Ricky Hatton is the latest in line waiting to convince James DeGale he should turn pro with him.
No sooner had the Olympic champion returned from a courtship with Oscar De La Hoya in the States last week - when the famed 'Hitman' stepped up to also lead the Dale Youth club boxer down the road to fame and fortune.
Hammersmith-born DeGale has had Frank Warren, David Haye, De La Hoya and a list of boxing's who's-who hoping to tempt the west Londoner with deals for his conversion to the professional ranks - expected next month.
"I've met Ricky Hatton before and while I don't know him all that well, he's somebody that I admire a lot," said DeGale - who is an ambassador for the BBC Sports Unsung Hero Award, supported by Robinsons.
"I'm supposed to be going up to meet him on Sunday and speak to him on his new chat show.
"He's got his boxing promotions company, Punch Promotions, and that's something that could definitely be of interest to me in the future.
"I haven't spoken to him properly yet but I'll listen to what he has to say. When someone like that comes along you certainly have to think about it."
With inevitable similarities drawn between DeGale and other Olympic success stories Audley Harrison and Amir Khan, the west Londoner is brimming with confidence about his potential as a professional. And he insists his talents will not come cheap with anything less than £2million over two years deemed unacceptable.
"It's a very difficult decision to make," he added.
"But there is no doubt in my mind whatsoever that the pro game would suit me and my whole style - I was born for the big time.
"It hasn't worked out for Audley (Harrison) really, and Amir (Khan) has been struggling a bit of late, but I've been in a professional gym and I'm Olympic champion - I know I could hold my own.
"All I can say is everyone will know what I'm doing by the beginning of November."
