Anthony Joshua has said that he has made the correct decision in turning professional.
The 23-year-old, who won a gold medal during the 2012 Olympic Games in London, has signed a three-year deal with Eddie Hearn's Matchroom organisation.
"I just want to get the ball rolling," he told The Telegraph. "I realised the improvements I was making so after the Games I thought I could go on to Rio and capture a second gold medal - I looked at that option and I looked at the professional option.
"I'm glad that I fulfilled my dreams at the Games, after that I met with Eddie and talked to a lot of people. I listened and listened and I'm here now after about 10 months and I feel in my heart and in my mind that this is what I want to do."
Joshua will make his professional debut in a six-round fight at the O2 Arena on October 5.
