Olympic gold medallist Luke Campbell's second professional bout will be on 7 September in Glasgow.

His fight will appear on the undercard of Ricky Burns' WBO lightweight world-title fight against Raymundo Beltran.

"I want him to box at least once a month, certainly for the next year, and sometimes twice a month," said promoter Eddie Hearn.

The 25-year-old knocked Harris down twice before the referee stopped the fight after just 88 seconds.

"I don't think it's ever happened before, someone turning pro in a stadium fight," said Hearn. "I thought Luke was mad when he suggested it but after I came to Hull and saw the support for him, I wanted to give it a go.

"We wanted to make a statement because we're going to put a lot behind Luke Campbell."
