The 30-year-old Ogogo won the bronze medal in the Middleweight division during the 2012 London Olympics. He retired from boxing with a professional record of 11-1 in 2016.

Earlier this year, back in June, Ogogo had talked with the Eastern Daily News about his plans to become a professional wrestler.

“I’m seriously considering becoming a professional wrestler,” Ogogo told the publication. “I may join one of the big companies and do some wrestling because it has always been something I’ve enjoyed.”

According to Ogogo, his enjoyment of wrestling began as a bit of a guilty pleasure when he was a kid. While he thought he would “grow out of it” when he grew older, he found his love for it growing even more.

“I think for me it would tick so many boxes. I have been a massive fan of it my entire life, I’m physically – other than my eyes—in the prime of my life. I want to utilize all the years of hard work, all the time in the gym, I’m very fit, very athletic and I think I’m going to give it a go so watch this space,” Ogogo ended up telling the Eastern Daily News.

Ogogo had already begun making inroads into his new career by then, making his debut in February at World Association of Wrestling. He had already caught AEWs eye back in April, where Rhodes talked about him in an episode of Road to Double or Nothing. You can check out Rhodes’ comments about Ogogo at the 6:54 mark in the video below:
