With twelve wins from his first thirteen fights during his first year as a pro, in October 1978 he beat Joe Lally at the Tower Circus, Blackpool to win the BBBofC Central Area light middleweight title. He lost his next fight, against Carl Bailey, but won eight of his next nine fights, leading to a British title eliminator against Charlie Malarkey at the Kelvin Hall in March 1980; Malarkey took a points decision. In June 1981 he fought British champion Herol Graham at the City Hall, Sheffield, Graham stopping him in the first round. In September 1982 he fought another British title eliminator against Graeme Ahmed, this time winning via a third round stoppage.
