YVAN MENDY insists he is “stronger than the last time” as he prepares to face Luke Campbell for the second time, in a WBC lightweight world title eliminator.

Mendy defeated Campbell via split decision in December 2015, handing the London 2012 Olympian his first professional defeat.

On that night, Campbell’s former Olympic teammate Anthony Joshua topped the bill, defeating rival Dillian Whyte via a seventh round stoppage to claim the British title.
