SOT, Luke Campbell, boxer: " I've been through a lot having the experience of London Olympics, crowds, the pressure of going out there and getting medals and winning. And obviously in the professional career, going over to America to fight Linares for a world title with everything that was going on as well. So you know, I've learnt from my experiences and I'm here today and boy do I love a challenge. I've always said for years being in boxing to be the best you have to beat the best and this is certainly one of those challenges."
