Anthony Joshua is 'superstar' but I am not jealous

Luke Campbell insists he feels no jealousy towards fellow 2012 Olympic gold medallist Anthony Joshua as the heavyweight world champion prepares for another high-profile title defence.

Joshua, 28, won his first world title in April 2016 and now holds three of the four world heavyweight title belts.

But Campbell (18-2 15 KOs), 30, has yet to lift a world title and has twice lost on points -- to Venezuela's Jorge Linares for the WBA lightweight title via a split decision a year ago, and to Yvan Mendy (40-4-1, 19 KOs), of France, in December 2015.

He faces Mendy, 33, in a WBC world title eliminator on the undercard of Joshua's sixth title defence against Russian Alexander Povetkin at Wembley Stadium on Sept. 22.
