Anthony Ogogo reveals that it would be hard to turn professional because of his love for the amateur ranks.

Anthony Ogogo has admitted that he will seek advice from Team GB's performance director Rob McCracken before deciding whether to turn professional.

The 23-year-old claimed a bronze medal at the Olympics and insists that it would be hard to turn his back on the amateur ranks.

"I love the amateur game," Ogogo told "I love the environment. I love how pure the sport is. Each country's best fighter going head to head to see who the very best is and I love representing my country.

"That being said how can you top a home Olympics? We have a great performance director in Rob McCracken that knows the fight game, amateur and professional inside and out. The whole program wants the best for each and every one of us, so I'm sure Rob and the team will give me the best advice."

McCracken is the current trainer of world champion Carl Froch.
