FRENCHMAN Yvan Mendy has won seven fights on the bounce since taking Luke Campbell’s undefeated record in 2015 and therefore resents the idea that he’s merely a barometer of the Hull man’s progress – and improvements – this Saturday (September 22) at Wembley Stadium.

He goes further than that, too. With a WBC silver belt, and a number one ranking with that organisation, Mendy feels he has been worthy of a world title shot for some time now.

“I do feel a bit frustrated that I haven’t had a world title opportunity yet,” said the 33-year-old. “He (Campbell) lost to me and yet he was able to fight Linares for the world title. So that does leave me a bit of frustrated.
