Is it legal for someone to turn pro so young? What's the minimum age for a boxer to turn pro?

Whilst he didn't turn out to be World class we had high hopes that the Gypsy Kid George Collins was going to be.
Turned pro at 17 & racked up a 26 (20) - 0 record before his 20th birthday.
Lost a close battle to the Scotsman Gary Jacobs for the Commonwealth title then got blown out by my favourite Kirkland Laing & never fought again, just after his 22nd birthday.
His younger brother Tony was a decent domestic fighter too & also never fought past his 22nd year.
They're probably running a dodgy roofing firm in Yateley nowadays
