Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom Sport put on a top night of boxing action in Hull on Saturday night.
The action - broadcasted on Sky Sports - kicked-off with Olympic bronze medalist Anthony Ogogo.
Ogogo headed into this fight with a record of 2-0. Ogogo’s opponent Gary Boulden is a good solid professional who should have been a tough test for Ogogo in only his third professional fight.
Ogogo put on a brilliant show going through the gears in fine fashion as the fight went on.
The British boxer began well by utilising the jab and dominating every round.
Ogogo showed his classy technique and speed advantage over his opponent and is looking better every time he fights.
Ogogo began to land big right-hands and put Boulden under real pressure as he upped the intensity.
The referee stepped in as Ogogo began to land at will with heavy shots.
Ogogo showcased his power well. He lands bog combinations that tire opponents despite not being a concussive one punch artist.
It was a great display from a very promising young boxer who looks set to have a huge future in the sport.
The possibility of Ogogo being a big success has surely been increased by news that he is to train with fellow Goldenboy fighter and shareholder Bernard Hopkins.
As I suggested previously this is a brilliant opportunity for Ogogo to train with someone who is a legend of the sport.
Hopkins has vast knowledge and experience that will be hugely valuable to Ogogo.
All of this combines for a real feel-good factor surrounding Ogogo.
Ogogo is now Britain’s Goldenboy.
