Heyman battled on and put together a 7-1 stretch that included wins over former WBC Continental Americas Light Heavyweight Champion - Ray Berry (19-7-1, 7 ko) and stopping former IBC Welterweight Title Challenger - Roland Commings.
It was August 20, 2004 when Heyman faced former New Mexico Amateur State Champion - Joseph Brady (13-1-1, 6 ko) for his New Mexico State Super Middleweight Title belt. It was a great night for Heyman as the defending champion could not answer the bell for round 5.
Max Heyman went 2-1-1 after that bout, and earned another title shot, this time it was for the vacant NABA Light-Heavyweight Title. He had to travel to Montreal, Quebec Canada and face undefeated local star Adrian Diaconu (20-0, 13 ko). The Hometown boy won via 4th round knockout.
3 fights later, Heyman got a shot at the vacant NABF Light-Heavyweight Championship. But, again, he had to travel to face an unbeaten favorite in their hometown. This time it was Chris Henry (18-0, 15 ko), and Heyman was stopped in round 2 of the bout scheduled for 12.
Max bounced back with a win over Louisiana's Roy Ashworth, and then split a pair of cross-town grudge matches against "Mad" Mike Alderete also of Albuquerque. Heyman lost the first meeting by split decision, but got his revenge, stopping Alderete in the 8th round of the rematch.
Heyman defeated Chicago's Chris Thomas by unanimous decision, and then went out with two title bouts to end his professional career. First traveling to Magdeburg, Germany, losing to Hometown Champion Robin Krasniqi (38-2, 14 ko) for his WBO International Light-Heavyweight Title. And then his final professional bout June 13, 2014 traveling to Saint Joseph, MO and moving up in weight, losing a challenge for the WBC Continental Americas Cruiserweight Championship against knockout machine and defending champion Olanrewaju Durodola (17-2, 16 ko) in the main event.
