Luke Campbell hopes to produce another dazzling display on the Carl Froch-George Groves bill this Saturday.

The Olympic gold medallist has made an impressive start to his professional career and returns to action on the undercard of Carl Froch's world title clash with George Groves, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

"It's early days, I'm still learning a lot, but I'm confident in my ability and what I can do."

Campbell has halted all of his three opponents, but he next faces unbeaten Frenchman Morgan Duthes in Manchester.

Duthes, with five straight wins, could test Campbell's ring skills and the Hull man wants to pass his latest challenge in the paid ranks with flying colours.

"Every person in front of you in the ring wants to cause you problems and wants to win but you know it's how you adapt and do the job in there," he told Sky Sports News.

"It seems to be going well. It's early days, I'm still learning a lot, but I'm confident in my ability and what I can do. My aims are to give the fans a good fight and put a great show on."


Campbell took five rounds to despatch his most recent opponent Lee Connelly and admits he needs tougher fights to continue his learning process.

"That's what I wanted, I wanted the rounds and I knew Lee would give me the rounds because he's a tough kid," said the 26-year-old.

"I could have upped the gears earlier on in the fight, but I didn't because I wanted the rounds. It's the first time I've been over three rounds.

"When the time was right I upped the gears and got him out of there in the fifth round, but it was a great fight, the fans loved it and it was a good experience for me and I'll look at that, improve and go on to the next one."
