LUKE CAMPBELL, the Olympic gold medallist and former world title challenger, is on a revenge mission.

He has not forgotten his 2015 loss to French lightweight Yvan Mendy. The two will rematch on Anthony Joshua’s September 22 undercard at Wembley stadium. To increase the appeal of the encounter, this will be a final eliminator for the WBC lightweight title.

This will also be Campbell’s first fight under the guidance of new trainer Shane McGuigan. In the past McGuigan has had the Frenchman in for sparring with some of his other fighters and is therefore convinced he knows how to beat him.
