Luke’s journey, from a young age, has been prolific. A multiple World and European Amateur Champion, Luke then achieved his childhood ambition by winning Gold at the London 2012 Olympics. Soon after, upon ‘going pro’ Luke rapidly rose into a world title challenger, narrowly losing to WBA Lightweight Champion Jorge Linares in September 2017 in a fight many thought Luke deserved to win. Luke’s strong performance in that particular fight proved his ability to fight on the world stage; he is now expected to face either Anthony Crolla or Terry Flanagan in an all-British affair later in 2018.
Outside of boxing, Luke is signed to MOT modeling agency and has a growing commercial portfolio. A very adept public speaker, Luke regularly talks at events both at home and abroad. Luke has spoken at Web Summit, the world’s largest sports tech conference, and for the likes of Land Rover, Sky Sports and has appeared numerous times on Talksport.
Alongside partnerships with Jaguar Land Rover, Everlast, Dafabet and PhD, Luke has partnered with online streaming site UNILAD, who have a combined social reach of over 27 million people, in what is the first venture of its kind in boxing. UNILAD’s videos are viewed some 4 billion times per month.
A Hull boy, born and bred, Luke is married to his long-term partner Lyndsey, with whom he has two young sons, Leo and Lincoln. Luke is passionate about providing opportunities for disadvantaged children and set up The Luke Campbell Foundation in 2014.
