Beijing Olympian Kal Yafai has declared that he is ready to step up in class after easing his way into life in professional boxing.
Yafai signed a deal with Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn back in June after missing out on a place at London 2012 and has rattled off three quick victories in the pro ranks.
The 24-year-old believes that he is progressing at a steady rate and shared that he wants to keep stepping up in class in the latter part of 2012.
He said: "Everything is going smoothly and going to plan, which is what I expected. Things are getting better and better each week, I am getting more and more used to the pro game and I am really enjoying things at the moment.
"Eddie has it all planned out for me. I step up again to an eight rounder in Nottingham and then I will have another one in December and that will be the year done. Then we will sit down and take a look at what the plan is for the year ahead."
