Waith was born in Butetown in Cardiff, and was one of seven children. He was a successful amateur boxer and represented Wales in several tournaments, but after being passed over for the European Under-21 Championship he turned professional.Waith's first professional bout, fighting at featherweight, was on 19 October 1970 when he faced Mickey Vann in Aberavon; Waith won the fight by points decision. His career as a featherweight progressed well, losing just one of his first 19 fights, the majority of them being fought at the National Sporting Club in London. During this period he also recorded the first draw of his career, when he fought Dennis Flynn at the Empire Pool as an undercard fight to the José Nápoles vs Ralph Charles WBA World Welterweight contest.
