Luke Campbell is delighted with his victory over Andrew Harris in Hull.

Former Olympic champion Luke Campbell has said that he drew on his experience at London 2012 during his professional debut bout against Andrew Harris.

The Hull-born scrapper, who stopped his opponent in just one minute and 28 seconds, also admitted that he used the home crowd at Craven Park to his advantage.

"I just kept calm," he told BBC Sport. "I took the Olympic experience into this.

"Having my first professional fight, outdoors, in my home town at a packed-out stadium and winning by stoppage in the first round, what more could you ask for?

"All these people are here for us. They're here to support us so I wanted to use them to our advantage."

On the undercard at Craven Park, Kell Brook marked his return from injury with an eight-round defeat of Carson Jones.
