Based in London, Currie had his first professional fight in February 1981, a win over Mick Chmilowskyi. After an undistinguished start to his professional career in which he won only three of his first eight fights, a run of five straight wins led to a challenge for the Southern Area title against Funso Banjo; Banjo won on points over ten rounds.Currie then travelled to the United States where he won both his fights, and in September 1985 he fought Banjo once again, this time for the vacant British heavyweight title; Currie won an 11-round points decision to become British champion. His next fight was an eliminator for the Commonwealth title against Proud Kilimanjaro, which he won over 10 rounds. He lost his British title at the first defence to Horace Notice in April 1986, Notice winning by a 6th-round TKO. Currie won four of his next 5 fights, including a 2nd-round knockout of Glenn McCrory, leading to another shot at the then vacant British title against Gary Mason; Mason won by a fourth-round knockout.
