The British Amateur Boxing Association confirms the departure of Luke Campbell from the Olympic boxing programme
The British Amateur Boxing Association (BABA), which runs the World Class Performance Programme (WCPP) for Olympic boxing, has confirmed that the 2012 Olympic bantamweight gold medallist, Luke Campbell MBE, will not be part of the GB Boxing squad in the 2013-17 Rio Cycle.
His contract with the BABA finished at the end of the 2009-13 London Olympic and he has now left the WCPP to pursue other career opportunities.
Rob McCracken, Performance Director at the British Amateur Boxing Association (BABA) said: “Luke has been a great servant to the World Class Performance Programme for a number of years and an excellent role-model to other members of the squad in both his medal-winning performances and the way he conducts himself inside and outside of the gym.
“It is a disappointment for us that Luke has decided his future lies away from the GB Boxing squad but he departs with our best regards and we wish him every success in his future career.
“As we enter the Rio cycle, the majority of the boxers that competed in London remain part of our squad and we have some excellent talents coming through so the programme has a strong nucleus to work with and a good opportunity to add to the success we have enjoyed in recent years.”
Matthew Holt, Chief Executive of the BABA added: “Whilst we would have liked Luke to stay for the Rio Cycle, he has been part of the GB Boxing squad for many years now and we recognise his wish to pursue other career opportunities and challenges.
“Like other boxers that have represented Great Britain superbly in recent years, such as Tom Stalker and Anthony Ogogo, Luke will remain part of the GB Boxing family and he will always be welcome to visit our gym, spend time with our boxers and pass on his skills and experience and provide them with an insight into what it takes to become Olympic champion.”
Luke Campbell joined the GB Boxing squad in 2007 and went on to become one of Great Britain’s most decorated amateur boxers of all time. In 2008, he became the first Englishman for 53 years to win the European Championship. He missed most of 2009 following surgery on his hand but returned to win a silver medal at the 2011 AIBA World Championships in Baku. In August 2012 he won gold at the Olympic Games in London when he defeated John Joe Nevin of Ireland 14-11 in the bantamweight final.
