Team GB Olympic boxing captain 28yo Tom Stalker has hung up his amateur gloves to seek pro glory after signing with Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom Boxing.

Scouser Stalker will make his debut on February 23rd at York Hall in London on the Prizefighter International Heavyweights III bill which features Audley Harrison, Martin Rogan, Ian Lewison and Travis Walker.

The light-welter will then have his second outing on home soil on the ‘No Retreat, No Surrender’ on March 30th when light-heavy Tony Bellew takes on Isaac Chilemba in a final eliminator for the WBC title.

“I feel I am going to be exciting to watch as a professional boxer,” said Stalker. “I felt it was time for me to turn professional now and see how far I can go. I have done everything I could possibly do as an amateur, bar winning an Olympic medal.”
