By Terence Dooley

Promoter Eddie Hearn will also usher in a new signing to Matchroom on Tuesday.  With speculation rife at ringside and Matchroom close-lipped, the rumour mill has cranked into life and thrown out a number of possibilities.  All the signs point towards Team GB’s Luke Campbell — the bantamweight gold medal winner at the 2012 Olympic Games and a silver medalist at the 2011 World Amateur Boxing Championships — with his first fight taking place in Hull on a bill that will be topped by a lightweight title clash.  If you're betting man, and the 'Scene doesn't condone that type of behaviour, then go all on in on the 25-year-old.  All will be revealed come Tuesday.
