I agree Luke is already a mega star in Hull but I doubt he'd sell out 25K at the KC for his debut though I could certainly see him headlining at a sold out Hull Arena in front of 4 or 5K quite easily.
If he ever challenged for a world title fight then I could see him selling out the KC then but unless he makes adjustments to his style, he may find it hard have his local popularity transend beyond the city of Hull.
I will always tune in to support him because he's a local lad but the harsh reality is it's an entertainment business and I'm not sure people would make a point tuning in to watch a tall, upright bantam-weight popping out left hands all night to a points victory.
