Luke Campbell Demolishes Andy Harris in One
Craven Park, Hull - Olympic gold medal winner Luke Campbell MBE (1-0, 1KO) made his pro debut with a first round bang. Moments into the fight, Campbell dropped opponent Andy Harris (2-6) on his back. Harris, unable to deal with Campbell's fast punches, was soon dropped for a second time in a blink of an eye. Campbell then pounded on Harris, who was trapped against the ropes, until the referee jumped in to stop the action.
Campbell won a gold medal at the 2012 Olympic Games in the bantamweight division. In April 2013 he agreed to turn professional and signed with Eddie Hearn of Matchroom.
