Default Mark Harris - ABA Champion?

Saw this and wanted to see if anyone could verify it - there's an actor saying he was an ABA Champion in his youth but I can't see his name anywhere on their site or on Wikipedia. It's a pretty bold claim and he's going to play a boxer in an upcoming film so I hope its true! It's this chap called Mark Harris:

imdb.com/name/nm3868342/bio
"Training in his local gym Fitzroy Lodge from the age of seven, he went on to win the ABA Championships in his early teens, becoming a local hero in the process."

"Mark has a boxing background he was ABA Champion at the Fitzroy Lodge and that will add a layer of authenticity.

"Mr Harris, a successful amateur boxer..."

I've never seen his name on any winners lists but I could be mistaken... Is he a former champion? Or telling porkies?
