He has defeated former British heavyweight champion Scott Gamer and former WBO world champion Lamon Brewster. After breaking a bone in the knuckles of his right hand he still managed to defeat Gbenga Oloukun in 2010. In the same year he won the EU heavyweight title in a fight against Gregory Tony, and defended the title later in the year with a technical knockout in the second round against Swedish boxer Attila Levin. He won the WBO Inter-continental title, which he was to defend in 2011 against Samuel Peter.
