The record books show the Wembley middleweight goes into his third pro fight at the York Hall in Bethnal Green on Saturday, October 12 still looking for his first stoppage.
Dwyer says that – and his appearance - doesn’t mean he can’t bang.
“I’m very slim,” said the 26 year old, “and that has worked to my advantage many, many times. I like it when my opponents look at me and think I’m a small middleweight. Once I hit them, they feel differently.
“Muscles don’t win you fights. It’s about the timing of the punch.”
Dwyer says his target is the world middleweight championship and says “skills, mindset and work ethic” are the keys to success – along with time watching You Tube.
“I study a lot of fighters,” he said. “Brawling is good to watch – and good to do – but it’s the science of boxing that interests me. I’ve watched nearly all of Andre Ward’s fights and I’ve watched a lot of Marvin Hagler, Sugar Ray Robinson, Salvador Sanchez and Carlos Monzon.
“I try to learn something from all of them. I study how they block, move their feet and set up their punches.”
Dwyer says he’s going to keep throwing punches until he’s conquered the world.
“That is the target, 1,000 per cent,” he said. “My thing is that you never give up. It’s OK to moan every now and again, but don’t give up. If it doesn’t work this time, try again. It’s about mindset and work ethic. There are days when I feel tired and I don’t want to train. I still train. My mind is against me, but I still push myself and you remember you did get when a fight gets hard. I know that I’m string enough to do what needs to be done.”
So far Dwyer has had things all his own way in the professional ring, winning every session against Karim Khan and Hassan Khan.
He says fans will see the best of him when he’s up against opponents who want to knock him out.
“I want to put on a show,” said Dwyer, “and when your opponent isn’t throwing much it doesn’t dive you much to work with.
“I’m a counter puncher and I want someone to come and throw punches and test me, but it’s all about adapting to what’s in front of you and getting the win.”
