Lowestoft boxer Anthony Ogogo has had surgery to repair a broken eye socket as he starts his road to recovery.

It is understood the operation went well but that the 27-year-old will be under careful surveillance to see how his right eye settles down.

The Olympic bronze medallist has been keeping a low profile since suffering his first defeat as a professional against Craig Cunningham last month.

Ogogo released a statement shortly after the fight where it was confirmed he had suffered a broken eye socket in two places, which a specialist said had been suffered prior to the bout.

Ogogo has been to see several different eye specialists since the fight to ascertain the best way to combat the problem.
