British boxers secured a five-medal haul in the finals of the Algirdas Sociksa tournament in Lithuania.

Hull bantamweight Luke Campbell claimed his third gold of the year with a convincing 11-7 victory over Dennis Ceylan of Denmark.

London lightweight Martin Ward also won gold with an 11-4 destruction of Armenian Garnik Haratyunan.

Lightweight Tom Stalker; middleweight Anthony Ogogo and heavyweight Simon Vallily earned bronze medals.

The medal count at the 13-nation contest in Vilnius brings the GB men's team total to nine golds, four silvers and 13 bronzes in the seven tournaments held so far this year.

Campbell, 24, has not been beaten in three years and used his speed to dominate against the Dane.

Campbell was named Best Boxer of the Tournament.

Meanwhile Ward, who is regarded as a hot prospect for the 2012 Olympics, turned in an accomplished performance against an opponent who had recently moved up weight categories.

The 23-year-old scored six points in the final round with some powerful body shots to win his first international gold.

The men's European Championships are scheduled to begin in Turkey on 16 June.
