Westmeath boxer Joe Ward looks set to leave the amateur ranks a year before the Tokyo Olympics.

The light-heavyweight has won three European Amateur gold medals along with two silver and one bronze from the World Championship in a glittering career.

Ward also won gold at the 2009 World Junior and 2010 World Youth Championships at middleweight and light middleweight before stepping up to his current division at senior level.
