According to reports, Ireland's John Joe Nevin is set to turn
pro with Amir Khan's new Super Fight Promotions.
The bantamweight, who won a silver medal at this summer's London
Olympic Games, has some experience of boxing without a vest and
head guard after appearing the World Series of Boxing (WSB).
Nevin said that he will be making an official announcement on
the Irish television network RTE this evening.
If the story is true, he'll be the second standout amateur to
sign with Khan's new company this week.
On Wednesday the former WBA and IBF light-welterweight champion
confirmed that he signed his younger brother Haroon, a bronze
medallist for Pakistan at the 2010 Commonwealth Games.
