Andrew Selby has followed his world champion brother Lee Selby into the professional boxing ranks.
The 26-year-old is the younger sibling of the IBF featherweight king and after enjoying a stellar career as an amateur that included a world championship silver medal, has signed a deal with his brother's advisor Chris Sanigar.
Selby - a flyweight - said in a statement: "It was an honour to represent Team GB. I would like to thank Robert McCracken and all of the coaching team, management and backroom staff who supported me through my amateur career.
"I feel the time is right for me to pursue a pro boxing career and I can't wait for the big fights ahead."
In addition to his 2011 medal in Baku, the Welshman won a world championship bronze in Almaty two years later.
