Nickname - known as ‘Duracell’ for his ‘non-stop action, as he just keeps going & going’
Professional career history
28 Fights: 21 Wins (10 KO's)
Currently Number 7 in WBO Featherweight WORLD Rankings
Current WBO Intercontinental Featherweight Champion
Former WBO European Super-Featherweight, English Super-Featherweight and IBO Intercontinental champion (titles retained).
Career highlights include clinching No.10 ranking with the WBO in front of his Crawley fans in February 2013 with a landslide points win over Kris Hughes.
For round after round, he kept Hughes under fire on the ropes with wave after wave of two-fisted attacks and after 12 one-sided rounds of non-stop action, all three judges had him well ahead.
Wherever he fights, Ben entertains. He's nicknamed 'Duracell' because he just keeps throwing punches and his non-stop attacks have been too much for top talents including Akaash Bhatia.
That win secured the English belt and he has also held the IBO International lightweight titles.
Ben was a very good amateur, he reached the semi-finals of the ABA championships, and ditched a promising football career with Fulham FC to punch for pay.
Won three fights with KOs in last five months in build up to next title challenge later this year.
