Nevin changes his mind of being a pro

Irish Olympic star John Joe Nevin has changed his mind on turn pro with Amir Khan’s Super Fight Promotions as previously announced and has opted to stay in the amateur ranks and will now be competing in the forthcoming World Series of Boxing.

Amir Khan, founder of Super Fight Promotions, told DAILY SPORT: “It’s disappointing that John Joe will be staying amateur as I firmly believe that he has the potential to make big waves in the professional scene. Nevertheless, I respect his decision to represent the British Lionhearts in the World Series of Boxing and do not rule out the possibility of working with him in the future.”
