Olympic boxing gold medallist Luke Campbell's first professional opponent will be 30 year old Gloucester fighter Andy Harris. Harris has won 2 of his last 3 fights, and is promising to give Campbell a proper test in front of a huge hometown crowd in Hull.

Campbell’s debut is part of a stellar line-up at Hull KR's Craven Park. Unbeaten Sheffield welterweight Kell Brook faces a rematch aginst the dangerous American Carson Jones, and Hull’s Tommy Coyle takes on Liverpool’s Derry Mathews for the vacant Commonwealth lightweight title.

Campbell’s fellow Olympic medallist Anthony Ogogo boxes for the fourth time in the pro ranks, and is joined on the undercard by Beverly's Curtis Woodhouse, and young Hull talents Joel Haigh and Zak Collins.
