Luke Campbell MBE returns to action in Liverpool on July 12 live on sky Sports, and the Olympic hero says he cannot wait to lace the gloves up again.
Campbell took time off for family reasons after racing to 5-0 in the paid ranks with four stoppage wins since turning pro in July 2013, with his last action a final round stoppage of Scott Moises in February in his first eight-round test.
Anybody who watched Matchroom’s ‘Fighting Pride’ show live on Sky Sports last night had witnessed something special; the fight fans that were present at Hull’s Ice Arena are truly the lucky ones for the event was one that will not be forgotten anytime soon.
On paper the evening looked promising with a few intriguing match-ups but nobody could possibly have been expecting the drama and excitement that ran through pretty much the whole of the four hour broadcast.
There is one fighter who featured on the bill whom I want to pay particular attention to but first I will briefly run through the evening’s action.
The first bout was a contest for the British super-bantamweight title, vacated by Kid Galahad as he seeks European honours, between Gavin McDonnell and Leigh Wood. Alongside such boxers as Kell Brook and Kid Galahad, real name Abdul Barry Awad, Wood fights out of the Ingle Gym and exhibits the slippery and awkward style that the gym is famed for.
Local stars face acid tests on home turf tomorrow
Hull stars Luke Campbell MBE and Tommy Coyle have vowed to keep winning and bringing big-time boxing to Hull as they prepare for action tomorrow at the sold-out Hull Ice Arena, live on Sky Sports.
Over the following three Saturdays five of Britain’s leading top prospects will be live in action up and down the country. All five, three of which gained medals at the London 2012 Olympics, have not only the talent to become world champion but could potentially go on to one day be great, legendary even.
Britain is currently a melting pot rich with young, brilliant talent but what can this recent sprout of success be credited to? Surely the funding now available to young amateur boxers plays a significant part, which has vigorously developed since Audley Harrison became the first British fighter to win an Olympic gold medal in the super-heavyweight division in the 2000 Sydney Games and, four years later in Athens, Amir Khan taking home a silver medal in the light-weight division. In the 2008 Beijing Olympics Britain had another gold medallist in James DeGale, further strengthening the position of our young amateur fighters.
