Maynard began his professional career the following year for the Team of Mike Trainer/Sugar Ray Leonard. Maynard himself insisted his management team change his style, and they turned him into a fighter who fought too defensively.
Maynard won his first 12 bouts in the light heavyweight division (175 lbs), prior to getting stopped in the seventh round by Bobby Czyz. Maynard then went on a six fight winning streak, stopping former world light heavyweight champion Matthew Saad Muhammad in 1991, setting up a fight with Frank Tate. Tate dropped Maynard in the 11th round, prompting referee Joe Santarpia to stop the fight.
The following year Maynard moved up to cruiserweight to challenge WBC World Cruiserweight champion Anaclet Wamba, who knocked Maynard down and won a unanimous decision.
After losing to Wamba, Maynard fought on in obscurity. Among his notable fights which followed were a knockout loss to Thomas Hearns and a stoppage at heavyweight to Brian Nielsen. Maynard retired in 2000 and lives in Harlingen, Texas with his common law wife Cynthia Ann Montgomery
