He needed weeks of intensive physiotherapy to repair damaged muscles in his left shoulder.

This put him into the world top 15 at WBF.

Aberdeen Assassin He married fiancee Christine Neville in June 2006. Their first child, Liyah, was born in August 2008.

Fights have been held at the beach ballroom. This includes the memorable one with Stuart Green which lead to him proving he is the Aberdeen Assassin by winning the Scottish Pro Championship with an eighth round knout out. This made him the first Aberdonian Scottish pro champion in 50 years. His weight for this was 9 stone 8lbs and 10oz. He entered the ring to the tune of 500 Miles by The Proclaimers and proved that he's ready to go another 500 Miles and aim for the British Title with a fight hoped for with Lee Meager so that he can claim and wear the coveted Lonsdale Belt. No doubt he'll go on to claim another - perhaps the Commonwealth, European or even the World titles.

He is now ranked number five in the British boxers lightweight rankings. He is the youngest fighter in history to achieve this position. This puts him ahead of Kevin Bennett, the former Commonwealth champion and International Boxing Organisation world contender.
