Professional career

Also known as "Method Man", Matthews turned pro in 1995 and won the vacant World Boxing Organization inter-continental middleweight title with a victory against Paul Wright in 1997, then won the commonwealth Middleweight Title against Paul Silky Jones in 1998. He then won the middleweight interim title on 17 June 1999 with a victory against Ryan Rhodes.

Matthews lost the title to Armand Krajnc by TKO in 1999 in his first defence. Matthews announced his retirement from boxing after the bout (Due to an eye injury, which occurred during the fight).
