Next Tuesday will see the first of two planned celebrations to mark the historic achievements of Lowestoft’s Anthony Ogogo, who beat some of the world’s best amateur boxers on his way to winning a bronze medal in the middleweight division.

A special event is being organised between 5pm and 7pm next Tuesday in Lowestoft town centre to hail the 23-year-old’s achievements.

And it is hoped that thousands of people will descend on Lowestoft town centre for the celebratory event.

The Triple A boxing club member will also be more formally honoured at the next full council meeting of Waveney District Council at Lowestoft Town Hall on September 26.
