Profile:

 A member of Birtley Boxing Club since he was 12-years-old, Luke boasts a prolific set of achievements, including England Boxing Schools and Junior titles as a young boxer.  He also competed at the 2011 AIBA World Junior Championships.

In 2015, Luke and his brother Pat became only the second pair of twins to win England Boxing Elite national titles on the same day equalling the achievement of Darran and Stewart Langley in 2005. Having taken part in competitions together all of their lives, the brothers continued their journey by joining the GB Boxing squad at the same time.

A member of the British Lionhearts squad for the 2016 World Series of Boxing, Luke won three of his four bouts, his sole defeat coming in the final against Cuba’s multiple world champion, Lazaro Alvarez. Luke has continued to compete for the British Lionhearts for their 2017 and 2018 season.

He was one of twelve boxers selected by Team England to represent his country at the 2018 Commonwealth Games, where he secured a bronze medal.

When he is not with the Podium squad in Sheffield, Luke returns to Birtley Boxing Club to continue his training at weekends.
