrov via a nail-biting judges' decision to move within one more win of a Boxing medal.Great Britain's Ogogo matched his illustrious opponent in a brutal, action-packed Middle Weight bout which had the capacity ExCeL crowd on their feet, then faced an agonising wait as the final score showed an 18-18 tie between the pair.

Even the countback system - in which the individual scores of all five judges are tallied together - yielded an amazing 52-52 tie, before the judges were required to pick a winner and the majority went with Ogogo.
