British Ogogo topples middleweight world champion

London, England (Sports Network) - Great Britain's Anthony Ogogo scored a big upset Thursday, when he took out Ukraine's Ievgen Khytrov, the top seed in the middleweight draw.

Khytrov is the reigning world champion, but Ogogo fought him to a draw on points. He won on a judge's decision following a countback.

"I will sleep like a baby tonight," Ogogo said.

Through to the quarterfinals, he will next fight German Stefan Hartel on Monday.

Two Americans, middleweight Terrell Gausha and lightweight Jose Ramirez, both lost.
