LUKE CAMPBELL has got the fight he craves. He will rematch Yvan Mendy in a final eliminator for the WBC world title on the September 22 undercard of Anthony Joshua-Alexander Povetkin at Wembley Stadium.

Mendy and Campbell have history. In 2015 Luke suffered a shock defeat to the Frenchman. The Olympic gold medallist is now determined to settle the score.

Campbell did rebuild from that loss and went on to challenge Jorge Linares, going the distance with him in a world title clash last year.
