London 2012 Olympics, middleweight Bronze medallist Anthony Ogogo has been talking about his options and whether or not he is going to turn professional.

Talking to BBC Sport, Ogogo explained, “I'm talking to a few different promoters. But I'm talking to GB boxing as well about extending with them. If I decide to turn pro, I want to be making my debut in February. I've spoken to Golden Boy. I've spoken to Matchroom Sport as well. They're probably the biggest one in Britain at the moment.”
 
The 24-year-old added, “It's really tough. It's about what I want to achieve in my life now. Do I want to upgrade the bronze to a gold at the Rio 2016 Olympics? Or do I think 'London was amazing. Rio's not going to be as good because it will be on in the early hours of the morning in Britain so not as many people will see it'. So do I turn pro and try and box on terrestrial TV and have millions of people watching me on a Saturday night?”
