Professional career

Debut fight

After leaving the amateurs ranks Platov was based in Belgium when he became a professional. His first pro bout was in May 2001, winning his first fight in Bruges, Belgium, when Platov beat fellow debutant French fighter Jacques Bret with a first round knockout.

Belgian base

Platov fought all of his first 20 fights in Belgium winning all of his fights, 16 by KO, with the exception of one which was a points defeat to Ludovic Mace, although he faced Mace again six months later and Platov avenged the defeat and KO'd Mace in the third round.

First belt

During his time being based in Belgium, Platov fought for his first title belt against Belarussian 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.

Move to Germany

He later moved to Germany where he lost his second fight to hard-punching Vladimir Virchis by late KO (he was leading at that point) but beat amateur star Mazikin and several clubfighters like George Arias and Cisse Salif.
