    Never nice to see a boxer go out on terms he has no control over

    He will be OK in TV land

    Certainly not everyone's cup of tea was Ogogo but he can leave boxing knowing he had his own story and achieved success to an extent.

    Wish him all the best in the future. Life ain't always easy for retired boxers but he has other qualities which should stand him in good stead.

    A sobering reminder that an Olympic medal is not always a guarantee of pro riches beyond your wildest dreams. For every Joshua/Wilder, there's a story like this one. Hope he is able to find another way to earn some decent money.

    7 eye operations. That is insane. Surely he must have gone against the wishes of his management team/advisors? Let's just hope his vision will be ok later on in life.

    I disagree. After watching the IFL interview it's obvious that he's a terrible talker. I'm sure there's a few more celeb shows on ITV2 and E4 he can do for the next couple of years, but I'd be shocked to see him have a career as a pundit.
