LUKE CAMPBELL is being lined up for a world title shot in Hull next summer.

The London 2012 Olympic gold medallist stopped Derry Mathews in the fourth round of their domestic clash on Saturday night at Liverpool’s Echo Arena.

Campbell, 29, has now won 15 of his 16 professional bouts, but this was one of the more impressive victories as he continues to rise up the lightweight rankings.

Mathews is a former world title challenger and a heavy hitter.

But it was the Hull man who delivered the big shots here with a left hook to the body flooring Mathews.

The Liverpool fighter got up but it was over moments later when Campbell crunched in another body shot to take the wind out of Mathews’ lungs.

Now Campbell’s promoter Eddie Hearn is eyeing up a world title fight in Hull next summer.

He said: “I want to go back to Hull because we can do an outdoor event there.

“Luke made his debut in front of 8,000, fought Tommy Coyle in front of about 12,000 so you would think a world title fight would do more than 15,000.

“We are in no tearing rush, I would love him to fight for a world title outdoors in Hull late next summer.”
