Pro boxing in the states @ the highest levels(Top Rank, GoldenBoy) depends on who you know and who knows you. Depending on the fighters amateur experience the door is open, but only for the very best, and preferably with no newbie's. Newbie's in the business(include managers, money investors lawyers) tend to not know the business and how much is on the table and worst of all try to re-invent the wheel.
So, yes it's who you know and what connections you have.
