Olympic medallist Luke Campbell is to return to the ring almost immediately after making his professional debut on Saturday.

Campbell needed just 88 seconds to defeat Andy Harris in his bow in the paid ranks, delivering a well-received victory in his home city of Hull.

But there will be little rest for the London 2012 gold medallist, who will make his second appearance on the undercard of Ricky Burns' WBO lightweight title defence on September 7 in Glasgow.

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

Campbell's opponent has yet to be confirmed.
