Luke Jackson turned professional in 2013 after a successful amateur career and is currently a world ranked featherweight contender.

Jackson was a highly successful amateur, winning a bronze medal at the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne as well as the Australian Championships in 2006, 2007, 2010, 2011 and 2012. Competing in one of the toughest divisions in the Australian amateur scene, Jackson holds amateur wins over George Kambosos, Joel Brunker, Paul Flemming as well as future WBA title holder Nicholas Walters. Jackson was named Australia’s team captain at the Commonwealth Games in 2010 and the London Olympics in 2012. At the 2010 Commonwealth Games, Jackson won his first two bouts before he was defeated by the eventual gold-medallist Thomas Stalker in the quarter finals.

After turning professional in 2013, Jackson won the Australian featherweight title in 2015 with a split decision over Will Young. Jackson worked his way up the WBO world rankings, earning a top ranking and a potential shot at their title holder Oscar Valdez. With Valdez out due to injuries, Jackson faced former junior featherweight world title holder Carl Frampton for the interim title, losing via TKO in the ninth round. Since the loss, Jackson has rebounded with three wins and is ranked by Australian Boxing Zone as the top featherweight in the country.
