Ogogo eased to victory in Glasgow on Saturday to record his fifth professional victory, comfortably defeating Greg O'Neill on points over the scheduled six rounds.

Olympic bronze medalist Ogogo is now looking forward to fighting in Vegas and starring on the same bill as one of his heroes in the shape of the unbeaten Mayweather.

"So many fighters never get the chance to fight in America, let alone in Las Vegas and let alone on the undercard of the greatest boxer of our generation.

To do this in my sixth fight is going to be unbelievable. I just can't wait."
