- Promoter has made contact with gold medallist
- ‘He’s asked to have a chat with me’
Lauren Price is to speak to the promoter Eddie Hearn about the prospect of turning professional after winning Olympic gold on Sunday.
The 27-year-old – who appeared 52 times for Wales in football, was a world champion in kickboxing and also competed in taekwondo before switching to boxing – has yet to decide whether to make the switch to becoming a professional, having previously said she would like to defend her middleweight title at the next Olympics in Paris. But in an interview on Wednesday after she returned home from Tokyo, Price revealed that Matchroom promoter had been in touch.
