Luke Campbell (18-2, 15 KOs) will fight Yvan Mendy (40-4-1, 19 KOs) in a WBC lightweight title final eliminator.

No information yet on the purse bids, who won or where it will happen but Campbell and Mendy will go again in a rematch of their December 2015 bout which Mendy won via split decision in London.

WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman said: "The WBC has been notified that Luke Campbell and Yvan Mendy have reached an agreement for their highly anticipated rematch - final elimination."

A chance for revenge lies in store for Campbell who told Boxing Scene earlier in the week that he is eager to fight the Frenchman again.

"I want to clean Mendy off my record. That Luke Campbell should never have got in the ring that night," he told Scene before revealing he had picked up a virus in the final week.

Mendy, 33, is unbeaten since 2015 - with ten wins - beating Campbell, with his nine other wins coming in France, picking up the WBC Silver lightweight title along the way.

Campbell, 30, went on a five-fight win streak after losing to Mendy before being edged out by Jorge Linares, last September, in another split decision loss when challenging for the Venezuelan's WBA title which he subsequently lost to Vasyl Lomachenko last month.

The Brit returned to the win column last month with a fifth round TKO win against Troy James.

The winner of Campbell-Mendy 2 will have the chance to challenge (WBC champion) Mikey Garcia somewhere down the line, should the pound-for-pound star come through his rumoured unification fight against (IBF champion) Robert Easter Jr.
