LUKE CAMPBELL STATEMENT

Luke Campbell MBE has withdrawn from his fight on March 7 due to the ill health of his father.

The Olympic Gold medal star was set to feature in a huge clash at the Hull Ice Arena as promoter Eddie Hearn looks to set-up an all-Hull Lightweight blockbuster with Tommy Coyle in the summer.

“After a period in intensive care, my Dad has now been moved to Dove House Hospice and I feel it’s important that I spend every second possible with my family,” said Campbell. “I hope that the fans understand my decision and I shall be back in action soon.”

The show on March 7 goes ahead with Campbell’s fight set to be replaced on the card, while Coyle faces Martin Gethin and Sam Eggington faces Shayne Singleton. Undefeated Matchroom stars Rocky Fielding, Bradley Saunders and Gamal Yafai are also in action.

Fans that require refunds for the show should contact their point of purchase.
