Richard Torrez Jr. is heading to the Top (Rank)…
The 22-year-old Mexican American boxer, who claimed a silver medal at the 2020 Tokyo Games this summer, has reportedly signed a multiyear promotional deal with Top Rank, according to ESPN.
Torrez, from Tulare, California, is set to make his pro debut in early 2022, per sources, and will campaign at heavyweight.
Top Rank’s haul beefs up a prospect stable that includes heavyweight Jared Anderson, Olympic silver medalist Duke Ragan, Troy Isley Jr. and Xander Zayas.
Torrez lost to Bakhodir Jalolov in his attempt to bring gold back to the United States.
Now, he will develop on ESPN platforms as he pursues title shots in the pros.
