Amateur career

Clayton began training at his great-uncle's gym, City of Lakes Boxing Club in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, and fought his first amateur bout at the age of 11. He quit boxing for two years at the age of 17 to finish high school. The 24-year-old Nova Scotian Olympian Clayton, along with Simon Kean, were the only two Canadian male boxers to qualify for the 2012 Olympics.

Clayton was a quarter-finalist and 5th-place finisher at welterweight at the 2012 American Boxing Olympic Qualification Tournament. Five spots were available for qualification at welterweight and Custio qualified over the other quarter-finalists since his loss was to the eventual winner Myke Carvalho. Qualification being dependent on how the winning opponents performed in later rounds was controversial and will not be used in future Olympics. At the 2012 Summer Olympics (results) Clayton became the first Canadian to win a boxing bout in 8 years when he beat Óscar Molina in the opening round. Then he beat the Australian Cameron Hammond, before losing to Fred Evans in the quarterfinal.
