Now Ogogo faces world No.1 Ievgen Khytrov, of Ukraine and accepts: "It will be really hard, he's world champion. But with that crowd and my coaches, the team I've got, I feel I can rise to the occasion.
"The draw's not been kind, but I believe I can beat him. I wouldn't be here if I didn't."
Irish bantamweight John Joe Nevin thrashed Dennis Ceylan, of Denmark, to reach the last 16. Nevin, from a travelling family, was cheered on by hundreds of fans and said he was confident he could win gold.
