• Kell Brook gets world title aspirations back on track

The Olympic champion Luke Campbell made a dream start to life in the paid ranks with a first-round stoppage of Andy Harris in his home town of Hull.

Campbell rose to prominence after winning gold in the bantamweight division at London 2012 and knocked Harris to the canvas twice in the opening round of his professional debut. A flurry of punches forced the referee to stop the action after just 88 seconds at Craven Park.

Kell Brook got his world title aspirations back on track and settled an old score with an eighth-round stoppage of Carson Jones in their re-match.

The pair, who fought a few pounds above the welterweight limit, first met 12 months ago, with Brook claiming a razor-thin majority decision victory despite fading badly in the later rounds.
