Olympic silver medalist John Joe Nevin is expected to announce later tonight that he is turning professional, according to reports.

Olympic silver medalist John Joe Nevin is expected to announce his decision to turn professional on Irish television later today.

Nevin impressed for Ireland at London 2012, making the bantamweight final before being edged out by Team GB standout Luke Campbell.

The 23-year-old took to Twitter earlier this week to tease that all will be revealed this weekend.

He said: "Hi everyone tune into rte Saturday night for the Saturday night show where I'm announcing my decision thanks for all the support everyone."

Nevin's performances at London 2012 have seen the popular Irishman linked with a host of promoters during the last month, including a potential deal to join Amir Khan's promotional stable.
