Alex Branson-Cole is vowing not to rest on his laurels after winning his second professional fight.
Faversham’s Branson-Cole, 29, beat CJ Wood at the Circus Tavern in Purfleet, Essex, on Saturday.
But the middleweight, who works as a roofer, doesn’t want to stop there.
“Hopefully I can get out in September,” he said. “I want to be busy.
"A lot of these fighters want two fights a year, but I don’t want that.
“I want to be busy. Hopefully I can get out in September and showcase my skills more regularly.
“I want to start pushing forward. This was my second pro fight and it was a six-rounder.
“Not many people do a six-rounder in their second fight but that’s what I wanted to do. I wanted a six-rounder in my first fight but it’s difficult to find the right opponent and get that organised.
“My next fight, I want to be an eight or 10-rounder.”
Weekend opponent Wood was a more experienced professional fighter but proved no match for the boxer who trains at Creekside Boxing Club.
“It was good. It was a good bout and a good win for me,” he reflected.
“My trainer [Ian Fleckney] had seen him box before and my trainer studied him really well. He set a game-plan and we executed it.
“Everything my trainer told me he was going to do - from round one until round six - he did. I believe what my trainer says, so I kind of knew what was going to happen in a way.
“From round one to round six, we just stuck to the game-plan and got the win.
"The first two rounds were a bit slow, just working the jab. The third round, I started to go down to the body.
“Then fourth, fifth and sixth round, we just picked up the pace, chucking a lot of combinations in.”
Branson-Cole was also backed by dozens of fans who headed to Essex to get behind him.
He stated: “There were around 75 to 80, so there was a good crowd [supporting him]. I tried to say hello to everyone but I was in the zone.
“But the support was unbelievable, really, and very much appreciated with people spending their hard-earned money to come and support me.”
Branson-Cole thanked sponsors Hadley Electrical Services, Simcig Limited, Boosted, Diamond Carpentry and Building Services and Kent Surfacing Ltd for their support.
“They have helped me out with sponsorship which has helped with my nutrition and a few other aspects of getting ready for my fights,” he added.
Branson-Cole's great-grandfather, Albert Bone, had also been a professional boxer.
