On January 29, 2010 Love made his professional debut by knocking out Vince Burkhalter in the first round of a four-round middleweight bout. Love knocked Burkhalter down twice before the referee reached the count of 10 at 1:33.
On May 4, 2013 Love fought Gabriel Rosado on the undercard of Floyd Mayweather vs Robert Guerrero. Prior to the fight, Love came two hours late to the weigh-in, and at the weigh-in he was 1.5 lbs over the weight limit. He took an extra hour to make the weight and was fined $100 as a result. The fight was very close, and although Love won by split decision, the majority of viewers thought that Rosado actually won the fight. The judges' score cards read 95-94 97-92 for Love and 95-94 for Rosado.
After the fight, Love tested positive for hydrochlorothiazide, a diuretic used by athletes to cut weight. The drug is banned by the Nevada State Athletic Commission. Because of the failed drug test, the decision was overturned from a split decision win for Love to a no contest.
