Fighting, Competing and Winning – it’s in Jordan Thompson’s DNA. His father, Prof. Geoff Thompson MBE is a former 5 time World Karate Champion while his mother, Janice Thompson is also a former World Karate Champion. It was no surprise then that their eldest son Jordan was destined for a life in sport.

As a youngster Thomson competed at national level in athletics, swimming and lacrosse and as a footballer he spent a year on the books at Manchester City’s Youth Academy. It was in Tennis however where he really excelled consistently ranking in the UK top ten throughout his teenage years.

Despite the family background in karate Thompson was something of a late convert to combat sports. However having become increasingly frustrated by the lack of opportunities available to him on the tennis circuit he turned his attention to combat and after an initial stint in MMA it was the boxing ring where the 6 foot 7 inch Mancunian became truly determined to make his mark and emulate his parents successes.

Having learned his trade sparring and training alongside reigning World Heavyweight Champions Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk Thompson has also recently linked up with the renowned trainer Tony Sims. With the experience of Sims on board and with the world’s leading promoter, Eddie Hearn behind him the secret is well and truly out.

Currently undefeated in 15 professional fights, with 12 of those wins coming by knockout Thompson is the current IBF European Champion and rated number 6 in the World. On September 30th Thompson will headline at the Wembley Arena in London when he challenges for the IBF World Cruiserweight title against Jai Opetaia live on DAZN.
