Dagenham youngster TJ Waller hopes to follow in the footsteps of his older brother Regan and enjoy great success on the London youth scene.

Regan, who has won plenty of awards in a fledgling career, recently revealed that he plans to turn professional once he turns 18.

And though it may be a long way off for seven-year-old TJ, if his recent results are anything to go by, the Five Star BC prospect has the talent to follow his older brother into the paid ranks.

On a recent Dagenham BC show, TJ came up against two opponents, but held himself well.

The younger of the Waller brothers fought a young rival from Repton and an Islington prospect on the night as he continues his development.

“TJ is only seven, but he’s had about seven gym bouts and is coming along nicely,” said father Les. “TJ seems to be taking after his brother!”
