Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury warned fans are dropping boxing for UFC en masse by AEW star Anthony Ogogo
ANTHONY OGOGO has warned British boxers to prioritize fans or risk dropping them for the UFC – as he sees in the United States.
Bettors were frustrated to see the massive heavyweight clash between Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua knocked out by legal wrangling.
Brit Ogogo, 32, was forced to retire from boxing two years ago after a devastating eye injury.
But he told SunSport: “There is no way the fight will take place in Saudi Arabia, this fight can only take place at Wembley Stadium.
“Two British world champions, that MUST happen at Wembley.”
Ogogo embarked on a new career in the United States in the new All Elite Wrestling, led by Fulham co-owner Tony Khan.
Former Olympian Ogogo won middleweight bronze in London 2012 but is barely recognizable after gaining momentum for his new career.
He faces off against Cody Rhodes – the son of WWE legend Dusty – at tomorrow’s Double or Nothing pay-per-view event while healing a broken rib.
He added, “Here now in America, the UFC is much bigger than boxing.
“For me and Cody’s weigh-in and confrontation, everyone’s saying, ‘We’re going to do a UFC-style weigh-in.’
“And I surely think a UFC-style weigh-in is a boxing-style weigh-in?”
“People love the UFC here – the fights are easier, more regularly, there is no 12 to 15 month build-up.
“A lot of times when you build that much it’s a bummer.

“Mayweather vs. Pacquiao was a great fight, but it should have been four years earlier.
“They let the fans down and ultimately what will put them off is to watch boxing and more and more fans will go to MMA and the UFC.
“It’s a shame because boxing is the best sport in the world.”
