Bogs was born to Poul Bogs, the 1947-1950 Danish champion in shot put. His younger sister Maibritt held the national title in the discus throw, yet Bogs turned to boxing and competed at the 1964 Summer Olympics in the light-middleweight division. He reached the quarter-finals, where he lost to Nojim Maiyegun of Nigeria. Bogs turned professional shortly after the games and was active during the 1960s and 1970s, building up an unbeaten record of 53 wins and one draw. He suffered his first defeat against the former world welterweight and middleweight champion Emile Griffith in a non-title fight in June 1970.Bogs won the European light-heavyweight title in 1968 when he stopped German champion Lothar Stengel in the first round of the bout. He successfully defended the title against Piero Del Papa before moving down to the middleweight division for a title match against European champion Carlos Duran. Bogs defeated Duran and went on to successfully defend his middleweight title three times before losing a rematch to Duran in 1970.
