TROWBRIDGE'S Dan Blackwell failed to pull off an upset as he was beaten by Olympic star Anthony Ogogo in London on Saturday night.

The 20-year-old Contender Gym fighter did his best to contain London 2012 bronze medallist Ogogo at the ExCel Arena but was put on the back foot for the majority of the six-round contest.

Blackwell did manage to wobble his opponent in the penultimate round but fell to a unanimous decision in front of the television cameras.
