Luke Campbell returns on March 26
- Updated: February 18, 2016
Luke Campbell MBE is set to return to the ring on March 26, as he’ll take on Gary Sykes at the Sheffield Arena on Sky Sports.
Campbell (12-1, 10 KOs) is coming off his first pro loss, having been on the wrong side of a split decision against Yvan Mendy in December.
Sykes will have other ideas though, and the Dewsbury man will be aiming to hand a second defeat to Campbell and move into title contention in the Lightweight division himself.
Now under the tutelage of Jorge Rubio, Campbell has been training in Miami, and hopes to get back on track.
“I’ve made plenty of changes since the Mendy fight,” said Campbell. “I wanted to get straight back into action and I wasn’t interested in an eight or 10 round comeback fight, I wanted to get straight back into big fights and Gary is a fight I can really get my teeth into. Gary will have plenty of support and I’m expecting a tough fight and a great performance.”
Campbell-Sykes will be part of the card that is headlined by Kell Brook’s welterweight title defense against Kevin Bizier.
