Ross entered the 2000 Olympics as a gold medal hopeful, however he was eliminated after a disappointing loss in his first fight with a knockout at the 2nd round by a Nigerian boxer Jegbefumere Albert
Ross turned pro after the 2000 Summer Olympics, however he announced his retirement in 2005 after compiling an impressive record of 13-1, due to the inability to get quality fights.

In 2008 Troy joined the cast of the boxing reality TV show The Contender filming in Singapore.
