Hull's Luke Campbell bags a second boxing Gold for the region
Hull's Luke Campbell shrugged off an attack of nerves to book his place in the last 16 of the Olympic bantamweight division.
Promoter Eddie Hearn believes Olympic hero Luke Campbell has all the hallmarks to become the complete package as he prepares to make his professional debut.
Almost 12 months on from taking bantamweight gold in London, Campbell returns to the ring at Hull Kingston Rovers' MS3 Craven park ground for his clash against Andy Harris, which will be his first in the full-time ranks.
"We are talking about the most successful amateur boxer ever.
There is a lot of weight on his shoulders but he's such a talented fighter and as a commercial entity and commercial brand he is exactly what we are looking for in boxing.

I'm all ready for today. The weigh in. 1pm queens gardens. See you all there. Also live on skysports news. http://t.co/sAKD5QgxVQ
