Bushey boxer Miles Shinkwin overcame a dislocated hand to extend the unbeaten start to his professional career and is now targeting at title before the end of 2013.

Shinkwin was sixth on the bill of Frank Warren's Rule Britannia show at Wembley Arena on Saturday, which was headlined by victorious WBO light heavyweight world champion Nathan Cleverly.

The former Bushey Boxing Club member won all four rounds of the light heavyweight fight with Mitch Mitchell at the weekend and knocked him to the canvas in the third.

Shinkwin enjoyed a good amateur career, which included winning the Junior ABA title and beating Olympic bronze medalist Anthony Ogogo.

The 24-year-old has won every round of his three professional fights so far and Shinkwin is hoping to secure either a local or national title by the end of this year.

He said: "Before the end of 2013 I would like to fight for a Southern Area title or maybe even an English title.

"I don't want to sound arrogant but I'm not worried about fighting anyone and I don't like calling people out but I'm not scared of anyone.

"If they said you are fighting for a Southern Area title tomorrow then I would be ready and confident."

The light heavyweight, who is trained by Jason Rowland, does not expect his dislocated hand to cause problems moving forward.

He dislocated his left hand in training on Wednesday and the physio advised him not to fight. But for ex-Queens School pupil stated pulling out of the fight was not an option, with more than 200 fans buying tickets, and the bone was put back in place on Thursday.

Shinkwin suffered with the pain early on but adrenaline helped him through and by the third round he was throwing bigger punches and knocked Mitchell down with a shot to the body.

"It was definitely my best performance yet," Shinkwin said this afternoon.

"I was a lot faster than him and I upped it in the third round. Mitchell said afterwards that he didn't want to continue after the knock-down in the third but because there was only another round to go, he knew he only had another three minutes left.

"I think I would have stopped him if my hand was alright but boxing is about winning and I wanted to make sure I did that."

Watford Observer:

Shinkwin has won his first three professional fights on points and he has been working on his power with strength and conditioning coach Joe Reemer.

He said: "It is about progression at this stage of my career; I want to get rid of some of my amateur habits in terms of point scoring and add new parts to my boxing.

"I didn't want to turn pro and just become a slugger; I want to add power to the skills I already have.

"If you compare my last fight to my first then you would see my power has become a lot better and part of that is down to my strength and conditioning coach (Reemer)."

Shinkwin, whose sponsors include B&L General Builders, Ray Clarke Design and Print and SRD Recruitment, was wearing a memorial t-shirt on Saturday night in memory of Garston's Daniel Seabrook, who died recently.

The boxer has benefitted from sparring with former England team-mate George Groves in recent months and he is hoping to secure more time in the ring with the rising star before Groves fights again in May, with Shinkwin targeting a fourth professional fight around June.

Shinkwin said: "My hand is still swollen but it is a lot better than it was on Saturday. So I would hope to fight around June but it depends on when I'm back punching.

"I will maintain my fitness and I start back running tonight and then I will be able to fight again a few weeks after I'm back punching."

Mitchell Smith, who was also a member at Bushey Boxing Club and lives in Harrow Weald, increased his growing reputation with a first-round stoppage of Gavin Read as part of the Rule Britannia show at Wembley Arena.
