Former world champion Amir Khan's younger brother Haroon has decided to turn professional.

Haroon, 21, has been signed by Amir's new promotions company Super Fight Promotions, and has no doubts that he can achieve great things.

"I've always wanted to turn professional and to do so under Super Fight Promotions was an opportunity that I couldn't turn down," said Haroon.

"I have big ambitions but will take things a step at a time. I know I've got the best team behind me who have that experience to help guide my career to the very top."

After watching his younger brother earn a bronze medal at the 2010 Commonwealth Games, Amir is certain that Haroon will do well.

"He's got a lot of talent and I know he can achieve a lot," said Amir.

"His amateur record will serve him well and I have no doubts his decision to turn professional will prove to be a very fruitful one."

Haroon won flyweight bronze at the 2010 Games representing Pakistan as he was overlooked by English selectors.
