Former amateur champion Aujee "Quick" Tyler of Temple Hills, MD has signed a promotional contract with ProBox Management of Florida and is slated to make his pro debut in the near future.
The 19-year-old Tyler was a two-time National Silver Gloves champion, a five-time Ringside Champion and won titles at the Junior Olympics and the National PAL Tournament.
Tyler will compete as a bantamweight and recently spent time in Florida in the camp of WBA Bantamweight champion Juan Carlos Payano.
Henry Rivalta, who heads ProBox Management along with Garry Jonas, told BoxingScene.com that he is looking for good things from his new signee.
"The kid was one of the best in the world in the amateurs," Rivalta said. "We're ready to give him a fresh start and a bright future. We truly believe he is something special."
