After winning all of his first 14 fights, he faced (the also unbeaten) Miles Shinkwin on 27 February 2016 at the Manchester Arena for the British light heavyweight title vacated by Bob Ajisafe. He had Shinkwin down in the second and fifth rounds and stopped him in the sixth to become British champion.
