Here is my best explanation:

'avoid' is the definition.
(eluding is a kind of avoiding)

'a dodgy duel with an inevitable conclusion' is the wordplay.
'a dodgy' indicates anagramming the letters.
'with' says to put letters next to each other.
'conclusion' suggests the final letters.
The last letter of 'inevitable' is 'e'.
'duel' is an anagram of 'elud'.
'elud'+'e'='ELUDE'
