The Waterlooville welterweight got his professional license after meeting with members of the British Boxing Board of Control in London yesterday.

For the 19-year-old, it brought him closer to his aspiration to climb the ranks of his weight division as a professional.

All that’s left for Wiseman to do now is pass a medical exam before he can work in the ring – and he’s eyeing a big 2022.

And having not fought since January 2020 because of the coronavirus pandemic, Liam Wiseman is keen to make up for lost time with several professional fights next year.

He said: “They (the BBCoC members) were like where do you see yourself in three years? Within three years I want to have a Southern Zone title and within five years I want to have the British title. They gave me my license in two minutes, they said I have a good frame of mind, my attitude is brilliant, they already saw me as a boxer and they said my style would suit the game perfectly professional.

“We are looking for March (professional debut). I have to pass my medical exam and then I have to have a camp eight weeks in advance.

“I hope I have my medicals before Christmas, I will have an eight week camp immediately starting in January, so I hope in mid-March.”

Although no fight date is currently scheduled, the teenager Wiseman continues his hard work in the gym.

He thinks it is important to keep in great shape to make things “easier” for his professional debut.

Wiseman added, “It just seems like I meet these people who are pretty high up, I get positive feedback all the time.

“I have a lot of pressure on my shoulders, everyone expects me to be successful, which is good.

“I just make my life easier when I go to camp (hard training program). If I stick to it now, when the time is right (for pro debut), it should be easy.

“Especially for my debut, I want it to be big, I don’t just want to have an eight week camp. This is my first outing.
