Born in Nottingham, Bryan's professional career began in 1986. His early results were mixed and included a defeat to George Collins and a win over Daren Dyer in 1987. In October 1987 he won his first title by beating Gary Sommervile to take the Midlands Area welterweight title. He won six of his next eight fights, which included wins over Lloyd Christie and Javier Castillejo, and a defeat to Gary Jacobs, before successfully defending his area title against Michael Justin. In April 1990 he beat Damian Denny in a British title eliminator, setting up a challenge to Kirkland Laing's welterweight title. Bryan met Laing in January 1991 at the Royal Albert Hall, and took the fight on points to become British champion. He successfully defended the title in November against Mickey Hughes but lost it to Jacobs in his second defence three months later. Three months later he was stopped in the tenth round by Dyer.
