Thomas Stalker has said that he is pleased to have started his professional boxing career with a win.
The 28-year-old, who was the Team GB boxing captain at the 2012 Olympics, beat Kristian Laight in a four-round contest at York Hall last night.
The Liverpudlian told Sky Sports News: "I felt a bit flat to be honest and it's going to take a few more fights to get into my groove.
"He's a good journeyman, knows all the tricks and he's learnt me something in there, so I'm happy.
"I'm learning to sink my punches in a bit more, I'm loving it in the gym and I'm going to learn with each fight."
The light-welterweight is due to appear on the undercard for Tony Bellew's fight in Liverpool on March 30.
