Anthony Ogogo will enjoy a well earned rest after dispatching Bronislav Kubin with ease for this third victory in seven weeks in Berlin.

Ogogo looks to have finally put his injury woes behind him and was far too good for Kubin, who was knocked down five times inside two rounds before the referee belatedly stopped the contest.

The victory follows successes against Gary Cooper and Frane Radnic in the last two months and Ogogo looks to have blown away the cobwebs following his rehabilitation from shoulder surgery.

The 27-year-old knows that bigger changes lie ahead but wants to start fighting for titles before the end of the year.

“After another six to eight weeks I will be ready for anyone,” said Ogogo, whose win in the German capital takes his record to 11-0. “If they have got titles then I’m coming for you.

“Chris Eubank Jnr looks very beatable to me and I think I would beat Tommy Langford (Commonwealth champion) comfortably.

“I just want belts and titles – if I beat names on the way then great.”

It’s been a hectic 2016 so far for Ogogo, who is looking to make up for lost time following his injury problems.

He is looking to release his foot off the accelerator for a couple of weeks now before another busy period towards the end of the year.

“Since my shoulder operation I haven’t stopped,” he added. “It’s been non stop rehab and obviously in the last few months, non stop training.

“I’ve not taken any time off so after this fight I’m just going to give myself a couple of weeks.

“I will still do the rehab work on my shoulder – I have to – but I will just take it a bit easier.

“I’m hoping it’s going to be a very exciting end to the year.”
