Pro[edit]

He turned pro in 1997 showing big power in 6 early wins among others over durable Sedreck Fields (KO1). But he became rather inactive, fighting only five times over the next five years before getting outpointed in 2002 by Friday Ahunanya and even KOd by clubfighter Guerrero (record 15-6).
