While based in Belgium, Platov fought for his first title belt against Belarusian Igor Shukala in Brussels, Belgium for the vacant WBC World Youth heavyweight title. Platov knocked the previously unbeaten Shukala out in the first round to take the title.

On November 4, 2006, he fought the former #1 contender Henry Akinwande and won a split decision. This is so far his greatest achievement as Akinwande's record at the time was 49–2 and he had fought for the WBC title against Lennox Lewis previously. His last fight was in December 2007 against Danny Williams, another former title contender. The fight ended with a no-decision after Platov was cut over the left eye following an accidental headbutt and the referee stopped the fight. Some critics and Williams himself have contested the stoppage, calling it premature.

Platov's next fight will take place on November 8, against Jason Gavern, in Bamberg, Germany. The fight was rescheduled for December 20 and Platov won a clear 8-round decision, flooring Gavern in the sixth round. This brought his record up to 27–1.

Platov recently fought Daniil Peretyatko on June 27, 2009 and won the fight by unanimous decision.
