Born in Millwall, London in 1955, Batten started boxing at the age of 6, taking it up more seriously at the age of 10, and had a successful junior amateur career, winning three national schoolboy titles, two junior ABA titles and an NABC championship, going unbeaten for five and a half years.He turned professional in 1974, training under Terry Lawless at the Royal Oak gym in Canning Town, and won 16 of his first 18 fights, which included a victory over former British title challenger Kevin White, leading to his facing Albert Hillman at the Royal Albert Hall in February 1977 for the British light middleweight title vacated by Maurice Hope; Hillman retired in the seventh round, making Batten the third man to hold the title, at the age of 21.
