Harvey Dykes has big plans for the New Year after an impressive win to close 2023.

The Brighton heavyweight scored a convincing points win in his second professional bout.

He beat Canadian prospect Tyler Tremblett over six rounds in the Cayman Islands.

Tremblett had won two of his previous three fights and the step up to six rounds was seen as a big one for Dykes.

But he won every round and was close to a stoppage late in the second and again midway through the fifth.

Dykes’ coach Luke Hewett said: “He boxed really well and looked very sharp.

“He has taken to the pro game like a duck to water and he was over the moon with the fight.”

Dykes is climbing the rankings but is looking at a switch to cruiserweight.

He told FightZone: “Next year is going to be a completely different year.

“We are going to work our way down and by 2025 will be ready for titles.

“I am a little bit too small for heavyweight but I have got that style.

“I can fight, I can box, I can mix it up – whatever.

“I feel like, when I am hitting cruiserweights, I am hurting them a bit more.

“Their speed is unbelievable but I am carrying a lot of weight at the minute.”

He will now enjoy a short Christmas break and will then be back at work with hopes of another fight in February.

Dykes, who has sizeable local support, made his professional debut at the Brighton Centre recently with a four-round points decision over Erik Nazaryan from Georgia in a televised late night bout to wrap up the Eubank v Schwarzkopf bill.
