PROFESSIONAL featherweights beware. Cuban amateur sensation Robeisy Ramirez is turning over.

The 25-year-old has signed a deal with promotional giants Top Rank, and will make his debut this summer.

Regarded as one of the top pound-for-pound amateurs in the world, Ramirez picked up gold medals at both the 2012 and 2016 Olympic Games. In July last year, during a training camp in Mexico, the highly skilled southpaw left the Cuban boxing team, which proved to be a prelude to defecting from his home nation and entering the pro game.
