Top amateur, GB squad member Sam Maxwell goes pro

SAM MAXWELL has turned professional. The former GB squad member has signed with MGM Marbella and will make his pro debut in Liverpool on October 7.

Salisbury’s Maxwell is a highly experienced amateur. He won the ABA and GB championships domestically as well as securing a bronze medal at the Commonwealth Games. In a 2012 Olympic qualification tournament the Liverpudlian beat the highly regarded Russian Albert Selimov.

He’s also served a professional apprenticeship in the World Series of Boxing, the hybrid league in which Maxwell has boxed against the very best opposition in the world. He also endured two five-round bouts with none other than Vasyl Lomachenko, the two-time Olympic gold medallist and now professional world champion.
