Olympic gold medallist Luke Campbell made it three wins from three in his professional career with another slick display against Lee Connelly. Campbell went into the contest in his home city of Hull having not gone beyond the first round in his two previous outings in the paid ranks. The brave Connelly ensured his opponent broke new ground, but in the end Campbell's undoubted class told and he stopped his rival in the fifth round of a scheduled six.
"That's exactly what I needed," Campbell told Sky Sports. "All credit to Lee, what a tough guy he is, he's a little warrior and I just couldn't break him. He'd have gone to the end, I'm sure he would.
"It was a great fight as I needed some rounds. But it's only my third fight and I'm learning all the time. I think the referee definitely made the right decision because he was taking a fair few shots."Tags: Luke Campbell
