Default Re: why wont good amateurs turn pro?

Cuz they were bronzes.

Cuban boxers do not to pro because of politics in cuba - they are not allowed to professionally compete, so they can either stay as amateurs, or defect (leave the country, gain asylum somewhere else, this will mean leaving their families behind).

Bit of a catch 22.
