Olympic champion Luke Campbell has announced he is taking a break from boxing after his father was diagnosed with cancer.

The 26-year-old, who has won all five of his fights since turning professional, had been scheduled to fight on the same card as WBA world super bantamweight champion Scott Quigg and fellow Olympian Anthony Joshua in Manchester on Saturday, but has pulled out in order to spend more time with his family.

"Following my father's cancer diagnosis, I have decided to take a break from competing," read a statement on Campbell's official website.

"The last few months have been particularly difficult for my family and I and it's been hard to focus on my training. Anyone that knows me will tell you how meticulous I am with my preparation going into a fight.

"With this in mind, I feel it is only right to be with my family at this difficult time until I can fully focus on my boxing.

"My family and I thank everyone for their support and understanding and I look forward to returning to action in the near future."
