The 33-year-old, who turned professional in 2016 and became Welsh champion just over a year later, became holder of the Lonsdale belt in April 2022 following victory over Luke Willis before twice defending against fellow Welshman Craig Woodruff, with the first meeting scored a draw.

A breakthrough for the Merthyr Tydfil-born star came when he upset the odds to defeat home fighter Sean McComb in February 2021, punching the Irishman into a seventh round retirement to win the Commonwealth title. This followed unsuccessful challenges for the British title against Joe Cordina and James Tennyson.

Gwynne fought for the vacant EBU European lightweight title against Emiliano Marsili, with the Italian retiring in the 8th round. Gwynne would next face domestic rival Mark Chamberlain on the ‘Knockout Chaos’ card in Riyadh. Gwynne sustained heavy damage to his eye with his corner stopping the fight.
