Rob McCracken, Performance Director at GB Boxing said: "It has been very good working with Tom over the last three years, when he has shown himself to be a fine boxer with the ability to win medals at major tournaments. "It is disappointing for us that Tom has decided his future lies away from the GB Boxing squad but he departs with our best regards, and we wish him every success in his future career." Anthony Ogogo, who won a bronze medal at London 2012, was the first of the Team GB fighters to sign a professional contract last month, joining Oscar de la Hoya's Golden Boy Promotions.
