In Hull tonight the new season of Boxing, following the festive break, continues with a promotion that sees the return of Luke Campbell to the ring.

Campbell, a gold medallist at the 2012 London Olympic games, has started his professional career well. With four fights under his belt, he has four wins and tonight has his first fight over eight rounds when he takes on Scott Moises.

However being an Olympic champion does have its downside as Luke remarks ahead of his fifth professional fight, commenting to the media,

?Everybody wants to beat you that little bit more because you are an Olympic champion.?

?I have to be that bit more prepared and that bit more professional in what I do, knowing that.?


Commenting about his progress, in the professional ranks, Luke added,

?I still don?t feel as though I?m as good as I was during the Olympics.?

?There is pressure. There are not many professional boxers who have had four fights and been top of the bill in two of those fights.?

?Through having the experience of the Olympics ? that was serious pressure ? now I look at this and sit back and enjoy it.?


Luke will, once again, be cheered on by a full house at the Hull Ice Arena tonight and here at Vital Boxing we?re taking Luke to make it five in a row with a mid-fight stoppage.
