Expected money for a fight (4)


I believe the answer is:


'for a fight' is the definition.
(duel is a kind of fight)

'expected money' is the wordplay.
'expected' becomes 'due' (similar in meaning).
'money' becomes 'l' (L can mean 'pounds').

(Other definitions for duel that I've seen before include "Affair of honour (between two men)" , "Prearranged fight with deadly weapons between two people" , "Fight over a point of honour" , "Gentlemen's disagreement" , "Personal combat" .)

I've seen this clue in the Evening Standard.
