London 2012 Olympic bronze medallist Anthony Ogogo has become the first Team GB medallist to turn pro - and in a surprising move he has refused any domestic opportunities and signed up with America's Golden Boy Promotions.
Middleweight Ogogo, 24, had previously indicated that he would like to remain an amateur and continue to Rio 2016 but, understandably, the lure of professional terms and a new life in the States has proven too strong.
His debut could come in February.
"Anthony Ogogo has everything you look for in a boxer," said GBP CEO Richard Schaefer. "He can fight, he has style and charisma and he has amazing crossover potential.
"I have no doubt that Anthony has the skills in the ring and the personality outside of it to make him a global boxing star."
