Wilson's interest in boxing started as a teenager but he was a relative latecomer to the professional ranks, turning professional at 27.
He made his debut at the Grosvenor Hotel in Sheffield in April 2007 and stopped Peter Cannon in round five. Since then, he has suffered a series of injuries and has also seen his career slowed down by multiple pull-outs by opponents. Being a bit more active in 2012–13 saw him pick up the BBBofC Central Area and British Masters middleweight titles.
Wilson returned in September 2015, beating Dan Blackwell on points. In November 2015, Wilson challenged for Lewis Taylor's English middleweight title. Taylor stopped him in the fifth round. Wilson tested positive for the diuretic furosemide after the fight, and in March 2016 received a two-year ban from the sport, despite the UKAD accepting that he had taken the drug inadvertently.
