British lightweight prospect Luke Campbell, the 2012 Olympic bantamweight gold medalist, will fight in his second professional bout on Sept. 7 in Glasgow, Scotland on the undercard of lightweight titlist Ricky Burns' defense against Raymundo Beltran, Matchroom Sport promoter Eddie Hearn announced. In his pro debut last Saturday, Campbell needed just 88 seconds to blow out Andy Harris in front of a hometown crowd in Hull, England.

"It's a dream start, I couldn't have asked for anything better," Campbell said. "I prepared for six tough rounds, but I just relaxed and the shots flowed and I got him out of there. I was in control of myself, the nerves and the occasion. I soaked it up and loved it. I landed that lovely right hook and he just didn't recover."
