FORMER boxer Anthony Ogogo made a stunning AEW debut with a devastating win against Cole Karter.

Ogogo, a Team GB Olympian, was forced to give up on his pro boxing dreams after suffering sickening eye injuries.

He had NINE operations in total – and once shared a gruesome photo of his eye BLEEDING when he was out and about.

But the 32-year-old is back on the winning path – in wrestling.

Ogogo has always been a WWE fan, and now he is taking steps into the sports entertainment with AEW.

The Lowestoft fighter has joined QT Marshall’s new stable – and they will have been impressed with what they saw.

Ogogo delivered a brutal body shot that left Karter crumpled in a heap and unable to continue.

The referee waved off the fight and Ogogo’s hand was raised in triumph.

Ogogo, having won all 11 professional fights, was well on his way to the top in boxing until he came up against fellow Brit Craig Cunningham in Birmingham five years ago.

It was a huge shock when he was stopped in the eighth round.

Cunningham — with one blow — shattered his eye socket which resulted in him suffering severe double vision.

Though he did not realise it as he walked back to his dressing room, Ogogo’s career was over at 26.

Reluctantly, he was then forced to announce his retirement from boxing.

Even before his eye problems, he had to overcome a series of injuries that would have filled at least a couple of pages of medical journal The Lancet.

He had eight operations on a troublesome Achilles, plus three shoulder  dislocations, broken bones in his hands, cracked ribs and damaged ligaments and tendons.

But now he is adjusting to life in a new ring – a wrestling one.
