Luke Campbell debuts on July 13 - Kell Brook v Carson Jones II added to bill

Olympic gold medalist Luke Campbell will make his eagerly awaited professional debut at Craven Park in Hull on July 13, live on Sky Sports.
 
Campbell kicks off life in the paid ranks in his home town. The fight will take place at Hull Kingston Rovers Rugby League, with tickets going on sale on Monday May 20.
 
While Campbell’s pro debut tops the bill, Sheffield’s unbeaten welterweight Kell Brook returns to the ring after nine months out and will face old foe Carson Jones in a rematch of their brutal battle in the Steel City in July.
 
Hull lightweight Tommy Coyle clashes with Derry Mathews for the Commonwealth title, with more names to be added soon.
 
“This is going to be a special night for Hull and a massive night for British boxing,” said Campbell’s promoter Eddie Hearn.
 
“The whole city will have a chance to witness the start of Luke’s professional journey whilst also watching a huge card. Kell Brook returns after a frustrating period, re-matching Carson Jones following their epic battle last July and popular Hull fighter Tommy Coyle has a huge opportunity taking on Derry Mathews for the Commonwealth strap. Fans can expect plenty more cracking fights added to the bill in the coming weeks.’’
 
Tickets will go on sale on Monday, May 20 and will be available from www.hullkr.com and www.matchroomboxing.com.

Crolla V Murray

A lot of people consider the lightweight bout taking place in Manchester this weekend between Anthony Crolla (27-4-1) and John Murray (32-2) to be a very close call indeed. The contest, in UK's second biggest city on Easter Weekend, is for the WBO lightweight Inter-continental title, but the significance of the result means more than the marginal title as it will put them a step closer to a world title fight. Even if this isn't immediately forthcoming, the division is stacked in Britain, and can throw up some massive domestic scraps.

Scott Quigg

Bury's Scott Quigg retained his WBA world super bantamweight title at the Phones 4 U Arena with a second round stoppage of South African Tshifhiwa Munyai, and now looks towards unification fights with Leo Santa Cruz, Kiko Martinez and, hopefully at some point, Carl Frampton.
