Olympic gold medal winner Luke Campbell will make his pro debut in his hometown of Hull on Saturday in what should be an exhibition match for him.
Andy Harris lost his first four fights as a pro and was knocked out in three by a decent opponent in Martin Ward – he managed to go the distance against Tom Stalker, another of the olympians that recently turned pro, but that was over just four rounds at the Liverpool Echo so it’s highly likely that Campbell will find the stoppage over six and will want to test out what sort of power he has in his locker. Campbell is one of Britains most successful amateur boxers and his skill level will be leagues above. It will be interesting to see how he adapts to the professional ranks, especially as his class sharp box and move style was so suited to the amateur ranks.
Olympic bronze medalist, Anthony Ogogo, also features on the bill in what will be his third fight as a professional and after seeing his first to outings he looks like a top prospect. If he’s on his game, baring in mind it’s a six rounder, I highly doubt that Boulden will see the end of the sixth round and could go the same way as Kieran Gray did. Ogogo is withut doubt one of Britains best prospects and his exploits on American soil will only improve his experiences.
English super middleweight champion,Rocky Fielding, is another fighter that looks an absolute shoe in for a knockout win. The Liverpool fighter has demonstrated plenty of power winning his last 4 fights by TKO/KO and takes on Doumbia, a Frenchman who’s almost been knockout more times than he has won.
