With the likes of Tommy Coyle and Luke Campbell putting boxing in Hull on the map as of late, the whole city has been enthused by the newfangled status of gyms such as St. Paul’s Amateur Boxing Club. Lightweight Campbell and division rival Tommy Coyle have created a buzz in the city.
Both recently faced tough opposition at Hull’s Ice Arena in October. Coyle defeated ex-World Champion Michael Katsidis by stoppage in front of another sold out promoted by Matchroom Sports headed up by Eddie Hearn and his band of merry men.
