There's another Amateur middleweight called Tommy Philbin from Edinburgh who has an electric style for the pro's and would have won the Scottish Championships this year had it not been for pulling out of the semi's due to an operation. If he turns pro soon enough he will sell a lot of tickets IMO.

John Thain also has one of the most likeable personalities in boxing, if he keeps winning and continues to be impressive, he could become a big ticket seller, he's got an entertaining style too.
Ive been in boxing a long time a boxers will swear blind they'll do this amount and that amount of tickets in reality the high percentage simply dont do enough and dont think they need to do it in some cases!
