Ireland's youngest professional boxer James Power is relocating from Cork to Los Angeles.
The 18-year-old super-featherweight from Dripsey has signed a deal with Sheer Sports Management, which will see him move to California in the near future.
He will join Donegal middleweight Jason Quigley, unbeaten Monaghan brothers, Aaron and Stephen McKenna, and Brett McGinty on the books of Ken Sheer's company.
Power, who began his career aged 17 in Mexico when still too young to box professionally in Ireland, has a 5-0 (4KOs) record, and completed his Leaving Cert last summer.
