Lampkin had a stellar amateur career, winning the National AAU Light Heavyweight Championship in 1980. He became a professional later that year. On June 11, 1982, Lampkin, along with another Youngstown-area boxer, Earnie Shavers, had an undercard spot on the Larry Holmes-Gerry Cooney fight.Lampkin's professional boxing career peaked on March 22, 1990, when he won the IBF Cruiserweight Title with a technical knockout of British boxer Glenn McCrory, in London. He defended the belt once against Siza Makathini before vacating the title in 1991. This decision came in the wake of a controversy surrounding Lampkin's participation in an IBF bout in South Africa, which prompted the WBA and WBC to withhold recognition of his title. (Both bodies had sanctions against fighters who competed in that country.)
