Lowestoft boxer Anthony Ogogo suffered his first professional defeat to Chris Cunningham last night.
The 2012 Olympic bronze medallist was retired by his corner in the eighth round with blurred vision, as Cunningham, secured the WBC International middleweight title at the NEC arena in Birmingham.
Ogogo was sent stumbling to the ground as early as the second round, after Cunningham landed a strong right hook.
The undefeated boxer continually struggled from the on and failed to recover, with Ogogo's trainer Tony Sims eventually pulling him out of the fight.
Police are appealing for help to trace a man who approached a 17-year-old girl in Lowestoft.
The incident took place around 12:25pm on Thursday 6 October at Station Square.
The girl was walking alone when the man approached her and tried to encourage her to go with him to find a lost puppy, which he described as a ‘rainbow-coloured dachshund’.
The girl felt uncomfortable about the situation and walked away unharmed.
Police would like to speak to the man, who is described as white, in his 20’s and with long blonde hair. He is of small to medium build and was wearing jeans and a hoody.
Anybody with information is asked to call Suffolk Police on 101.
Lowestoft boxer Anthony Ogogo will finally fight for his first professional title later this month.

However, he is unbeaten in three fights after making a comeback in May.
Ogogo and Cunningham will go head-to-head as part of the undercard for the Frankie Gavin and Sam Eggington bout at the Barclaycard Arena.
