In his early fights he beat journeymen Paul Bonson and Hastings Rasani (who give prime World title challenger Sosnowski his second toughest fight)on points, before winning the Prizefighter series in April 2010 beating Leon Williams, Mark Krence and Nick Okoth. In July, however, he suffered a shock tko loss to Tyrone Wright, and followed it up by retiring on his stool against Richard Turba, after suffering a suspected broken jaw.

Then Dickinson returned big in July 2011 with a new hunger and determination. The leaner focused Dickinson stormed through 2011 with a win over 2002 Commonwealth Games gold medallist David Dolan before beating Chris Burton in early 2012.

Winning the prestigious 'prizefighter' cup.

2012 then saw Dickinson smash undefeated Matty Askin to pieces beating him by UD which then earned the big man a shot at Enzo 'Big Mac' conqueror Shane McPhilbin. The judges' scorecards gave a fair reflection, rewarding Dickinson for his higher workrate throughout (118-110, 118-110, 117-111).

Now with having conquered all of Britain and making Dickinson probably the best CW in the World it's time to move onwards and upwards to the HW division where a battle with the long past it Russian Klitschko brothers looms.

Some say Jon Lewis Dickinson doesn't really have a style. He relies on his incredible God given height, speed and quickness and never really learned how to box in the conventional sense. For most of Dickinson's career, he was operating at such a high dexterity level, it appeared to him that other fighters were moving in slow motion. Dickinson has speed and quickness like no one before him, he is an amazing physical phenomena.
both of those TKO defeats were due to injuries. I rate Dickinson highly although I think it's a bit early to be talking about the Klitschko's. If he can establish himself a bit more on the domestic scene though against the guys coming up, it'd be nice to see him perhaps move on to a european title shot n then perhaps even a world cruiserweight title shot. He's got a tough test coming up next though imo.
