Tyson Fury is warned that he “wants no more” part of Deontay Wilder after his trilogy, ruling out a fourth fight.
Fury will share the ring with his American rival for the third time in Las Vegas on Saturday.
This comes after a dramatic draw in 2018, before Wilder was beaten in their February 2020 rematch.
It involved a contracted trilogy bout, but Fury tried to walk away from it instead fighting 31-year-old British rival Anthony Joshua.
But Wilder’s successful mediation once again secured his shot at redemption, pitting the heavyweights against each other.
And this may be the third and final time that the trilogy does not include any rights to a rematch for the Loser.
This leaves Wilder’s co-manager Shelley Finkel to doubt the demand for a fourth installment, and believe it may also be in Fury’s best interest.
Finkel told SunSport: “Not at this point. We’ll see what happens in the fight, but not at this point.
“And I think, if my foresight is right, Fury won’t want any more part of him after this.”

Wilder, 35, was supposed to take on 33-year-old Fury last July, but it was constantly delayed amid the coronavirus pandemic.
This has allowed the ex-WBC champion an additional nine months to focus on revenge, now under the guidance of Malik Scott, whom he defeated in 2014.
Wilder dismissed his assistant coach, Mark Breland, who threw the towel against Fury, and promoted Scott from team member to head coach.
In the period after his first loss, he also built a gym behind his Alabama mansion.
Wilder, once a media presence, is now radio silent, repeatedly accusing Fury of fraud, without evidence.
And I guess, if my foresight is correct, Fury wouldn’t want any more part of him after this.

According to Finkel, who has been with the Bronze Bomber since early 2008, it has allowed him to position himself in extreme conditions.
He said: “I feel like I’ve been with him for almost 14 years now, and it’s the best I’ve ever seen him.
“From everything combined, including physical and mental. He’s physically strong, mentally really focused on it.
“I just don’t see how Deontay isn’t going to kick him out this time.”
