Yvan Mendy and Luke Campbell battle it out at Wembley arena, on the undercard of Joshua vs Povetkin. Having fought in 2015, on the undercard of Joshua vs Whyte, Mendy and Campbell have a rematch, 3 years later. Mendy won the first fight, via split decision.

Mendy is aggressive early, Campbell throws more punches, but Mendy, landing a couple of heavy shots. As the rounds go by, it seems to go Campbell's way, as he uses his feet, attacks the body, throws in combinations, is consistent. Campbell boxes very well, Mendy is frustrated, and unable to make Campbell fight his (Mendy's fight). Mendy tries to rally late, does have some success, but Campbell, still mobile, and doing good work.

The cards are all wide, two of them are landslides, all for Campbell.

Luke Campbell beats Yvan Mendy by UD, gets his revenge, and takes a step towards getting another world title opportunity.

Prediction,

Great rematch!
First one was close, was an upset, the rematch was always a good option, and at this point, I don't think Campbell or Mendy have better options.

Campbell was a very good amateur, won Gold in the 2012 Olympics, started brilliantly as a pro, from his debut, to beating Tommy Coyle, but when he lost to Mendy in 2015, on the undercard of Anthony Joshua vs Dillian Whyte, we wondered whether it was an off night, or maybe he stepped up and was found out at a higher level, maybe it was a learning experience which came too early. Since the Mendy loss, Campbell did well, was on a winning streak between the Mendy and Linares fights, was training with Jorge Rubio, beat Argenis Mendez, beat Darleys Perez. Against Linares, Campbell was the best I've ever seen him, terrible start, but he was brilliant for a lot of the fight, had work rate, variety, brilliant defence, he didn't win, but he did very well. Campbell is training with Shane McGuigan now, might be a good career move, McGuigan has proven himself as a top trainer in recent years. Campbell is 30, not old, he's experienced, he probably wouldn't change trainers and take on a challenge like the Mendy rematch if he didn't believe he could be a world champion, and against Linares, he got beat, but he didn't look a fighter who didn't belong at world level, he should work towards another world title opportunity I think. It is a year betwwen the Linares and Mendy fights, he isn't that active, only had the one fight in those 12 months, 6 round scheduled bout back in early may, on the Bellew vs Haye II undercard, stopped Troy James in 5 rounds, that is something I supoose.

Mendy is a very good European and inter-continental level fighter, he hasn't lost a fight since losing to Edis Tatli, who beat him in 2015, he beat Campbell 3 fights later, and since beating Campbell, he has won 7/7. Mendy is the Silver champion, which is good, he isn't fighting at world level though, and whenever he has stepped up to world level, or close to it, he has lost, he lost to Viktor Postol, no shame in that, he lost a landslide, but still, Postol is a very good world level fighter. Mendy is a veteran at 40-4, he is 33, not a young fighter, but he is a brilliant athlete, he is very durable, takes a shot.

Both fighters have been active since the first fight, I think Campbell, as well as obviously the Linares fight, has fought at the higher level, against Perez, and maybe Mendez. Age is on Campbell's side, he is the fresher fighter, I think Mendy had reached his prime when they fought the first time, I think Campbell's best was still to come, and for these reasons, I tnink Campbell will win this fight.

I think it will be competitive again, but I think Campbell will win quite comfortably, not necessarily one sided, but not close, maybe 112-116.

Best I've ever seen from Campbell!
Campbell boxed very well, did the 12 rounds fine, took big shots now and again, but for most of the fight, he used his feet, had good defence, sustained a high work rate, threw punches in bunches, worked the body very well. Mendy was good, again, prepared, bale to inflict damage, good guard, good at cutting off the ring, but he was in against a much better Campbell this time, lost wide.
Great performance from Campbell, outside of Lomachencko and Garcia, I don't see anyone at 135 who I think beats him.
