Whelan made history last year by becoming a two-division champion in Kickboxing Grand Prix. After years training under the tutelage of coach Kieran Keddle at Double K, Luke now leads his own Skywalker Kickboxing team which includes up-and-comers like Ryan Grover and Samuel Wells.
Israel’s Itay Gershon is 15-4 (5 KO) and holds a Glory Kickboxing record of 3-0.
