Default Enforcing small claims court judgment abroad

I have a small claims court final judgment in the USA for 2500 dollars against a guy in Britain. What is the easiest way to enforce that now and collect?
He refuses to simply pay!

I wish to inform you that you may file for enforcement of judgment in courts of UK. Generally in absence of treaty you may enforce judgment in UK through courts of UK. Your judgment may be recognized if it is final judgment and court was having jurisdiction over matter. It should not be obtained through fraud.

Make sure he has assets to pay you, or your time and money will be wasted enforcing the US judgment in the UK. It does require a bit of time and effort.
