Lowestoft: Ogogo's Olympic Win

Lowestoft boxer Anthony Ogogo has defeated Ukraine's reigning world champion Ievgen Khytrov via a judges' decision to move within one more win of a boxing medal.

Ogogo matched his opponent in a fight 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 a 52-52 tie, before the judges were required to pick a winner and the majority went with the Briton. 

Ogogo is now through to the quarter finals.
